The House bill would create 20,000 three-year H-2A visas permitting year-round work, and provide a path to citizenship for approximately one million farmworkers currently living in the U.S. illegally, according to the WSJ. Currently, H-2A visas only allow workers to remain in the country for up to 10 months, which has caused issues for some farms, such as dairy farms, that require workers year-round.

I saw this coming years ago. Large industrial farming taking over from the family farmers have bribed all the Washington slime for some time and now they want payback. Bend over America they're about to shove some more shit up our asses.ReplyDelete
Why the rush?ReplyDelete
The Republicans are still coming. January's not that big a farming month. The bolshevik rules will be canceled before March. Pinkie swear!
Okay you want legal status for farm workers, that’s what the visa is for.ReplyDelete
Go home, apply for citizenship and go through what everyone else does.
No worries, when we the people vote the GOP back in in 2024 surely they will deport all these crimmigrants..........ReplyDelete
" Crimmigrants." A new one. Good.Delete
Sorry. If we can't overturn AZ blatant election fraud in 2022, there is no hope for 2024. Love or hate Trump, he showed how corrupt the election system is from the state legislatures down to the county vote counters. And we have had political prisoners for 2 years without a bond hearing. GOP leaders are fucked up.Delete
Only politicians-with NO work experience- would consider this bill. Working people know better.ReplyDelete
......groups are RACING to pass a bill.........ReplyDelete
That alone tells us what we need to know.
This corrupt administration's just letting them in anyway.
