And OK is worse off as a result. Rainbow parades. Legalized drugs (with a corresponding increase in addicts living on the streets.)
And numerous other liberal, anti civilization, anti common sense issues. Too many to list.
It's a travesty. And a tragedy.
*** REPUB CHEAP LABOR EXPRESS ***
Same in Texas. There was a sudden flood of them into our neighborhood a decade ago bringing their ridiculous lib ideas with them.
I seriously don't understand why ANYONE signed on for this bill that requires a federal crime to have been committed for SIX MONTHS.
Actually, if these people are on work visas and are going home after the season and have been doing that for years, I have no problem with them getting green cards and having a future path to citizenship. These are the people doing this legally.
For illegals, no way no how they should they be allowed to apply for green cards.
Lets hope Pres. Trump puts the full package out there. This should be part of a Comprehensive Immigration Enforcement bill, missing since 1987 ONE TIME amnesty. The List of Comprehensive Immigration Enforcement, missing since 1987 goes like this -
1) southern barrier;
2) require eVerify to hire;
3) end all chain migration;
4) birthright per Minor v. Happersett (plural parents);
5) end work visas;
6) 10-year moratorium on all new applications for citizenship (40 years to allow workplace automation effects on downsizing population);
7) Set up an illegal aliens victim restitution fund.
Enactment of these provisions will motivate illegal aliens to SELF-deport, and remove colonizadors from our welfare rolls.
Legalized slaves is all this is. It allows farmers to have slave labor without fear.
They don’t live in border areas as I do. They have no clue to the problems we see on a daily basis.
“Have to have worked for past 10 years in agricultural fields of the USA & then must work for 4 more years doing same”.
Since so many of them were paid cash & were never on the records of the various agricultural entities in the USA, how will they prove that?
How can they prove they WILL WORK for another 4 years in agricultural entities?
The paperwork & proving such actions will be monumental.
I see a nightmare for all involved.
IF a farmer HAS to prove they worked there for the past 10 years, wouldn’t that farmer be putting themselves in jeopardy for hiring a person they were NOT supposed to HIRE??? I wouldn’t do that & risk losing my farm/ranch over this.
Veto this PDJT. We do not need any more grass crawling illegal invaders in our country.
With 2020 elections coming, the RINOs want the agro-industrial complex’ political donations, more than they want the respect of grass roots Republicans on the issue of amnesty. They will even tag along with the Dims claiming its about “the farmers”, yet the “farm vote” is 100% about subsidzing an entire industry.
The truth is that among those farmers that have depended the least on cheap legal and illegal immigrant labor, they are probably the most modern farms in the world. Unfortunately the largest of them also reap the most from the direct and indirect farm subsidies Congress doles out.
They don’t need the farm labor so much, but they will join with the immigrant labor loving farmers that do in pushing the amnesty-subsidy to the other farmers. That will create a new and never ending dependency, that will have to keep being renewed, as the children of the amnestied labor will not gravitate to farm labor after they complete their education, and new generations of amnestied-labor will have to be approved, again and again.
That is how the “liberal” programs work. They CREATE dependencies that have to be renewed, ad infinitum. Why? Because it is not about “solving problems”. It’s about creating and sustaining blocks of assured political donations and political dependents.
When trying to remind RINOs of this, they will nod in agreement, and then turn and vote for what they know works for the Dims, hoping it works for them too.
Let’s be honest. It’s not entirely different than Trump himself trying to buy some of the farm vote with continued support for the wasteful and wated ethanol subsidies.
We see where their priorities are.
Has the senate even looked at this yet?
Worthless RINOS helping to elect more future Democrats and screw American labor. Devin Nunes on top?
The key point of the legislation is that these are illegal aliens. This has nothing to do with people here legally.
What are the chances this passes in the Senate?
It encourages cheap illegal manual labor for greedsters importing future Democrats, instead of mechanizing farm operations where they can use John Deere etc made in USA equipment to do the job.
Sadly, high. And Trump likely would sign.
I have spent some time in the agricultural areas of the Delmarva Peninsula. A lot of workers are needed for things like picking tomatoes, cleaning chickens for Tysons, and other grunt labor. Apparently this bill would allow the workers to seek jobs in non agricultural work once they had the green card. There are relatively few younger US workers to do these jobs. Every summer in Chincoteague, VA, a number of young Russian women come to town to work in the local supermarkets and I suspect the hotels. One Chincoteague construction business owner complained he had trouble getting his native born workers to do good and persistent work. He said, “Just give me a good crew of workers from El Salvador, I’ll take them any time. They are not afraid of hard work.”
