In all votes for the legislature, precisely 30 GOP rep. supported it. It is a bill very similar to the one from 2019. They vote for the bill due to the opportunity that the Dems will get, including an ocean of amnestied voters. It means that farm companies and their investors will have numerous supplies of cheap H-2A visa workers.

From 34 to 30, the decline of votes is the proof that we were looking for to confirm the counter-pressure from pro-American grassroots groups like ALIPAC and FAIR.

Those who supported this bill from the GOP are likely to lose their political careers.

More than 85 % of the 211 GOP rep. voted against the bill of amnesty.

Rep. Michael Burgess voted against the bill. He said:
“We are nearing the end of a pandemic that has left many Americans without work,”

“Congress’ priority should be finding ways to encourage American businesses to hire more American workers rather than prioritizing foreign workers. American jobs should first and foremost go to American workers,”
Even eight GOP legislators remained silent about the amnesty bill called H.R. 1603, the ‘’Farm Workforce Modernization Act.’’

A few senior GOP leaders that supported the bill in 2019, but no in 2021, are Tom Cole and Steve Stivers, and Russ Fulcher.

Many legislators that in 2019 who supported the bill now remained sustained. Some of them are Don Young and Adam Kinzinger.

FAIR stated:

What happened today is no surprise – lawmakers have taken no initiative to address the crisis and instead are worsening it by advancing bills that incentivize migrants to come to the country illegally. The only crisis, as far as all Democrats and a handful of Republicans are concerned, is the lack of amnesty for illegal aliens already here, and these bills aim to “fix” only that problem.

Senate Republicans must hold firm and oppose both the American Dream and Promise Act and the Farm Workforce Modernization Act if they are brought to the floor in the upper chamber. The border crisis is raging, and the American people are watching – address the crisis, do not exacerbate it.

The bill title is deceptive; the legislation does nothing to actually modernize America’s agricultural workforce. That would require automating many of these jobs using advanced technology and programs designed to give farmers access to those innovations. Further, the framework for improving legal farm labor already exists – fix problems within the current H-2A program. This, and encouraging the adoption of labor- and cost-saving automated harvesting technologies, represents true modernization. Another senseless amnesty at the worst possible time does not.”

In November, during his hearing, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) stated something about this act.

This bill adds wage caps to prevent wages [for H-2A visa workers] going up by more than 3.25 percent in most of the country. Considering that the AEWR rates [Adverse Effect Wage Rate for H-2As] recently went up 23 percent in certain states, this is a big concession [to business]. Those kinds of wage increases would no longer happen under this bill.

…These are significant wage reforms — a recent report by the CATO institute found that the bill, if enacted, would have saved farmers $324 million in labor expenses in 2019 alone.”
