New immigration reform ad released

Aug. 20, 2014 | 0 comments

NEW YORK, NY

The Partnership for a New American Economy and the American Farm Bureau Federation released a new ad calling on Congress to pass immigration reform now. The ad features Bernie Thiel, a Texas farmer who has had to destroy some of his own crops for two years in a row because he has been unable to find the workers he needs to harvest.

"A farmer should never have to destroy a crop due to the lack of an adequate labor force," said American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman. "If that situation doesn't illustrate the clear need for agricultural labor reform, I'm not sure what will. Ultimately, as a nation we will decide whether we import our labor or import our food. While our nation's current political climate makes comprehensive reform a challenge, we are determined that ensuring an adequate farm workforce and securing our borders are compatible goals that are worthy of continued pursuit."

"This ad sends a clear message to Congress — if you don't fix our broken immigration system, it's American farms that will feel the pain," said John Feinblatt, chairman of the Partnership for a New American Economy. "Our farmers are struggling to do their jobs because they don't have the workers they need. So while Congress does nothing to address agriculture labor shortages, farms fail, food rots, and we import more produce from overseas."

This ad is part of the Partnership's ad campaign, launched in April to highlight the need for immigration reform across broad sectors of the economy. The Partnership's first ad, which showcases immigrant inventions, can be viewed at www.immigrantmade.org.

The Partnership for a New American Economy brings together more than 500 Republican, Democratic and Independent mayors and business leaders who support immigration reforms that will help create jobs for Americans today.

The Partnership's members include mayors of more than 35 million people nationwide and business leaders of companies that generate more than $1.5 trillion and employ more than 4 million people across all sectors of the economy, from Agriculture to Aerospace, Hospitality to High Tech and Media to Manufacturing.

Partnership members understand that immigration is essential to maintaining the productive, diverse and flexible workforce that America needs to ensure prosperity over the coming generations. Learn more at www.RenewOurEconomy.org.
