The National Milk Producers Federation says dairy farmers need a major fix of current immigration laws, given the importance of foreign workers to agriculture.

With immigration policy a hot topic in Washington, D.C., the dairy industry is hopeful meaningful reforms will be achieved.

Chris Galen with the National Milk Producers Federation says immigration reform is crucial to the U.S. dairy system, because dairy farmers need a stable workforce.

And, he says the current discussions present an opportunity that agriculture does not want to miss to make valuable immigration reforms for farmers.

Congress is currently negotiating on DACA, as part of the overall budget.
