Potential racism alert - assuming you recognize that "urban" is sometimes used by racists as a euphemism for non-white.
From the House GOP agriculture bill
"...a small program intended provide meals to children in the school lunch program during the summer months and says it can now only be used to benefit kids in "rural areas"
quote: Since 2010, the program has operated from an initial appropriation of $85 million, and the goal has been to test alternative approaches to distribute aid when schools are not in session. The White House asked for an additional $30 million to continue the effort, but the House bill provides $27 million for what’s described as an entirely new pilot program focused on rural areas only.
Democrats were surprised to see urban children were excluded. And the GOP had some trouble explaining the history itself. But a spokeswoman confirmed that the intent of the bill is a pilot project in “rural areas” only.
The NAFTA and similar movements trashed Latin America even more than America. These people are economic refugees. The old rule of thumb, at least in the old movies and sitcoms, is that once you marry a U.S. citizen you're a legal resident. The law doesn't henpeck you about it any longer.

Where it gets sticky is when the support of those bigots is needed to have the necessary political clout, which leads to the active courting of bigots. Eventually, the proposals and the language of the debate is hopelessly bigoted regardless of whether some started out with "noble" intentions.
