Haven't the politicians learned that it's the same old song and dance dealing with these advocate groups? I mean, why even bother with them? There is not further debate needed. We know what's going on and so do they. Make the damn laws and vigorously start enforcing the ones already on the books. Let them howl, bitch and complain as they gather up their up belongs to go back home of to a friendlier state for now. NO more debate! Get on with it!! Tell everyone what is going to be done and do it!!

"One aspect of the bill would force employers in Florida to verify the legal status of all new hires, a requirement that is sure to annoy Florida's $7.5 billion agriculture industry, which relies on undocumented workers.

"When he gets before the agriculture committee up there in Tallahassee, you can expect some push-back on this bill," said David Weber, a blueberry grower from Polk County who attended a town hall meeting on the bill on Jan. 7 in Palm City and also joined the group of immigrant advocates who met with Snyder on Wednesday in Stuart.

"I don't think this bill will make it out of committee up there," Weber said. "The way it was written, in the first place at least, it would cause great economic and social disruption."

Another constituency that Snyder expects to hear from is the tourism industry. The restaurant industry, especially, is known to employ undocumented workers and would be affected by the bill."

Enough said!
