As we continue to grow as a nation of immigrants, we must struggle to understand the full context of agricultural workers. Legacy and next the consequences of living in a divided society has left us with information incomplete, inaccurate and misleading information about the history, wins and contributions of different groups in our society. As a nation built on the sacrifices of many different groups of immigrants, we should keep in mind that the faces of immigrants have changed, the spirit of their pioneering, courage, determination, the ability to flourish, and dreams of providing a better future for their children remains the same.

Due to its geographic diversity and natural resource abundance, the United States is one of the world’s leading agricultural producers and suppliers. Indeed, the $374 billion U.S. agriculture sector is critical to the U.S. economy, but its health depends on a functioning immigration system. From migrant workers on farms, to foreign-born scientists at agribusiness and agricultural research centers, immigrant labor is important for U.S. agriculture, and analysts predict that in the absence of immigration reform, the growth of the entire sector may stall.
