Get the facts on immigrants and the agricultural sector
Now is a great time to learn about the contributions by immigrants to the U.S. economy. With Congress returning from summer recess, immigration reform will be a top issue for members of the U.S. House of Representatives. These fact sheets, published by Americas Society/Council of the Americas and including information provided by the OAN, detail the many reasons why immigrants are critical for the agricultural sector and the resulting benefits across the economy overall. While many Americans may take for granted the food on their grocery shelves, immigrants play a critical role in getting food from our farms to our supermarkets.
