Farmworkers Bear the Brunt of California’s Housing Crisis

FRESNO, CALIFORNIA - MAY 17: Lourdes Cardenas, a farm worker originally from Culiacán, Mexico, tends to recently washed clothes on May 17, 2021 in Fresno, California. Cardenas has been a farm worker for 18 years after coming to the U.S. from Culiacán, Mexico. The clothing worn for work are washed daily due to the pesticides used in the farms. Since November 2019, there have been three bills introduced in Congress that would give undocumented food and farm workers as well as unauthorized immigrants, a path to citizenship or legal residency status. The Farm Workforce Modernization Act, which was passed by the House of Representatives in March with bipartisan support after first being introduced in November 2019, would give undocumented farm workers a path to legal residency and protection against detention and deportation. The passage of the bill comes after months of negotiations between members of both parties, United Farm Workers, UFW Foundation, Farmworker Justice, and various national growers organizations.
