US Farmers Back Immigration Reform


Immigration reform is expected to be back on the agenda in the new U.S. Congress, after an election in which voters with Hispanic roots decisively supported President Obama's bid for a second term. Most of the U.S. farm workforce is made up of illegal Latino immigrants, despite a guest-worker program that would allow them to enter and work in the U.S. legally. But farmers say that system is broken. VOA’s Steve Baragona has a look.
