On May 9, the Senate Judiciary Committee will begin to consider S.744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act. Please urge your two U.S. Senators to support this vital legislation.

In what may be a once-in-a-generation opportunity, Congress is taking up legislation to modernize America's immigration system. The Senate is so far leading the effort, and begins formal consideration of the bill this Thursday, May 9. The bill would dramatically overhaul America's legal immigration system, address border security and employment eligibility verification, and provide a tough but fair process for an estimated 11 million unauthorized immigrants to earn legal status over 10 or more years.

ANLA, OFA, and our partners have worked very hard to secure an agreement in the Senate that provides horticulture companies with improved access to a legal labor force. We need your help now to encourage the U.S. Senate to continue its work.
