Kudos to The News Tribune’s wise opinion (editorial, 8-5) on the legalization of seasonal migration of farm labor. If we adopt this proposal, we all have so much to gain and, if not, so much to lose.
It reminds me of an analogy of heaven and hell. Both are an abundant feast laid before us. We are given utensils longer than our arms. In hell everyone chooses to feed themselves, and can’t, thereby starving. In heaven, everyone feeds each other and all are filled.
Let America’s bounteous crops be harvested by laborers ready and willing who will in turn be able to feed their families, all within the legal system.
Your recommendation is a win-win situation in this ugly, deadlocked debate. Let us, within the confines of the law, share the harvest.
