It’s an ongoing issue for the state’s Migrant Farm Workers. Unsafe and filthy housing provided by the growers they are working for.
There’s a bill making it’s way through the State Senate that would push for drastic changes.
McAllen State Senator Juan Hinojosa says he’s a former Migrant farm Worker and it amazes him that problems including no running water and shelters with no ventilation still persist.
He says the workers play a vital role in the State and they need to be protected.
The bill would push for stricter penalties for growers who violate the conditions for living quarters and more inspections.
