Yep, another bait and switch! Potential E-Verify Deal Would Give Legal Status to Farmworkers Congressional Democrats hope to broker a deal with Republicans that would grant legal status to farmworkers currently in the country illegally but would require employers to verify the immigration status of all future hires. This all sounds familiar. Amnesty now, and enforcement later, this time we pinky swear! Hopefully Republicans will vote against this amnesty bill, but it's a crapshoot since so many support amnesty.
