      100%, and something we could, and should, all agree on. Trump recognized their importance, let’s hope that mentality continues.

    Dolores Huerta is a Civil Rights Farm worker’s HERO🌟 She’s marched next to Caesar Chavez and been a pioneer in human rights since the 1960’s.

    Don’t worry Dolores, Since Trump took office, direct aid to farms has grown from $11.5 billion in 2017 to more than $32 billion this year. This year’s funding is an all-time high 🙂

  6. Amazing woman.

  8. Biden has done NOTHING for Productive Americans in 50+ YEARS.
    He should already be in PRISON.

  9. Expect first step tomorrow. Going all the way is the only way to ensure family safety. Can not go back.

  10. 51 billion in welfare since 2016. Some moron actually said tariffs are easy.

    This isn’t an essential skill. I can’t wait until farm work is finally mechanized.

    • Farmwork is definitely essential. You have food on your table because of farm workers. Automatic farms will put millions of people around the world out of jobs and the line of poverty will keep dropping lower and lower. It’s hard work but people need these jobs to live, they are human too.

      @kamskeyd LOL, yeah right

    • @Monique Barber I can’t tell if you’re joking or you’re just too embarrassed to respond properly

    My first job when I was 12 yrs old was picking peppers. I got 30 cents a bushel. I didn’t make a lot of money on the farm, but I was grateful that I didn’t work in the pumpkin patch. We were all white kids in 1980.

    My heart goes to every farmer workers, I prayer they are treated equally for the hard work they do to provide food on the table for all USA CITIZENS. God Bless.

    The farm workers union have been working for a long time defending their rights and Mrs. Dolores Huerta have been around since joining Mr. Cesar Chavez in fighting for fair wages and working conditions for the UFW union.

  16. brilliantly said, ty both. amen. and that central valley heat is brutal.

  17. The guy was completely against illegal immigration, how about they display that fact.

    Jesus loves and cares about you so much so repent so That we all make it to heaven.

    Like so more people can see this.

  19. What a powerful message on all levels about the farm workers needing to be vaccinated, the equal rights amendment and the leadership of Chavez and Huerta. The video of how hard and how fast the workers have to work is quite stunning. A good reminder to us to given the workers their due. Thank you, Lawrence O’Donnell!
