— Why Congress Should Reject Amnesty for Illegal Agricultural Workers – Daren Bakst
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The amnesty plan starts by creating something called “certified agricultural worker status.” If you are working in agriculture and want to stay in the U.S., you are much better off if you are illegally in the country, as opposed to the “suckers” who decided to follow the law. This is because the new certified agricultural-worker status is generally only available to illegal agricultural workers. Once illegal agricultural workers secure certified agricultural worker status, they can stay in the country for at least 5-1/2 years and have begun their pathway to citizenship. It’s important to recognize that the amnesty provisions are so extreme that they don’t simply allow these illegal workers to change to H-2A status like legal agricultural workers currently in the country. No, they actually get a lot more than that through this special pathway. Certified agricultural workers can easily renew this special new status on an indefinite basis. They are also eligible to be lawful permanent residents (i.e., get their green cards) in a fairly quick manner.)
