"This bill would allow public schools and colleges to alter their schedules to allow for students to assist in the harvest of these labor intensive crops."
This is BS!!! Illegal aliens come to WA in droves in order to stay and qualify for DL's. Also, on 3-4% of illegal aliens work on the "harvest." They are not in these jobs, they are taking YOUR jobs instead!
As most of you may know, the state of WA is a sanctuary state. The area in which they speak, Yakima, is over run with illegal aliens and CRIME!!!
IT'S NOT THAT THEY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH ILLEGAL ALIENS TO DO THE JOBS IN THE FIELD THAT AMERICANS DON'T/WON'T DO, ILLEGAL ALIENS DON'T WANT TO DO THEM EITHER!!!! THEY WANT YOUR JOB!!!

What they fear is having to pay a decent wage. That they won't enjoy the profits that illegal workers provided them.

Your so right mate, it's these scumbag farmers. Paying pathetic wages that mean no honest working man can afford to fo the job, we have the same problem in the UK with farmers employing the peasants from eastern Europe to do the field work. It's the farmers I blame,greedy pigs who won't pay a fair wage

Farmers pay decent wages and sometimes offer housing and other amenities. Farmers need to harvest and have to get labor where they can find it. It's the lazy ass White boys, who are the problem. They've been raised by their Leftist thieving parents to believe they were born with a freeloading silver spoon in their mouthes. They're lazy, ill-bred, ill raised video game players and couch potatoes... afraid and incapable of a decent days labor and wages. Suicidal Western cultures have become incapable of teaching their children work ethics of any kind, replacing responsible mentoring with empowerment in masturbation, figuratively and not. This has led them to arrogance, stubbornness, deviance, drug use and wasted lives. They actually think they should be paid for posting their resultant angers on social websites. This in turn destines their economies to suffer and more Leftist thieves and top-down social engineers to gain the upper hand. What more can Socialists eventually offer those they destroy, than abortion?

Immigrant workers know how to work no matter what labor they choose to do. They are not resistant to learning like their White counterparts.

Bulls**t, farmers pay good wages, don't make me laugh, the reason white people won't do your slave labour us because we are lucky to have a choice. The migrant workers don't. These farmers allways trot out the lie of how white people are to Lazy to do this hard jib, the only reason they hire illegals is because they know that they're easily exploited and have no labour rights, if you paid a living wage there'd be no shortage of white people willing to do the work. It's not lazy whites it's greedy farmers.

Migrant workers have options. For instance, they work on storm chaser crews and work twice as hard as White counterparts, who've been indoctrinated with Socialist Union do nothing ethics and gravy train mentalities more inclined to set up rip-off good ole boy networks to extort consumers and those in distress. Migrant workers also work in factories across the U.S. and get paid the same wages as their lazy counterparts, who resent them and eventually "train" them to not produce just like the White good for nothings. Migrant farm workers are actually paid high wages and unlike the other jobs some do, where they have to pay taxes, etc., farm workers are usually under the table, thus having more expendable income. Socialist entitlement programs and government handouts give the lazy ass White couch potatoes something to eat while playing their video games well into their twenties. The Socialist scum in England have done the same.

Yes, a lot of people don't like working when it's 100 degrees Fahrenheit. But when they do, they do it. Have you ever wondered how all your vegetables are on your table?

They are taking your jobs? I would say the most qualified person should get the job; no matter where this person is from.

I don't know how we have become so patriotic, when at the end we are all connected, we are all sharing the same resources and the only way to keep our human race is to work all together.

Crime, crime is everywhere. Crime existed before "illegal aliens" came here.. isn't there a member of a past generation of yours that was an illegal alien?

I am proud to say that my parents are illegal and yes they work in the orchards when its 100 degrees and when its 32 degrees.

The economy depends on them because Americans don't want to take those jobs instead they complain that there are no jobs.
"With U.S. unemployment near 10 percent, many believe illegal immigrants are taking jobs from Americans. But when the United Farm Workers union launched a campaign offering to connect unemployed people to farm jobs, only three people accepted -- out of thousands of inquiries. "

Have you ever thought about the exploitation of illegal aliens?

"the passing of tough immigration laws in several states from around 2009 provides a view of actual outcomes, rather than theoretical predictions.
The state of Georgia passed immigration law HB 87 in 2011; this led to 50% of its agricultural produce being left to rot in the fields, at a cost to the state of more than $400m. Overall losses caused by the act were $1bn; it was estimated that the figure would become over $20bn if all the estimated 325,000 undocumented workers left Georgia. The cost to Alabama of its crackdown in June 2011 has been estimated at almost $11bn, with up to 80,000 unauthorised immigrant workers leaving the state. Lets help good illegal parents take care of our future generations, lets let them help us build stronger communities, and a stronger economy."

the take our jobs thing was a scam,i live in the central valley and they never said a thing except for that comic who fools allowed to show up on a fake job,come to think of it some low lives even let him speak infront of a group in office.

if you still believe they only do jobs citizens would do lets start from their.

so there is no citizens who are interns, reporters how about police officers,yes 2 have even been caught doing that.
how about housekeepers? landscapers carpenters,yes they have even ruin the wages in my trade.

now i know some folks are disabled and cannot do their own labor work and some like the filthy rich libs in parts of ca use illegal aliens as a status symbol. the list goes on every lie told about illegal aliens doing jobs citizens will not do has been debunked years ago.

fact for ya, only low life criminals will hire illegal aliens,there is no need for illegal aliens, and they do not help the economy, though they do drain every system they slither into,even their kids bring down the gpa of schools they have flooded.
