NC Farm bureau speaks out on immigration

This spring, the North Carolina Farm Bureau — one of the state’s largest agriculture organizations — released a video warning North Carolina’s lawmakers about the dangers of passing anti-immigrant legislation in our state.

As the Farmworker Advocacy Network states on their own blog, the message is clear: when agricultural states crack down on immigrant workers, there is a huge cost to farmers and the states’ economies overall.

Just look at what’s happening to the agriculture industries in Alabama and Georgia, two other states that have passed harsh anti-immigrant legislation in the past year.
