AMNESTY. As reported "The Heritage Foundation described the bill as a “clear cut example of amnesty,” warning that it "threatens the legal immigration system’s legitimacy and incentivizes aliens and farmers to ignore the legal immigration system in the future if it best serves their needs."

REPUBLICAN CO-SPONSORS:

Shame on these traitors! Each and every one of these so-called Republicans need to be called upon to immediately resign, else be primaried out of office.

President Trump needs to be clear that he will not sign AMNESTY, no matter how many traitorous Republicans vote for it.

Putting a million illegals into manual labor in the fields is the antithesis of “ work force modernization”

In addition to the Republicans co-sponsoring AMNESTY, altogether 34 Republican traitors voted in favor of AMNESTY.

I wish Free Traitors™ would leave the Republican Party, they are a teeny tiny minority of the electorate and really turn off patriots, nationalists and the general population. They give decent Republicans a bad name.

Been there done that:

The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA or the Simpson–Mazzoli Act) was passed by the 99th United States Congress and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan on November 6, 1986.

The Immigration Reform and Control Act altered U.S. immigration law, making it illegal to knowingly hire illegal immigrants and establishing financial and other penalties for companies that employed illegal immigrants. The act also legalized most illegal immigrants who had arrived in the country prior to January 1, 1982. Despite the passage of the act, the number of illegal immigrants in the United States rose from 5 million in 1986 to 11.1 in 2013

The rapist-murderer illegal alien,who left his victim dead in an Iowa cornfield, would have qualified for citizenship. He had worked at a dairy for 2 years.
Sh**-hole countries do not send us their finest citizens. Do rural dwellers really want to become a dumping ground for Central America’s criminals?

And there is no proof required that you’ve previously worked in ag, for ANY amount of time. Just your sworn statement.

Republicans, if you think that certain demographics are going to vote Republican just because you are nice to them, you are wrong.

“Do rural dwellers really want to become a dumping ground for Central America’s criminals?”

No! Wisconsin just busted a bunch of ILLEGALS from Guatemala that were running a sex trafficking ring in rural Wisconsin!

Republicans I the pocket of the Chamber of Commerce.

Conservatives should have amended this to also mandate of a $15/hr minimum wage. That would have killed it by using the democrat/RINO tactics against themselves.

If the workers put in 60 hrs/wk. and then go home I say let them in. They can sleep in the barns and warehouses. Brassaro.

Not 11.1 million.
That is a Pew number used by the media and politics.
The real number is 25-40 million. (Bear Sterns, Yale, other legitimate studies).

GOPe and dems love them some indentured slaves.

I personally have no problem with an ag worker plan to allow people in to work the farms during harvesting seasons but never as a path to permanent residency or citizenship. For work only them back to their homes wherever they are.
