Religious leaders write to oppose House Bill H.R. 1773: the Agricultural Guestworker Act

The agricultural labor provisions of the Senate Bill are the result of a compromise between the United Farm Workers and all of the nation’s major grower associations  representing both large and small farms. Both sides made concessions to reach the agreement.  However, Rep. Bob  Goodlatte, (R, Virginia)  the chair of the House Judiciary Committee, chose to ignore the historic  agreement.  Instead,  he introduced the Agricultural Guestworker Act,  H.R.1773 .
Religious leaders sent the  letter to  Rep. Goodlatte at NFWM’ s request, opposing the bill.  Click HERE for the letter.
