File this under the category of “Well that’s a surprise!” On Friday, September 24, Stephen will testify before the House Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law. The hearing, “Protecting America’s Harvest”, will focus on immigration issues. Stephen’s invitation apparently stems from his July interview with United Farm Workers president Arturo Rodriguez, who challenged Stephen to become a farm laborer for a day as part of the Take Our Jobs campaign.

The hearing is scheduled at 9:30am EDT, and will be webcast at house.gov. It looks like they don’t archive video of hearings, but a transcript should be available soon after.
To remind you of the issues at hand, here’s Arturo Rodriguez’s recent appearance on the show:
