Florida is seeing record highs of coronavirus cases as the pandemic stretches into its fifth month. For weeks, Governor Ron DeSantis resisted statewide closures and social distancing while the rural community of Immokalee raised concerns about the virus and requested more testing and PPE. Immokalee is home to thousands of migrant farmworkers, some whom are undocumented or on temporary guest worker visas. During the pandemic they’ve been deemed “essential” by the federal government. Now, Immokalee has the highest number of cases of any zip code in the state of Florida. On this episode of Into America, host Trymaine Lee talks to the Coalition of Immokalee Workers about their efforts to protect farmworkers in Florida and beyond, as the agricultural season shifts and the nation’s food supply is threatened. He talks to Gerardo Reyes Chávez, a leader of CIW who has been a farmworker in Mexico and Florida since he was 11 and Greg Asbed, who co-founded the Coalition in 1993. https://link.chtbl.com/obvkRMCh?sid=ep35» Subscribe to NBC News: http://nbcnews.to/SubscribeToNBC
