One of the conservative nuts that bombards my email with crazy right wing spam finally sent me some good news. This is not to say that all conservatives are crazy, but something happens when you give one an email account and broadband.
LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce, the Poultry Federation and Arkansas Farm Bureau have announced support for the pending comprehensive immigration reform legislation that is currently in front of the United States Senate, citing the additional border security, increased and enhanced workplace enforcement, and a workable guest worker program as critical components of the current legislation.
The three organizations have lobbied Sens. Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor on the topic, identifying the critical nature of any immigration reform and the need to get something passed this year, and hope that both senators will vote for the bill.
“Everyone, I believe, is in agreement that the status-quo is not working. It is time to act, and to get something passed, for the security of our country and for the legal access to immigrant workers.”
Harvel says the State Chamber, Poultry Federation and Farm Bureau’s unified stance on the immigration issue is apolitical, because it is in the best interest of all Arkansans.
