Dairy Industry Rips Risch, Crapo

Idaho's dairy industry is applauding the Senate passage of bipartisan immigration reform legislation - and scolding Idaho's two senators for voting against it. “This legislation, should it become law, will greatly assist the largest industry in Idaho with the ability to grow and increase productivity,” said Brent Olmstead, director of Milk Producers of Idaho. “We are disappointed that Idaho’s two senators chose to not join in the bipartisan effort to fix the current immigration system. We have been and will continue to work with the Idaho delegation in the House to keep the current momentum on immigration reform going”/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: P'haps Crapo & Risch should pay more attention to an Idaho industry affected by immigration reform than the ideologues within the Republican Party?
