Long-Term Effects

Given the bill’s many shortcomings, it will likely result in increased, long-term labor shortages for the agricultural sector and increased liability for farmers. Ultimately, this is likely to lead to increased costs for farmers, who will be forced to pass on those increased costs to consumers. 

In addition, as more foreign farm workers become legal residents, many will leave the agricultural industry for other work opportunities. That would make the United States increasingly reliant on foreign sources of agricultural products.
