"“Hence, the law is costly to the state in an economic sense even if only the reduction in aggregate demand is considered,” Addy said in the report."

In other words we have not considered the savings so the study is a sham.

Georgia farmers cried the same way, but fortunately the people of Georgia saw through the BS. The Georgia farmers can find ALL the migrants they need with the time proven H2A program.
All that needs to be done is to get the migrants out of the communities they have invaded and back to the farms where they belong.
Georgia citizens are already seeing the benefits of stopping illegal aliens from invading their state. Unemployment is down and the schools, jails and hospital costs are dropping have the affect of budget surpluses andf lower taxes for legal citizens.
With more employed Georgians making higher wages and being taxed less, it won't be long before the American dream is once again possible for the legal Georgian resident!

Illegal aliens don't believe in any law enforcement, why is that? Law enforcement may lead to having them deported.

I see the MSM is still quoting that idiotic puff piece 'study' that would not withstand peer review as fact.

The rock has been tossed into the pond. Let the waves settle and all will be well again.
