The Two-Way

Watch Stephen Colbert testify on NPR's news blog.

Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert testified before an immigration panel on undocumented farm workers Friday. Colbert spent a day working on a New York vegetable farm, observing that it was so hard that he would never again be able to watch Green Acres. The conservative Colbert persona said U.S. farms are far too dependent on immigrant labor, so the "obvious answer is to stop eating fruits and vegetables."
