The Kansas Livestock Association says President Biden needs to extend permits to long-term migrant workers to address the labor crisis.

CEO Matt Teagarden says the livestock industry is suffering from shortages. “Many ag-related jobs in our state are unfilled. When farmers and ranchers don’t have workers to help care for their livestock or harvest their crops, we produce less and prices go up.”

During a response to the State of the Union address, hosted by the American Business Immigration Coalition, Teagarden said the issue isn’t just about food costs and inflation.
