Losing the family farm

Farmers Worried Over Immigration Debate, by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, filed at 5:18 a.m. ET

"CHAZY, N.Y. (AP) -- Shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the state labor department sent Donald Green III six Mexican migrant workers. He checked their documents and put them to work on his apple orchard.

But weeks later, amid heightened concerns over terrorism and border security, immigration officers caught the men and said they were in the country illegally.

If a bill passed by the U.S. House of Representatives becomes law, Green and farmers like him would also be lawbreakers. They would be charged with a crime and face thousands of dollars in fines".
