Georgia is only protecting it's legal immigrant's and legal American worker's. My son lived in Georgia for a while. They want only legal resident's to take low wage job's. And Georgia has always cared about the rule of law. Has nothing to do with white, red, black yellow. The LAW is what they're protecting. Do you think with your limited intelligence you could run anything accept a toilet?

Why is it you wetbax think that the economy will collapse without greasers to clean our toilets, bus our I tables and cut lawns? Don't you think you have somewhat of an inflated opinion of your worth? Here's the truth...you are unskilled, uneducated, baby spewing human garbage and you will never never become citizens. Just remember, white men will sit back patiently before they act but when they do they are merciless toward people of color...blacks, Indians, Chinese immigrants, Vietnamese, Koreans and of course the japs. Watch your brown asses, you scum.the day of reckoning is coming.

So why is it that the state should have to spend money to help navigate a FEDERAL program. It sounds more like they are eliminating two political jobs that cost taxpayers $150,000.00 a year. If farmers need a "liaison" to "navigate the complicated process for getting visas for migrant laborers" then let one of the many farmers lobbying groups do it. What would it cost the farmers if they paid for this sevice?$150,000.00 divided by how many farmers?
The program was only started "after Georgia passed a law targeting illegal immigrants." To shu8t up the farmers who were complaing that they could no longer exploit illegal workers.

They did before welfare, section 8, WIC, SNAP, free breakfast and lunch in school etc. etc. Now rather than pay more for their workers so they can out pay what a person can make on the dole they want to import people both legally and preferably illegally that donít qualify for benefits, at least until the drop an anchor.
Arn't you so proud of youself. Supporting the exploitation of workers and increased profits for the wealthy.

Ha Ha Ha. Yeah right. Sweetheart, modern-day Georgia plantation owners will never go back to the state Georgia was in before the 1980s-90s when huuuge numbers of Asian/Hispanic immigrants came to show them and other racial groups how to work for a living. Ouch!

Less than two, yes, two percent of the wetbax work on farms. Two percent! They would have us believe they all work like slaves in the cotton fields. I see wetbax at McDonalds and burger king, at five guys, at tire stores selling not putting them on cars. I saw a family, a family of wetbax buying ipads at an apple store. Four iPads. These lying, cheating scum are taking jobs from Americans, not just on farms or construction.

Sweetie Pie, I guess you forgot who is in charge, Obama, which are right will screw things up for all Americans as he does his payback to his special interest groups and yes, the economy plunges even more as well as faster under his control.

"A whopping majority of small businesses are feeling gloomy if not completely doom-y about the economy, reports The Daily Caller.
In a survey carried out by the US Chamber of Commerce, 82% of companies officially defined as "small" felt the country was on the wrong track, and 54% expected economic conditions to deteriorate in the next two years.
As for the landmark healthcare bill pushed by the President in his first term, three quarters of businesses polled expect Obamacare to increase their costs, with nearly as many saying it will make hiring more difficult.
"Only 5% reported [Obamacare] would make health care coverage more affordable," writes DC's Betsi Fores. "While the Obama administration continues to tout tax breaks and hiring incentives for small business, business owners are crying for something else: more policy certainty, not more assistance, from Washington."

Whereas that is good, we should be open to having temporary programs that increase employment for non-Americans during harvest time like the Bracero programs. That has the proper amount of people to harvest, but does not encourage illegal immigration which the taxpayer supports. Translation the farmer provides for the workers and they do not stay in America sucking all the jobs as well as resources.

Yeah, the lobby groups should help out and the Latino activists should be for it instead of the illegal aliens. Doubt the activists will do that as that means we follow American laws.

This is part of the entitlement mindset. The agriculture industry has been violating the law for years and when they are finally told that they will no longer be able to violate the law so that they can under pay their labor and avoid complying with regulations that other industries and honest farmers comply with they expect that the tax payer will cover the costs.

This is why I did not vote for Obama. Romney would have at least given business the confidence to invest and expand. Obama right or wrong has an image as unfriendly to business and lacking economic skills. Just like congress business will remain stagnant as long as Obama is in power unless he can do something to change his image.
