Post #6
Video: migrant workers in school buses at NC Wal-Mart
Just got off the phone with a very nice & informative lady with Patterson Farms in China Grove,NC. It is verified the bus belongs to them, and on Sunday, did transport their workers to the Kannapolis Walmart for supplies. All workers are here through a federal government program ,H2A, where the farmer pays the federal government a fee and the workers are issued a temporary green card for the season. When harvest is over, the migrant workers (are supposed to) return to Mexico. This has been the farms practice for @ 20 years. So, these are Not illegal immigrants overflowing into NC from the border crisis.
Yeah, I didn't think the initial report looked right. These are the people we want and need, everything is legal.

That doesn't make sense. Go back and read my posts. And for your knowledge, I am a registered Democrat.

Then you better get your facts in order before deciding on how to vote. I am not a Dem or Repub so do not have to change a thing when I vote I just vote for whom I believe is the best for the Nation, State or local community, that has included Repubs, Dems, Libertarians and Green Party Candidates.

I am pretty much the same. I will admit that if I see a D or an R attached to the candidate I look hard for an alternative.

This is nothing new, and was certainly not started by Obama. This has been going on for a long time.

I remember the exact same thing happening 25+ years ago with illegal Cubans in Florida. They would detain illegals who arrived in southern Florida by the boatload, and then give them money to go shopping for clothing, etc. Later, they would get on welfare and eventually get Social Security checks when they were older, despite never having worked here.

Wet foot dry foot policy for Cuba. The second they set foot on our soil they became legal. I disagree with the policy and it should be ended.

I agree with this. Illegal is illegal.

What I don't like is when people like the OP act as if this is something new that Obama started. This kind of thing has been going on for decades.

There have been lots of other immigrant groups who've had the same done for them, like the Vietnamese, Laotians, Cambodians, Salvadorans, people from Kosovo, people from Montserrat, some Russians who get here by way of Israel, etc. They got here illegally, and then were immediately handed benefits.

Look into Honduran elections and Obama meddling.
