United Fresh Produce Association Addresses Biden Administration's Comments on Immigration Reform for Agriculture



WASHINGTON, DC - Earlier this week, President Biden addressed his commitment to solving a pressing industry challenge as he called on Congress to pass bipartisan immigration reform. This includes a clear path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, especially dreamers and farmworkers. In response, United Fresh Produce Association recently weighed in on President Biden’s comments.

Robert Guenther, Senior Vice President of Public Policy, United Fresh Produce Association“United Fresh Produce Association and its members thank President Biden for his leadership in recognizing the grave importance of reforming our immigration laws as they relate to our agricultural workforce,” said United Fresh's Senior Vice President of Policy, Robert Guenther.

This reform will create an earned roadmap to citizenship for undocumented individuals, promote immigrant and refugee integration and citizenship, protect workers from exploitation and improve the employment verification process, and grow the economy, according to an article from The Hill.

“By raising the importance of passing the agricultural immigration reform during his address to the nation, President Biden has made it crystal clear that this issue, which has vexed agriculture for decades, can and must be addressed immediately by the U. S. Senate in the same bipartisan manner that enabled it to pass the House of Representatives,” Guenther continued. “United Fresh looks forward to continuing to work with the Biden administration and the Congress to have meaningful immigration reform signed into law this year.”
