Feinstein: opposes "guest" worker scheme; supports agriculture industry; wants to finess immigration "reform"

Now that there's a title! California's taller, slightly not-as-dumb Senator Dianne Feinstein appears to have a bit of a nuanced position on immigration matters.

She opposes the "guest" worker schemes she's seen so far:

"I haven't seen a guest-worker program that I would vote for yet," she said. Feinstein believes it's unrealistic to expect someone to come from another country with a family and after three or six years of working here be willing to go back to their home country.

OK, on that she's doing great. However, she also wants the illegal aliens who are here now to stay. Her reason? To help the agriculture industry. Never mind all the downsides of supporting amnesty, just as long as we can (literally) save just pennies on the cost of lettuce.

And, she also wants to "finess" immigration "reform":

"I'm very concerned that a bill that is too big is going to move and that it's going to become a real lightning rod for enormous dissent... My view is to go at this cautiously."

In other words, they want to rip you off, but they don't want to tip you off.

On a side note, in the article Arnold Schwarzenegger utters a nebulous quote that generally seems to support Bush's "guest" worker scheme.

Agriculture is the most important thing in the world. It supports everything you use and is not easy like its said. It requires lots of hard work, many minds of intellegents, and you absoulutely don't know what can happen with agriculture. I think it needs to be supported more.

The "agricultural industry" is shaping up to be the portal through which all other low skill jobs flow. AgWork requires nearly zero skills, is on-going, and requires workers quickly. What this means is that the AgBusiness can truthfully say it needs so many people right now and bring them in. However, if they work a day or two and then move on to construction, hotel-restaurant work, etc. the solution becomes bring in still more AgWorkers - a constant flow.

In 1986, the Special AgWorkers section anticipated 400,000 applications for amnesty based in part on how many workers "should" be needed. It got 1.8 million and massive fraud.
