An in-depth Huffington Post article discussing agriculture’s labor crisis quotes AFBF President Zippy Duvall’s warning about the crossroads the U.S. has come to.
“We’re coming to a point where the American people need to make up their mind if they want to import their food or import their labor,” Duvall said in a media call organized earlier this month by the Partnership for a New American Economy.
The article, “U.S. Farmers Risk Losing Everything Because of Absurd Immigration Rule,” also cites an AFBF news release from this spring in which the organization cautioned that H-2A delays were fast approaching crisis proportions, resulting in devastating crop losses for many growers.
