Hurt a few agricultural corporations run by greedy criminals or hurt and endanger all American citizens. I vote for the latter.

Why do these corporations feel as though they deserve the right to have employees who are in this country illegally?

Pay a living wage. The taxpayers are forced to subsidize the low wages of migrant farmworkers with cash ad, WIC, food stamps, and medicaid. So that these corporations make more profit.

It's wrong. Level the playing field.

Many of these farmers feel as though they deserve the right to benefit from U.S. citizen taxpayer funded handouts.

Far too many of these U.S. citizen taxpayer funded farmers then thank us by knowingly and willing hiring illegal immigrant farm workers.

Just a bunch of criminals who profit by hiring criminals.

Like I said before, these farmers should be wearing plaid suspender equipped depends.

If they arrest all of the "farmers" who sit on the board of directors of the "farms" who are hiring illegal aliens and put them to work picking crops for those that do not hire illegal aliens the problem will be solved.
