Granting H1B visas to aliens for seasonal farm worker jobs is actually quite regular and more common every year as farmers are unable to fill the jobs with residents. This is the most out of context story I've heard in a long time. Illegals are one thing but this particular issue is not even a political problem. Resident farm workers have disappeared and the growth of the H1B visa program has allowed farmers to have seasonal workers to continue harvesting crops. To insinuate gotcha politics with this is disingenuous and sleazy of Pantano.
