Stephen Colbert testified before the House Judiciary Committee’s immigration subcommittee on the subject of the United Farm Workers’ “Take Our Jobs” campaign, which invited legal citizens and residents to replace undocumented workers in the fields. Colbert used his program in the past to highlight this initiative by performing field labor for a day.

“I don’t want a tomato picked by a Mexican. I want it picked by an American, sliced by a Guatemalan . . . and served in a spa where a Chilean gives me a Brazilian.”
