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?

So, Ted Nugent goes on the air with Glenn Beck to discuss this conspiracy he is trying to imagine to get air time at a funeral to take is name out disgrace for degrading the president, and you believe every word he says? Do you not think that if it was his dieing wish that there would have been more outrage at the fact rather than just reporting on what Glenn Beck and Ted Nugent try and portray as such on Fox News? GET REAL. If his wife wanted him to play and if he in fact put that last request in his will do not think that he would be playing at his funeral? I think so. Before you start believing these backroom conspiracies, how about you understand the politics behind them.
Oh, I get it. Since Ted Nugent isn't a liberal, what he says can't be taken seriously. That's liberal protocall isn't it?

very high up did not want me to be in the same area that day. So I was uninvited in defiance of a dead Navy SEALs personal request,” Nugent explained"
Nugent told a crowd of convention goers that “if Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
“If you can’t go home and get everybody in your lives to clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I don’t even know what you’re made of,” he said. The comments were caught on tape and posted online
Nugent revealed he would be meeting with the Secret Service on Thursday.
Glenn Beck/ Ted Nugent what great role models you are following.
I don't follow their examples but they are infinitely better than the "president" that you put on a pedistal and worship.

Really, a Christian like you thinks a man who said

that "he would either be dead or in jail” if Mr. Obama was re-elected.

is "infinitely better".

As is quite often the case, I have fallen into a trap:

I have engaged in a battle of wits with a completely unarmed person, or facsimile thereof. The sad thing is he/she/it doesn't know it. For the record, I own a 96 year old business that has become more profitable each year I have owned it, and employee pay rates have risen 31% since I became responsible for the taxes. We began providing health insurance for our employees 13 months before the existence of Obamacare was even remotely discussed. All at the hands of an old NCO who does the right thing because its right, not because someone told me I had to. I pay my fair share of taxes and then some, all the while increasing production in my US-owned manufacturing facility and raising pay, while my compensation has stayed the same, and the government composed of Democrats and Republicans has given themselves raises while bankrupting my great grandchildren, assuming that their parents aren't slaughtered by the few idiocrats who seem to think they are the only ones who matter. One day very soon I will sell my business and die heartbroken for the country I once loved, by then in ruins, much like Ancient Greece.
