Rep. Darren Soto: American agriculture has depended on immigration for the last 150 years

In addition, I believe that we need to relook at the H-1 visa program, the farmworker program. We need to acknowledge the reality that we have had for the last 150 years of agriculture here in the United States, which is that we rely on many of our immigrants coming from Mexico and Central and South America to help with our agriculture. This has been going on for over a century.

—Rep. Darren Soto (D–FL)

Immigration, House Floor, June 7, 2017
