    Well, since they came here to work, how about just putting them on trains and sending them to work camps.

    I'm sure the Governors of Alabama and Arizona could appoint a committee to figure out exactly how many illegal workers they need, then arrange to have the surplus workers sent to special camps with showers and stuff...

    another melodramaqueen. of course, with the unemployment rate what it is....i'm quite sure those labor jobs would be quickly filled
    with real Americans.

    try again.

    edit: oh my bad...you're not ANOTHER melodrama queen, you're the same one repeating the melodrama in a different quote. nothing exceeds like excess, they say.

    I am not sure why you rate yourself as a moderate. Your stance has been pretty against anything the States try to combat illegal immigration. Is your stance to support open borders?

    Yes it does. Not on the level of border states, but yes.

    Why don't you try debate rather than hyperbole, exaggeration and name calling.

    They do not need illegal workers. There are legal routes for employers to obtain legal workers. They can increase the pay or use the guest worker program.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    You honestly expect to be taken seriously by using nazi references? Are you so desperate that you have to make nazi references in an illegal immigration debate?

    Oh? Just how sure are you?

    Stanley says experienced workers can earn as much as $200 a day. He says he's tried to hire locals to do the job — working in the fields eight hours or more clipping, bending and lifting in the oppressive Georgia heat.

    "They just don't want to do this hard work. And they'll tell you right quick," he says. "I have 'em to come out and work for two hours and they said, 'I'm not doing this. It's too hard.' "


    Georgia Farmers Brace For New Immigration Law | 89.3 KPCC
    Bo Herndon, a farmer in Toombs County, said the labor shortage has already cost him $150,000 in Vidalia onions that rotted in the field.
    [...]
    Jason Berry, a farmer in Baxley, has lost 10 percent of his spring yield of highbush blueberries and has begun picking more fruit by machine. That leads to more damaged fruit that is either rejected or sent to the market for pies and frozen foods rather than the more lucrative market for fresh berries.
    [...]
    Among his 125 acres of blackberries in Irwin County, he [J.W. Paulk] has 150 workers trying to do the work of 250.
    This year he raised wages from $3 to $3.50 per box of blackberries. That will cost him about $10,000 more a week.
    ...he has already abandoned one field, which cost him about $40,000.

    You can yell and scream all you want about the unemployed being lazy or cut off their benefits if they don't take the jobs or whatever. The bottom line is these farmers are having a hard time getting people to work at the wages needed to make a profit without these immigrants.

    Legal immigration into this country is a horrifically convoluted and lengthy process. For a poor, unskilled person with no family ties here it is usually impossible.
