Back in September of last year, Stephen Colbert did a report on just how tough it was to be a migrant worker in the United States when he hosted this segment here -- Stephen Colbert's Fallback Position - Migrant Worker. That was followed by his testimony the next day before the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Immigration which you can watch some of here -- Colbert reads opening statement at House immigration hearing.

After Alabama ran into some problems with their harsh new immigration laws that Dave Neiwert wrote about here -- Alabama Harvests the Bitter Fruit of Its Harsh New Immigration Laws: Tomatoes Dying On the Vine -- Stephen Colbert got the opportunity on his show this Wednesday to tell Alabama... "I told you so!"
