Sacramento, California - Assemblyman V. Manuel Pérez (D-Coachella) announced today that Assemblymember Linda Halderman (R-Fresno) will be serving as the joint author of AB 1544, the Agricultural Jobs & Industry Stabilization Act.
“Unauthorized workers contribute to the state’s economic vitality, yet federal inaction on immigration consigns them to the shadows and creates uncertainty for businesses that rely on them,” said Pérez. “That’s not good for our economy or for our communities. I am excited to be working together with Assemblymember Halderman to help lead the way by advancing policy that reflects our state’s economic and social realities.”

They are absolutely clueless on this. If they are truly worried about the State they would take into context what social services are being used by the families of these illegal "workers". The contribution these people give to society is out weighed by tax payer subsidies. The farm owners are the only real winners in this.

It is ridiculous to bring up farm workers in relation to illegal immigration anyway since there are unlimited visas for legal foreign AG workers already. Millions of Californians are out of work and yet they want to legalize illegal aliens to continue working jobs that should rightly belong to them.
