When have we lived without illegal immigration? Slaves & children were useful too.

Here's a stat for you

The cost to Alabama of its crackdown in June 2011 has been estimated at almost $11bn, with up to 80,000 unauthorized immigrant workers leaving the state.

The state of Georgia passed immigration law HB 87 in 2011--this led, according to the coalition of top Kansas businesses, to 50% of its agricultural produce being left to rot in the fields, at a cost to the state of more than $400m.

Fruit picking labor costs are estimated at $0.36 per pound, so a production rate of 1 pound per minute is required to earn minimum wage after fees are deducted.
