Colorado U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, along with a bipartisan group of his Senate colleagues, expressed concerns with how the H-2A Visa program–critical to providing labor for agricultural producers in Colorado and around the country–is being administered. In a letter led by Bennet to Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, the senators raised questions, brought to them by producers, about administrative delays resulting in labor shortages as well as a lack of uniformity in the application of H-2A regulations. The senators emphasized that while a more effectively administered H-2A program does not diminish the need for larger immigration reform, it would provide relief to producers with growing struggles around labor shortages.
