Senator Marshall Slams the Biden Administration on Proposed New Rule for Temporary Farm Workers

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D., slammed the Biden Administration following the announcement of their proposed new rule for temporary farm workers. The Department of Labor’s proposed changes to the H-2A Visa program would add costly and burdensome requirements to Kansas agribusiness owners who use the program.

“At a time when our nation’s agriculture industry faces a severe labor crisis, this proposed rule by the Biden Administration makes it difficult and costly for our Ag businesses to keep and recruit H2A visa holders. We need substantial and productive reforms to our nation’s immigration policy, not government regulations that further penalize hard-working farmers and ranchers,” Senator Marshall said.
