Earlier this week, a coalition of Wisconsin business and community leaders came together in Madison for the launch of the “Reason for Reform” campaign, highlighting the need for immigration reform and presenting data about the significant contributions immigrants make to the state’s economy.
The event was hosted by the Partnership for a New American Economy (NAE) and the Latino Chamber of Commerce of Dane County, and featured speakers from the Wisconsin Restaurant Association and the Dairy Business Association (DBA).
John Holevoet, Director of Governmental Affairs for DBA, sat down with AgWired following his presentation, where he discussed DBA’s involvement in the campaign and the many ways that immigration reform is necessary for the economic sustainability of Wisconsin’s 40 billion dollar dairy industry.
