Sounds like Comedy Central’s pseudo-conservative personality wants to do more than just Keep Fear Alive here in the D.C. According to a release from the United Farm Workers of America, the comedian will be joining UFW’s president, Arturo S. Rodriguez to testify before the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law this Friday.

It seems like the media is still trying to get to the bottom of Colbert’s appearance, but it may have something to do with an appearance last July by Rodriguez on Colbert’s show. Rodriguez had appeared initially to discuss the “Take Our Jobs” campaign, a program from the UFW that involved rallying Americans to pick up their hoes and commit to the work that is often labeled as “done by immigrant workers.”

I may even watch CSPAN for this.
