This article examines the effects of H-2A, a government program that "was designed to allow farmers to temporarily employ foreign workers during periods of labor shortage. In reality, farmers are increasingly using H-2A to permanently replace Americans workers with a captive labor force." Mother Jones finds that "the conditions are hardly hospitable - but those who speak out can be sent straight back home."
