Farmworker justice groups are split in terms of supporting or opposing this new piece of legislation that would provide a path to citizenship for some undocumented workers, mandate farmers electronically verify worker legal status, and make changes to the H-2A guestworker program. In this episode, California writer and photojournalist David Bacon (author of In the Fields of the North) joins host Lisa Held to talk about his reporting on the proposed bill and how the history of farm workforce programs in the US provides insight into the future.
