Kansas Agricultural Interest Stir Immigration Policy
01/30/2012
 

 TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Facing pressure from large dairies and
feedlots desperate for workers, Kansas Agriculture Secretary Dale
Rodman is seeking a federal waiver that would allow companies to
hire illegal immigrants.
     Rodman has met several times with officials at the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security about launching a pilot program
that would place employers and illegal immigrants in a special
state-organized network. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that
the goal is to create a legal, straightforward manner of organizing
existing immigrant labor.
     So far Homeland Security has neither approved nor closed the
door on the idea.
     A coalition of business interests is preparing to tackle the
issue in Topeka. Details are expected to emerge this week about a
bill establishing the outline of a state-managed worker program.
