NYTimes Endorses AgJobs

Last week I posted on the introduction of AgJobs, a bill that marks a great step towards Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Saturday’s New York Times featured a great editorial on why AgJobs merits support:

In a climate of seemingly permanent stalemate and rancor over immigration, a bill that has the support of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and the advocacy group Farmworker Justice obviously has something going for it.

It’s a model compromise, mixing pro-business pragmatism with a commitment to protecting workers — future Americans — who do some of the country’s most vital yet difficult jobs. Whether AgJobs is enacted on its own or, more likely, folded into a larger immigration bill, it deserves a place at the table of comprehensive reform.

Please remember to:
