Immigration Reform and the Guest Worker Program

Hosted by

As Congress debates immigration reform, one possible sticking point is a new look for the guest worker program. Many farmers say the current, H-2A visa system involves so much red tape they have no choice but to hire undocumented labor. At the same time, American workers have won court orders against illegal discrimination and poor working conditions.
