AGRICULTURE OP-ED CAMPAIGN
 
In fall 2012, as Congress turned its attention back to immigration reform, ImmigrationWorks worked with farmers to publish a series of op-ed pieces. Growers across the country raised their voices – calling on lawmakers to come together around a labor fix for agriculture. Among those who signed op-eds, a blueberry farmer in Mississippi, an onion farmer in Texas and a tobacco grower in North Carolina.
