Cyclone Conservatives: Immigration Showdown Looming Over Farm Bill?

Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives

Tuesday Morning Update: Check out this article from today's Washington
Post. As Republicans, let's welcome this immigration debate with open
arms. As we learn more about the upcoming farm bill that is currently
being put together in Congress, we are learning that there is one very
controversial aspect that could re-inject the immigration issue back
into a prominent position in the political sphere of public discourse.
According to a Des Moines Register article: 'Legislation that would
grant legal immigration status to thousands of migrant farmworkers
will likely be added to the Senate's farm bill, said Senate Majority
Leader Harry Reid...' Will an issue like this be enough to hold up this
bill?
