GREEN BAY, WI – December 3, 2014 — President Obama’s plans for immigration reform does not address the very important need of dairy farmers now or in the future. Our immigration system needs permanent reform, and that can only be accomplished through action by Congress. Democrats and Republicans must come together to fix this broken system. Workers on dairy farms need permanent relief and dairy farmers need their future labor needs addressed.

We are hopeful that, in light of the President’s stated philosophy, dairy farmers and their workers will be allowed to continue their work to provide America with an abundant supply of milk and dairy products without threat or harassment. But we urge Congress to take action in 2015 to resolve this issue once and for all.
