In classic comedic form, talk show host Stephen Colbert testified today on Capitol Hill before the House Judiciary committee's immigration subcommittee. And he quickly got to his point: > This is America. I don't want a tomato picked by a Mexican. I want one picked by an American. Then sliced by a Guatemalan, and served by a Venezuelan in a spa where a Chilean gives me a Brazilian. Because my great grandfather did not travel across 4,000 miles of the Atlantic ocean to see this country overrun by immigrants. He did it because he killed a man back in Ireland. The [Washington Independent]( reported that Colbert was [invited]( to speak after he spent a day working on a farm as part of the United Farm Workers of Americas "[Take Our Jobs](" initiative. While his appearance before the committee has been criticized by liberals and conservatives alike (both noting that one day in the the shoes of a farmworkers doesn't make him an expert, a fact with which Colbert completely agrees), the talk show host maintains that he's willing to use his celebrity to get people talking in a constructive way about immigration reform.
