Statement by the President on the Settlement in the Black Farmers Lawsuit against USDA

Barack Obama's White House Presidential Office (D) posted a Press Release on February 18, 2010 | 3:51 pm - Original Item - Comments (View)

“My Administration is dedicated to ensuring that federal agencies treat all our citizens fairly, and the settlement in the Pigford case reflects that commitment.  I applaud Secretary Vilsack for his efforts to modernize operations at the USDA, as well as the work of the Justice Department in bringing these long-ignored claims of African American farmers to a rightful conclusion.  I look forward to a swift resolution to this issue, so that the families affected can move on with their lives."
