Labor unions helped end the Bracero Program for migrant Mexican farm workers in the mid 1960's. It was originally devised as a guest worker program during WWII but successfully ran under US Law until 1964 when the union won a 40% worker pay increase for mostly Filipino grape pickers after convincing Pres Kennedy to end the program, eliminating low labor cost options for farmers. This UFW grape victory ushered in a 15-year golden era for US farm workers that ended with rising illegal migration in the 1980s and 1990s.

Illegals aren't immigrants they are in fact CRIMINALS!

Great comment impact. Remember the first amendment provides you that right. Do liberals believe all amendments were created equally? Methinks not.

NOW IS THE TIME--for me to PIMP more Democrat votes by giving AMNESTY to ILLEGALS.

Come on, CALL IT WHAT IT IS, AMNESTY, not "Immigration Reform".

You MUST secure the borders FIRST.

If illegals know that they are going to get amnesty in say 6 months time period, why WON'T the borders be overrun with illegals IMMEDIATELY?

Then the number becomes 15 ro 20 million. Why WAIT and go through LEGAL immigration???

Sneak over NOW and wait 6 months, you get a FREE PASS!!!!!
