"Why are they called migrant workers? They are illegal immigrants!" NO, just no...they are called migrant workers because they migrate with the harvest seasons. They pick tomatoes when the tomatoes are ready, beans when the beans are ready and so forth and so on. Yes many of them are illegal immigrants, but that is NOT why they are called migrant workers.This fundamental misunderstanding of the term being discussed makes me question the validity of your claims, but you have made some very solid observations in the past so now i go to find verification.Also, if you were making a social comment and not actually defining migrant worker you can just disregard all that up there.
