Sacramento nursery loses most of its staff in immigration crackdown

The attached link to News 10 in Sacramento is a good brief summary of what is happening on farms and other businesses across the country. The employers are doing the I-9 forms in good faith, but under audit the worker documents don’t stand-up so the employer loses the workforce at a critical time. This puts farms like this nursery, fruit & vegetable growers, dairy farms, sod-farms, and others who have time-critical work processes that can impact the entire year’s production--- or even force them OUT OF BUSINESS--- at unfair disadvantage versus some other businesses who, while hurt, may be able to reopen again in a few days and pick-up where they left off. The story of how/why agriculture is unique is one we have been trying to prove to Congress again and again.
