A case for embracing immigrants from Trump Country

Congress is seeking a last-minute bipartisan deal on immigration reform. John Avlon: Ohio farmers consider a deal for migrant farm laborers “a matter of national security”. Avlon argues that the U.S. is beginning to buy more food products than it sells. Americans aren’t as willing to work in jobs requiring strenuous manual labor, Jones writes. Farmers are increasingly selling their land to wind and solar companies, he says.

A bipartisan immigration fix would be more meaningful, Jones argues. The U.S. has a responsibility to vet people seeking to enter.
