VISA GLITCH STRAINS U.S. FARMS

A computer failure has prevented the U.S. from issuing thousands of temporary and immigrant visas since June 9, leaving agricultural workers stranded at the border just as the summer harvest gets underway. “It’s a crisis,” said Jason Resnick, general counsel for the Western Growers Association, which represents farmers in California, Arizona and Colorado. He said more than 1,000 workers who expected H-2A agricultural visas are stuck on the Mexican side of the border, as reported by the Wall Street Journal.
