Agriculturalists say E-Verify would harm industry

E-verify is free to use and very simple. Farmers oppose it because they prefer to hire $5 an hour illegals instead of americans. Farmers are traitors.

Of course, farmers are opposed to this! They want their black market labor force so that they can rake in millions, pay peanuts to their workers and let the taxpayers pick up the tab for their workers' social costs.
The greedy bastards should be made to obey the law or close down their operations and sell them to someone who can figure out how to farm and comply with the law.

Maybe these "farmers" have to actually have to tell their HR departments to hire legal workers.

I agree with you. I also just LOVE the farmers argument that they need to use illegal labor to keep the cost of produce low so that we can all afford it. Really? If Americans were forced to pay double at the grocery store, we'd still be ahead because as you mention, the social cost of having these illegals around is killing the USA.
I also LOVE the farmers argument "no one else [aside from the Mexicans] will do the work"... Hum... how about CUT WELFARE OUT OF THE PICTURE. If CA supported a "Work for welfare state" all of those folks who sit home on the couch waiting for their next check would be forced to go pick [insert crop here] or go find a 'real' job.

I totally agree. The state should go to the homes of anyone on public assistance and verify that they're either working some kind of job or in some sort of educational program. If not they should have them a hoe, tell them to stop watching TV and go kill some weeds down at the local farm.
We'd need alot less herbicide and the lefties would love that!
