Immigration Law and Farmworkers:         

A community forum for understanding the way recently proposed immigration laws may impact the lives of area farmworkers.The legislation, which passed the House of Representatives, calls for  illegal immigrants to be guilty of a federal felony; and a 700 mile fence between Mexico and the United States.
