Oppose expansion of the guest worker program

Posted on 13. Oct, 2017 by in Action Alerts

Rep. Goodlatte has just introduced the “Agricultural Guestworker Act” in the Judiciary Committee. This bill creates a modern day Bracero program and would undermine the wages and working conditions of all agricultural workers.This bill comes at the same time that other members of Congress are trying to use the appropriations process to expand the scope of the current H-2A program in a way that will harm both US and immigrant workers.

Help the United Farm Workers and a broad coalition of almost 150 groups oppose this bill. Instead of taking agriculture back to the 1940’s, join us in asking Congress to refocus on the one thing that could stabilize agriculture quickly — providing farm workers already laboring in the US with a path to lawful permanent residency and eventual citizenship.
