James Argroves of Peach State Public Radio reports from Vidalia Georgia, on an unusual agreement between onion growers and the Immigration and Naturalization Service that grants temporary amnesty to undocumented workers, so they can harvest the state's 90-million-dollar onion crop. I.N.S. investigator Bart Safniki says the agreement is good for both the government and the growers but insists it's a one-time deal.
