Owens disappointed with President’s immigration order

Congressman Bill Owens stated that he was disappointed that President Obama's plans for immigration reform, adding that it did not
specifically address the issue of farm laborers. Mr. Owens said that many North Country farms have workers who could benefit from the president's executive order, which says that immigrants who have lived illegally in the U.S. for more than five years can avoid being deported if their children are citizens or lawful permanent residents and if they pass background checks and pay fees. They also can get
work permits. Owens added that the president's actions were forced by Republican leaders & that leaders on the right have been dragging their feet on the immigration issue.
