(Photo: Andrew Lichtenstein / Corbis via Getty Images) Faced with a labor shortage caused by aggressive immigration enforcement and under pressure from the agriculture lobby, Congress is considering an expansion of the H-2A agricultural worker visa program. The proposed reform, eagerly supported by corporate interests like Trump's Mar-a-Lago, guarantees cheap imported labor beyond agricultural work to meat and poultry processing, forestry and logging, and fish farming, while massively undercutting the wages of US workers.

They were afraid that we would be persecuted, deported, and separated from one another, so they made sure I knew about the possible repercussions of being undocumented. But that doesn't mean I fully understood it -- I couldn't really comprehend the extent to which it would impact our lives practically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
