This paper looks at the development of U.S. immigration policy since 1965. In attempts to lower the number of immigrants from the southern border, Congress and the Executive branch have passed immigration measures that bolster illegal immigration. Furthermore, these policies have created an agricultural sector that is reliant on illegal migrant workers. However, recent changes in immigrant characteristics and attitudes are negatively impacting farmers. Going forward, temporary migrant worker programs must be expanded and improved upon to ensure the health of the agricultural industry.
