On 9/24 Stephen Colbert testified in Congress to support resolving the issue of illegal immigrants working on US farms.
Stephen Colbert is a television personality most popularly known for his show "The Colbert Report" on Comedy Central, a satirical news show.
I noticed several correlations to material we have covered in class:
-Illegal farm workers (the subject)
-The growing number of obese Americans
-Farms relocating outside of the U.S.
-Work conditions for farm employees
-Low wages of farm employees
I believe he had the right idea about giving illegal immigrants thier green cards. If they have rights then perhaps a chain reaction can start that will eventually lead to a more safe agricultural system. He highlights this issue with an excellent point regarding thier rights. This point speaks to a root cause of our faulted agribusiness.
