AFBF Study: Immigration Reform Must Include Guest-Worker Provisions

WASHINGTON, February 7, 2006 – Failure to include comprehensive guest-worker provisions in any new or reformed immigration law could cause up to $9 billion annually in overall losses to the U.S. agriculture industry and losses of up to $5 billion annually in net farm income, according to a detailed study released by the American Farm Bureau Federation today.

If Congress ultimately approves a new immigration law that does not account for agriculture’s needs for guest workers, like the bill approved by the House last year, then the consequences for American agriculture will be dire, according to the study.
