About that first Immigration bill Bernie voted against.... [View all]

Maybe now you will understand why.
He went there & made sure the next time the comprehensive immigration bill went to the floor of the Senate - these people were not forgotten.

I dare you to watch.... or you could continue to ignore the truth and point fingers at Bernie trying to make him look bad when he was in fact fighting for the new face of slave labor.

Working families of Immokalee, Florida, have been fighting exploitation by the agricultural industry. "I will always fight. As long as I can see my children happy and well, I will continue fighting to provide them with the best. My children are the motor that drives my life,” Udelia says.

In 2008, Bernie traveled to Immokalee and met with migrant workers who were being ruthlessly exploited. He told the story to Congress in the hopes of improving their condition, and succeeded. But how many more Immokalees are there? How many fields or factories are there? We have to ask ourselves ‘who benefits from this exploitation?' And to understand that it is not only the Immokalee workers who suffer but every worker in America because that pushes us in a race to the bottom.
