The Immigration and Rural Communities Working Group of the National Rural Assembly recently hosted a virtual "Immigration Roundtable". Listen to the program below.
In July, the White House released a report entitled "Fixing our Broken Immigration System: The Economic Benefits to Agriculture and Rural Communities" which lays out a rural case in favor of comprehensive immigration reform.
This roundtable discussion featured representatives from the White House and rural advocates to discuss the report, the proposed comprehensive immigration bill S. 744, and answered questions from participants on immigration.
Here's a list of panelists:
- Felicia Escobar, Director of Immigration Policy, Domestic Policy Council
- Tirso Moreno, Director, Florida Farmworkers Association
- Erica Lomelli, Policy Director, UFW Foundation
