In this March 5, 2009 file photo, an immigrant worker milks cows at a dairy farm in Fairfield, Vt. Congressmen Peter Welch of Vermont and Bill Owens of New York plan to announce legislation Tuesday, April 9, 2013 that they say will help ensure a stable workforce for Vermont and New York dairy farmers. Dairy farmers are ineligible for a federal agriculture visa program so many rely on immigrant farm workers who are in the country illegally. (AP Photo/Toby Talbot)
