Guest Blog: Protect Hard Fought Gains for Migrant Farm workers in Senate Bill

“We owe [immigration reform] to those lost in Los Gatos and all of the other migrant farmworkers who have fed our nation for years.” – MJS

Mark’s guest post for the AILA leadership blog focuses on the positive aspects of the Senate immigration bill for immigrant agricultural workers and the need to fight hard against the draconian bill introduced by House Judiciary Chairman Goodlatte. Goodlatte’s proposal imposes a system akin to the hated Bracero program, in which the US imported farm workers for short periods, provided them with no real workplace, wage, or housing protections and when the need for their work ended suddenly deported them.   Mark calls on the Agricultural industry and the farm worker unions to continue to fight for the just reforms passed by the Senate.
