Please help do your part by contacting our National Congressional Representatives and Senators. Below is a link with contact information for all the Idaho Congressional offices, both in Idaho and in Washington DC. Taking the time to make a phone call or sending an email to our national delegation helps to emphasize the need for immigration reform that ensures the continued health and viability of Idaho's dairy industry.

Also, below are informational brochures both in English and Spanish explaining the rights of US immigrants. Please read this document yourself and distribute copies to your employees. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact our offices at 208-736-1953 and talk with Bob Naerebout at extension 102 or Rick Naerebout at extension 101.

United Dairymen of Idaho


I think we all need to call these greedy, aiding and abetting crooks and let them know that not only is employing, aiding and abetting illegal aliens a treasonous act, but we don't appreciate them advertising their crimes.

"[We have] identified immigration reform that helps insure the continued health and viability of Idaho's dairy industry to be the top priority for staff and Board in the coming years. Through this direction, the Board has dedicated significant funds within its 2008 budget to be used in identifying and implementing a plan that will change the perception, elected officials and the public have, in reforming our national immigration policies."

Well, this sounds weasely! I didnt see an outline of this plan in the website anywhere - do you have a link to anything further about it, or to the association's policies/history concerning illegal workers?

Sounds like they are pushing for amnesty. What good will that do. They will have to pay their slave labor living wages and benefits. They dont want that.

If they cannot turn a profit without slave labor they shouldn't be in business.

Unfortunately, I don't. I'm sure they wanted to get the word out to their illegal alien constituency while exposing as little of themselves as possible.

ITA. It is distressing that corporate greed is distorting the fact that American work ethic is what built this country and made it great. It is also unfortunate that for so many American businesses money trumps everything.

A little more than a year ago this same man, Bob Naerebout, their exec. director, said almost this exact same thing.
[12/04/07] NAEREBOUT –“Our board has authorized an expenditure up to 350 thousand dollars to start working on forming a business coalition for responsible immigration reform. We feel its got to start some where and the only way you’re really going to change anything because our legislators right now are not making sound decisions for us, they’re making sound decisions based on whether they can get re-elected or not. What we have to do not only as the dairy industry but those of us concerned about the whole issue on immigration is to start changing public perception of the issue.”
Northwest Agriculture News Network - Ag News Radio

The new statement might mean that they've lined up their "business coalition," and now they're going to start hammering out a propaganda plan to "change perceptions."

I think it's creepy that the only two choices to contact are Bob Naerebout and Rick Naerebout.
