Immigration reform: What now? 

Few legislative issues have been so vexing to the processing industry, for so long, as immigration. More than 20 years have passed since the last time Congress successfully addressed the issue, and much has changed since then.

What can the industry do to make its priorities heard? And what should companies do about hiring in the meantime?
