ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the need of the agriculture industry in the U.S. to pass immigration reform proposals before the presidential election year. It discusses that the current legislation, such as the H2A program, is not workable and satisfies only a small percentage of the agriculture workforce. It states that the current laws no longer meet the changing demands while problems worsen due to the aging immigrant work force and the difficulty in finding younger workers willing to do hard labor.
