About "H2A Reform"
Face it, there a lot of agricultural jobs involving back-breaking labor in the hot sun that most American citizens are simply not willing to do. But there are thousands of immigrants or would-be immigrants to whom such work is a golden opportunity compared to what they have at home. Lacking sufficient workers, farmers in labor-intensive agriculture crops in the U.S. today face two bad choices: Either let the crops rot in the field, or hire illegal immigrants to do the work. They would like to hire the plentiful foreign workers who might come on an H-2A visa (for temporary agriculture work), but doing so is often too slow and costly. So slow, in fact, that the crops rot in the field while waiting for the H-2A process to finish and the legal workers to arrive. Instead, they turn to the multitude of illegal aliens willing to work immediately and without all the red tape.
This plan reduces restrictions on H-2A visas and gets the illegal workers a pathway to legalization so that they get into the system and become taxpaying members of society. Law enforcement can then focus on high risk immigrants who pose a threat of terrorism instead of wasting resources chasing after those who are just trying to pick tomatoes. Everyone wins.
