Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren to Introduce Immigration Reform Bill

Oct. 30 Press Conference Scheduled at Nisei Farmers League Office in Fresno 

A Press Conference is planned on Wednesday, October 30, 2019, at the same time Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren, Chair of the Judiciary Committee will introduce her bill in the House of Representatives. This is an immigration reform bill to improve agricultural job opportunities, benefits and security for undocumented workers in the United States. This bill also allows for the petition of spouses and children to be granted status as well. The title of the legislation is “Farm Workforce Modernization Act.”

Manuel Cunha, Jr., President of Nisei Farmers League praised representative Lofgren, “Congresswoman Lofgren has worked tirelessly and is committed to getting much-needed immigration reform, which has been long over-due. She is working with other representatives in our Valley, including Congressmen Costa, Panetta and LaMalfa, who also believe our hard-working laborers and their families must feel safe and be granted legal status.”

Please join in supporting the “Farm Workforce Modernization Act” being introduced in Washington, D. C. and standing with our Congressional representatives, our religious groups, our law enforcement, education institutions, the sports world and other agricultural groups by attending our Press Conference.
