<quoted text>We do not have a NEGATIVE immigration flow. There are illegal aliens caught in my town everyday. Texas and Arizona have a battle on their hands also. Almost half of the illegal aliens here now overstayed their visas. When you legalize people you create another class of people that half to come in and fill the void. We saw this with IRCA in 1986 when Regan legalized 3 million. We need deportations not legalization.
Wow, you just cannot grasp the fact that we have a 0 or maybe negative net migration flow can you. Look it up. http://www.pewresearch.org/daily-number/net-m...
Yah, you republicans say you need help on the boarder and want the government to help out, yet want them to cut spending at the same time. That makes sense. Why do you create another class of people? What you say makes no sense. The void would be picked up by new imigrants or workers here in the U.S. You make no sense. We need to strictly search, find out, and stop all illegal immigration and that is what we are doing; however, we cannot hire more to do the job as we would be spending to much. What would be your plan? Build a wall? LOL. Give me a break.

<quoted text>You asked me to name some bad things happeniing today. I did. Who is in control, who has been in control for over 4 years?
Yes you did, but what were those things caused by? Noone controls a lame duck congress so you tell me. The stimulus stopped the bleeding and no legislation sense has passed the House. There are jobs bills and infrastructure bills sitting on the house floor gathering dust, because every republican was so intent on making Obama a one term president, which did not happen, and voted over 50 times against Obamacare instead of voting once on a jobs bill. There is not one person who controls the U.S. as we do not live under a dictatorship. So, when you have a House full of Republicans that does not want to accept reality and stalls every chance they get then that holds up government function and in my eyes should be sought as treason. To knowingly let our country be downgraded and boycott every piece of legislation with no intent on compromise is degrading not only to the nation but to the party those few stand for and now they are starting to realize that sense Republicans are turning on themselves.

<quoted text>Here's the deal, I read your long extended post i'm not going even answer that with a reply. But i'm firmly believe you are a socialist. And you do believe in obama's agenda. I am not on any kind of assistance as you have accused me of, I'm a hard working tax payer who hates seeing our country turn into a welfare state. You on the other hand get on here and get on to anybody that doesn't agree with you. Which shows you don't know nothing and show us all you stupidity. Go talk to barney you two would make a great couple.
Ok. So your not going to reply because you know I am right, that is ok. That is fine you think I am a socialist, but you might need to get the right knowledge of what a socialist is before you start go around calling people that or they might look at you a little weird, but please continue governor. What is Obama's agenda? If it is helping those in need while helping the rest of the country then yes I am all for that agenda. Oh I accused you of something please intel with a quote. I am a hard working tax payer as well who also does not want our country turned into a credit card for the needy. No I get on to those who cannot take fact as fact and keep interpreting it as lies through simple minded rhetoric. I am confused on the stupidity question. Am I showing everyone my stupidity or telling them how stupid they are? Anyways it was a nice try and a good attempt on your part to almost leave enough clues to know what you were talking about but almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

Your state is not the only one with immigration problems from that country are you that naive? I stated the "wall" question because that is what you republicans have been calling for the whole length of the boarder, yet want to cut governemnt spending. If a laborer working in the field is picking apples they will be picking apples after they get their green cards only to be taxed on their wages. If the company is paying them illegaly then they need to be reported, so instead of griping, do something. My brother also lives on the boarder and the same happens in California as well and if they know where they work they report, it is that simple.

The void will be filled you say,

sorry, I respectfuly disagree, and here is why,

The Broetjes and an increasing number of farmers across the country say that a complex web of local and state anti-immigration laws account for acute labor shortages. With the harvest season in full bloom, stringent immigration laws have forced waves of undocumented immigrants to flee certain states for more-hospitable areas. In their wake, thousands of acres of crops have been left to rot in the fields, as farmers have struggled to compensate for labor shortages with domestic help.

Roughly 70% of the 1.2 million people employed by the agriculture industry are undocumented. No U.S. industry is more dependent on undocumented immigrants. But acute labor shortages brought on by anti-immigration measures threaten to heap record losses on an industry emerging from years of stiff foreign competition. Nationwide, labor shortages will result in losses of up to $9 billion, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation.

You know absolutely nothing about border issues. A documented alien will move on to other jobs and welfare. More illegals will come in to pick apples and such. That is the way it is and has always been. I-9's are not enforced anymore. Sanctions do not happen because ICE is not allowed to do Interior Enforcement and the Border Patrol has their hands full between the ports of entry.

Hundreds of thousands of aliens deported a year. It is working good but would be better if we could get all of the illegals out of the country.

Georgia’s Harsh Immigration Law Leaves Crops Rotting in Fields

Georgia is in need of more than 11,000 field hands, but the only solution offered up so far by Republican Governor Nathan Deal is for farmers to hire 2,000 ex-cons.

The Florida Senate's Budget Committee Chairman, J.D. Alexander, a term-limited Republican citrus farmer, was an important roadblock to Florida getting into the immigration enforcement business. Alexander told his colleagues that he resented being asked to "choose between hard-working people and somebody's uninformed knowledge."

Georgia, on the other hand, went with the uninformed knowledge

AND? When illegals get documented they move on. Now SOMEBDOY has to fill the jobs they move on from. I have seen this for decades along the border. I have forgotten more about Border Security than you will ever know. More illegals will come. If Regans amnesty worked in 1986 (IRCA) why do we have to do it again now? Common sense is not a virtue you possess..

Georgia has plenty of people on welfare that are capable of working. Those people should have to work those fields for a check. Do you work?
