Terry Entzminger needs nearly 30 employees to operate his 850-head dairy with corresponding grain farm About a third of his workforce comes from his family and a third from locals For the other third he relies on foreign labor from a variety of sources The H2A program the Hegers use doesn’t work well for Entzminger H2A he explains is for seasonal work and milking cows "is the same on Christmas Day as it is on the Fourth of July" He’s had people on H2A visas work on the grain side of his operation but on the dairy side he relies on other programsJ1 visas allow people to come to the US as part of work-and-study-based exchange visitor programs and TN visas a part of the North American Free Trade Agreement allow professionals in certain occupations from Canada and Mexico to come to the US to work in prearranged business activitiesEntzminger has had veterinarians or veterinarians in training among other professionals come to work for him while on J1 or TN visas While they may not be qualified to become a veterinarian in the US due to different requirements they are highly qualified to work on the dairy pulling or treating calves and getting IVs started Entzminger says They get valuable experience and Entzminger gets qualified and reliable labor"They play an important role" he says "It’s your night shift It’s your 2 am"He’s heard that 78 percent of dairy products use foreign labor to get to market"We count on foreign labor" he says Changes to the nation’s immigration program that would make it harder for agricultural workers to come here "would cripple the dairy industry"Outside of worker visa programs Entzminger says he has had a substantial number of foreign-born employees who come looking for jobs His bookkeeper checks their paperwork to make sure everything is in order and they go to work Many such employees have stayed with him for yearsMore South African workersWhile Mexico supplies by far the largest number of workers to fill the US needs a growing number come from South Africa The number of South Africans coming to the US under H2A visas has gone from zero in 1997 to 2335 in 2016Weygandt says farming in South Africa is a hard way to make a living both because of the intense manual labor and the lingering problems with racism"There’s not really an easy future for them in farming" he saysFor those who can afford the process coming to the US can be a way to make "easy money" Weygandt explains that the exchange rate means money made in the US is worth more than 12 times as much in South AfricaHeger says bringing South African workers to the US has nothing to do with finding cheap labor Her farm pays at least the lowest allowable rate $1379 in North Dakota but often pays far more than that if they get the same workers back year after year with invaluable knowledge and experience Plus the Hegers have to pay to get their workers here and back and for their living expensesProblems to addressWhile many parts of the work visa programs are working there are problems that those in agriculture wish could be addressedHeger would like to see more flexibility in the H2A program including allowing workers to stay in the US longer allowing multi-year contracts allowing employees to work for multiple employers and allowing workers to move among statesWeygandt wishes the process cost less For South Africans it’s often the "rich" farmers who can come to the US while it’s cost prohibitive for some of the poorer farmers who need the workEntzminger would be in favor of a "blue card" proposal in which immigrant workers who show that they are working paying taxes and staying out of trouble would have legal status to stay in the USEntzminger says more Americans should be thanking the people who come to this country to work on farms and ranches rather than shaming them"We should be more grateful and far less ‘shame on you’" he saysWhile foreign laborers have become known for their work ethic which is part of the reason they find work on US farms Entzminger says his employees have substantial smarts as well"If we’d build universities instead of a wall we’d all be better off" he saysHeger advises anyone considering hiring foreign labor to find someone who already is and get some tips on making it work"It’s not something that everybody does well" she says There are cultural barriers and language barriers that can make such arrangements difficultBut she says the people who come to work in agriculture are not looking to make "a quick buck and go home" Rather they are coming to learn and in doing so invest time and money in local communities"They’re here to contribute" she says "Not just to take away from those who live here"No fewer than eleven persons were feared dead in Omoku

Attorney General Aramis Ayala has not broken any laws with her decision of not seeking the death penalty on murder cases that she will prosecute. Anyone has the right to opine but accusations need to be proven. Please go to Florida State book of laws and prove to the people of Florida that her decision is unlawful. Her only mistake was to go public with her plans. Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Reply I would not worry about it Greg unless you are hoping to be a member of the electoral college, LOL. I am not sure who you are referring to in the Democrat party or what issues you are referring to, but I highly suspect it is AA the attorney general who is apparently enjoying her new found fame and challenging the laws of Florida. I read everyday where the Democrat party, generally speaking, supports her, but I don’t! Is there a litmus test to be a Democrat?OpinionBy Greg Jackson, Esq.Greg JacksonQuestion: Did anyone get the memo stating that when you register with a political party you must leave your personal beliefs, morals, common sense and opinions at the door? Well, many Democrats, such as myself, have learned that if you do not agree with the direction, leadership or agenda of the party, it is best that you keep quiet or risk being ostracized by party hardliners who oftentimes are found in leadership at the local level. If you voice an opinion that differs from the party’s, no matter if it is based on credible evidence or common sense, you may even be considered “not-a-real-Democrat.” I have learned that when weak or unethical Democrats, who are supported by party “insiders,” run for elected office, you better support them even if their moral and/or ethical shortcomings conflict with your own. If you opt, instead to stand on principal, there is a very good likelihood that you will be considered a troublemaker or even worse marked as a Republican, which in Democrat-speak is next to the worst thing on the planet Earth. Admittedly, the scenarios I am describing are typically based on the actions of the hardcore members of the party. For the most part, Democrats (conservative, moderate, etc.) do not agree with everything the party stands for and will seek common ground with members of other parties to get things done. These efforts to work together are actually very healthy for the future growth of the party. However, the unfortunate reality is that for the most part, the hardcore element of the party is typically the most vocal and garner the most attention. (NOTE: I fully recognize that these same sentiments are felt in the Republican, Libertarian, Green Parties, etc.).As the political landscape changes in Orange County, it is undeniable that the number of Republican voters is declining while Democratic voters’ numbers are inching up slightly. That for the most part is due to the Democratic party spending considerably more time with voter registration. These efforts, help to “pack-the-field” with more democratic minded voters who, when called upon, for the most part will go to the polls and vote for a Democrat. However, what cannot be ignored is that the fastest growing political party in Orange County and across the State is arguably N.P.A., which stands for Non-Party Affiliates. It appears that as party loyalist seek to make it mandatory for its members to blindly follow but not question, people are looking to go to a party where they can speak and vote freely.What parties seem to forget is that politics is merely a process, not a definition of who we are as individuals. In my experience, when people are asked about the things that are most important to them, the order is typically: God, family, country, etc. If they were to become robots of a political party, the list would be: party affiliation, party agenda, party elected officials, and I think you get where I am going. My point is this, first and foremost, in the context of political importance, we are Americans. Our votes, focus and support should, and would be better spent, going with those candidates and ideas that will keep our country at the top of the list of being the greatest country ever to be in existence. Next, parties need to understand that constructive disagreements help us to all become stronger, as a party and as a nation. In the midst of disagreement there is always a happy median, a place where we can work together to better our communities. Next, speaking against the position of a candidate or elected official in your own party is actually healthy and can result in better leadership and support. That is because the ability to recognize shortcomings and honestly addressing those things lends credibility to the party. Instead of being seen as a robot or puppet, you will be viewed as a fair-minded person people can trust to give honest assessments and opinions. Interestingly, Community leaders are always encouraging people “if you see something, say something.” That same concept should be encouraged in politics to help ensure that we get candidates and elected officials who will best serve our communities and collective interest, which is important to the survival and betterment of our nationGreg Jackson is a past Assistant Attorney General for the State of Florida, military veteran, current Orange County District 2 Representative on the Board of Zoning Adjustments, and General Counsel for the Community Redevelopment Agency.
