Amnesty update: Feinstein/Craig illegal alien farmworker measure “jettisoned”…for now

Democratic leaders were forced to jettison provisions to award work permits for immigrant farm labor and seasonal workers just hours after beginning debate Tuesday on legislation to add domestic programs to President Bush’s war request.
