Trade Publication
The author offers opinions on the affects of U.S. immigration law on the landscaping industry. The H-2B program relating to guest workers is seen as vital to the industry and at the same time under threat from government policies designed to appeal to anti-immigration sentiment. The industry is urged to realize that they are involved in the issue of immigration reform, and so must defend their interests in that debate.
