Trump on Agriculture and Ag Regulations
President Trump has signed two new executive actions to boost immigration enforcement, including an order to begin construction of the promised wall, but that has some in the farming sector on edge because of the industry's reliance on foreign labor.
American Farm Bureau's Kristi Boswell, it's creating some anxiety because much of the labor force that picks the fruits, vegetables and other crops are undocumented and in danger of being deported.
During much of the Obama administration, it was one of the worst kept secrets in farm country that many saw regulations as agriculture's longest four-letter word.
Action taken Monday by President Trump might address some of that concern when he signed an executive order aimed at regulatory reform efforts.
Drawing most of the attention is a new policy stating that for every new regulation put forward, two old regulations must be withdrawn.
