The prospects of comprehensive immigration reform look increasingly dim in Washington as U.S. Senate legislation encounters fierce resistance in the House

The debate over immigration reform looms large in California’s Central Valley, where farming is king. No industry relies more on immigrant labor (and wants to see immigration reform) more than agriculture.

Photographer Matt Black, a native of the Central Valley, has spent the past 15 years documenting the living and working conditions of farmworkers that make California the pantry of the United States.
