My charity contributions go to numbers.usa and wounded veteran's website and a Jewish organization....how's that? all are tax deductible. Bet you yourself wouldn't make a donation to the charity you're promoting.....KNOW WHY? because you pay NO INCOME TAX! LOSER! You will never be accepted with such arrogant demands.

Farm workers Unions need workers because the migrant's that used to come here on Temporary Visa's, then go home seasonally, have decided to stay and overstay those permit's. They've moved to the Cities and blended in with the other illegals. So the old migrant farm workers don't want to pick for beans anymore. They want better wages, legality, and Federal right's. But we just cannot give everyone a pass because they refused to obey the law. Congress and Farm Workers will never meet minds, because they were hired because they worked cheaply. If they are forced to pay a living wage, legal Americans will take those job's.

So the farm worker's union does not want legal foreign workers to take the jobs that illegals currently are doing. Once of course that the illegals are made legal they will no longer want to work on the farms for low wages and the agricultural corporations will not want to pay more. Since the number of legal temporary workers will be limited and the now legalized workers will not do the work they will be replaced with the next wave of illegals and the farm workers union will again resist any effort to stop the use of illegal workers as they have been doing for the last 30 years.
History repeats itself as these fools do the same thing over and over expecting different results. Amnesty for 2 million illegal aliens brought 20 million more illegal aliens. Amnesty for 20 million illegal aliens will bring 200 million more.
