Public Description:  

H.R. 884, the Agricultural Job Opportunities, Benefits, and Security Act, would create a massive agricultural guest-worker amnesty, allowing approximately 860,000 of the 1.2 million illegal aliens currently working in agriculture – plus their spouses and children – to qualify for this amnesty, thus pushing the total to three million or more. It would also reward illegal immigration by protecting illegal aliens granted temporary resident status from prosecution for Social Security fraud.
