Way to go Congresswoman Hochul. Now we are starting to speak rational and logical with reality. Great idea.

I agree if we make it easier for workers to come here to work then we will cut down on illegals! Way to go Kathy! I am supprised there are not more comments on this after the other days.

Yeah, it is funny the Liberals on this web site had a lot to say about Agressive Illegal Immigration Laws and how we only have two options, either open our border completely or farmers will loss their crops. No comment on Kathy's purposed law. Amazing! We finally have someone make a rational statement and idea and it becomes mute.

Conservatives and libertarians had a lot to say about it, too, and you didn't seem to like those opinions too much, either, John.

As for this -- pretty non-controversial ... lighten the burden of bureaucracy for documented workers. Duh.

It's a great idea, now she just has to get it done. Not going to be easy.

Very true Howard, both conservatives and liberals alike did make irrational comments. However, I recall a certain liberal stating that we had only two options I stated above. I also, remember some liberals stating to my comment making it easier for farmers to hire immigrants legally wasn't an option and wouldn't work. This purpose law looks like it will help farmers file paperwork more efficient, productive and lessen the burden on them as well. Duh, must be a comment for the lack of option three (03).

Yeah, nothing is easy in Washington D.C. especially with our current elected officials.
