The article discusses a survey conducted by Tarrance Group commissioned by Western Growers which showed that 70% of Americans will support a streamline and sensible program that will allow immigrant farmworkers to enter the U.S. and work in agriculture legally. Western Growers have floated a proposal that would address an improved guestworker program solely for agriculture without the citizenship factor. The agricultural community plans to float the proposal before the fall elections.
