Immigration Reform

The Idaho Dairymen’s Association has long supported and advocated for responsible immigration reform. Our position is rooted in the belief that immigration policies must be fiscally and morally sound for Idaho and our country, and include support of the following:

  • Legal status for existing agricultural workers and their immediate family
  • Access to a worker visa program for year round agricultural employers
  • Verification of legal status of workers is the responsibility of the US government, not employers

The success and growth of Idaho’s dairy industry is not achievable without the contributions of the talented, predominantly Hispanic workforce who has toiled beside Idaho’s dairy farm families for generations.
