Iowa Farmers Union Praises Biden Action on Climate, Immigration
Iowa Ag Connection - 01/22/2021

In his first hours as president, Joe Biden issued a flurry of executive orders and policy proposals covering a wide range of issues.

Of particular interest to the Farmers Union is Biden's decision to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement. The organization, which has long advocated aggressive climate mitigation, called the previous administration's move to withdraw from the pact a "shameful mistake." It comes as a great relief that the Biden administration has prioritized this issue on day one.

Iowa Farmers Union (IFU) was similarly pleased by the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021, a comprehensive immigration plan that offers undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship, fast-tracking "Dreamers" as well as farm workers and other essential workers. This approach aligns with Farmers Union's official immigration policy, which supports bipartisan efforts that address the needs of businesses while protecting the interests of workers.

In a statement, IFU President Aaron Lehman applauded both efforts, indicating that they set an encouraging tone for the next four years:
