Farmworker Justice Statement in Opposition to House Immigration Bills

The House of Representatives is set to vote this week on two immigration bills— Rep. Goodlatte’s
“Securing America’s Future Act” (the “Goodlatte bill”) and the Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2018 (the “Ryan bill”). Farmworker Justice strongly opposes both bills. Instead of recognizing the valuable contributions of immigrants to our country, these bills reflect hostility towards immigration and immigrants, including farmworkers and their family members.
