When House republicans came out of their recent retreat they listed immigration reform as one of the priorities for the year.

South Dakota Congresswoman Kristi Noem says she favors reform, but in a certain order…

 

Noem says with South Dakota’s push for dairy farm expansions, immigration reform could help with workers for those facilities……

 

Noem says the ag visa program also needs some changes…

 

Despite reform being on the list of priorities, most House leaders don’t expect any action until next year, after this year’s election.
