Republicans have stood in the way of immigration reform

Posted 3 November 2022 at 2:18 pm


The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that about 73% of farm workers are migrants and that half of those are undocumented.

Our immigration system is broken and has been for many years. In 2014 a bipartisan immigration bill, supported by John McCain and Lindsay Graham, failed because Republicans in the House refused to bring up the bill for a vote.

President Biden has proposed an immigration legislation on his first day in office but Republicans, like Lee Zeldin and Claudia Tenney, refuse to work with Democrats to fix our immigration system. If voters are truly concerned about our immigration system and the need for farm workers then vote for Democrats this election.
