Coalition Letter to Congress: AgJOBS

April 11, 2005

April 11, 2005


Dear Member of Congress:


The undersigned organizations and individuals, representing a broad cross-section of America, join together to ask you to support enactment of S. 359 and H.R. 884, the Agricultural Job Opportunities, Benefits and Security Act of 2005 (AgJOBS). This landmark bipartisan legislation would achieve historic reforms to our nation’s labor and immigration laws as they pertain to agriculture. The legislation reflects years of negotiations on complex and contentious issues among employer and worker representatives and leaders in Congress.


A growing number of our leaders in Congress, as well as the President, recognize that our nation’s immigration policy is flawed and that, from virtually every perspective, the status quo is untenable. America needs reforms that are compassionate, realistic and economically sensible – reforms that also enhance the rule of law and contribute to national security. AgJOBS represents the coming together of historic adversaries in a rare opportunity to achieve reforms supportive of these goals, as well as our nation’s agricultural productivity and food security.


AgJOBS represents a balanced solution for American agriculture, a critical element of a comprehensive solution, and one that can be enacted now with broad bipartisan support. For these reasons, we join together to encourage the Congress to enact promptly S. 359 and H.R. 884, the Agricultural Job Opportunities, Benefits, and Security Act of 2005.


Thank you.
