USDA, Guatemala and H-2A

08/01/2019

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Dr. Sonny Perdue has commented on the agreement between the Department of Labor and the Government of Guatemala relating to the H-2A visa program. In an August 1st press release he stated, “Our farmers and ranchers want to obey immigration law. This move by the United States and Guatemala will allow for greater cooperation and will safeguard against disturbances in the H-2A visa program by protecting workers from illegal recruitment activity, providing our farmers with a stable, legal workforce” He added “the signing of this agreement with Guatemala further solidifies our partnership and engagement with our neighbors and commitment to solving the humanitarian crisis at our southern border.”
