Like enacted legislation in Arizona and proposed measures in Georgia and Alabama, the South Carolina legislation focuses on bolstering the state's role in curtailing illegal immigration -- long deemed a federal law enforcement responsibility. In some ways, the Palmetto State proposal is not as stringent as those in other states.
Under the legislation, people convicted of making fake immigration documents could be imprisoned for as long as five years. The bill would also make it illegal not to have one's immigration card or to present false identification. But it would not be a crime -- in and of itself -- to be an illegal immigrant in the state of South Carolina.
In addition, the bill prohibits immigrants without proper approvals from working in the state.

Bland Farms of Georgia, which uses the H-2A guestworker program and is a major grower of sweet Vidalia onions, was successfully sued for discrimination against an African-American woman. An article in the Legal Service Corporation's Equal Justice Magazine (Fall 2002) "Discrimination on the Farm," by Daniel Cox, describes the case brought by Georgia Legal Services, and quotes FJ's Bruce Goldstein.
Americans are discriminated against getting work in America by corrupt unions and other employers that do not want to follow the laws.

Black SC lawmaker: Immigrants are hardest workers

COLUMBIA, S.C.—An African-American lawmaker in South Carolina said Tuesday that stricter illegal immigration laws would hurt the state because blacks and whites don't work as hard as Hispanics.
State Sen. Robert Ford made his remarks during a Senate committee debate over an Arizona-style immigration law, eliciting a smattering of nervous laughter in the chamber after he said "brothers" don't work as hard as Mexicans. He continued that his "blue-eyed brothers" don't either.
Once his ancestors were freed from slavery, he said, they didn't want to do any more hard work, so they were replaced by Chinese and Japanese.
"We need these workers here. A lot of people aren't going to do certain type of work in this country," said Ford, D-Charleston. "The brothers are going to find ways to take a break. Ever since this country was built, we've had somebody do the work for us."
He recalled to senators that four workers in the country illegally showed up on his lawn and finished mowing, edging and other work in 30 minutes that would take others much longer, and only wanted $10 for the job. He went on to say he recommended the workers to his neighbors, and one local lawn care businessman lost work—a story one senator remarked was hurting, not helping, his case.
"Black guys and white guys are going to get out there and do the hard work? No. I'm for America, and America's a country of immigrants," Ford said later when reached on his cell phone. "Everybody in America finds ways to take a break."

Those are US companies who prefer foreign labor and because they cannot afford it here due to immigration laws, the US companies moved all to Mexico and china and now we all se the result : NO jobs no taxes are collected from business that are not here :
Mexico was the United States' 3rd largest supplier of goods imports in 2009.
U.S. goods imports from Mexico totaled $176.5 billion in 2009, down 18.2%($39.4 billion) from 2008, but up 257% over the last 15 years. It is up 342% since 1993 (Pre-NAFTA). U.S. imports from Mexico accounted for 11.3% of overall U.S. imports in 2009, up from 7% in 1994.
The five largest import categories in 2009 were: Electrical Machinery ($46.0 billion), Vehicles (cars and parts)($26.8 billion), Mineral Fuel and Oil (crude)($25.2 billion), Machinery ($22.1 billion), and Optic and Medical Instruments ($7.3 billion).
U.S. imports of agricultural products from Mexico totaled $11.4 billion in 2009, the 2nd largest U.S. supplier. Leading categories include: fresh vegetables ($2.8 billion), fresh fruit (excluding bananas)($1.9 billion), wine and beer ($1.5 billion), and snack foods (including chocolate)($1.0 billion).
U.S. imports of private commercial services*(i.e., excluding military and government) from Mexico were $15.8 billion in 2008 (latest data available), up 2.7%($415 million) from 2007, and up 100% from 1994 levels. Travel accounted for most of U.S. services imports from Mexico in 2008.

Did it cost them as much to come into the U.S.? Anyway, I don't think the cost of one-way tickets on Greyhound would cost even near this figure.
