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.
