Immigration reform is an issue of great importance to many in agriculture, especially to Nebraska Cattlemen. Due to needed updates in current immigration laws and that the beef industry relies on immigrants as a substantial portion of its labor force, Nebraska Cattlemen supports federal and state immigration reform.
On April 10, LR399 introduced by Sen. John Wightman, a resolution which calls upon Congress to enact comprehensive immigration reform, was passed. Nebraska Cattlemen was pleased with the passage of LR 399 and the support of the following Nebraska state senators: Greg Adams, Brad Ashford, Kathy Campbell, Tanya Cook, Sue Crawford, Mike Gloor, Ken Haar, Tom Hansen, John Harms, Burke Harr, Sara Howard, Rick Kolowski, Steve Lathrop, Amanda McGill, Heath Mello, Jeremy Nordquist, Paul Schumacher, Kate Sullivan, Norm Wallman, and John Wightman.
The Nebraska Cattlemen association serves as the representative for the state’s beef cattle industry and represents professional cattle breeders, ranchers and feeders, as well as county and local cattlemen’s associations. Headquarters are in Lincoln and a second office in Lakeside serves cattlemen in western Nebraska.
