Immigration reform appears stalled

Sep 25, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Salinas Californian

While strawberry fields in the Salinas Valley are being plowed under because there are not enough skilled laborers to harvest the crops, a comprehensive immigration reform bill has been stalled by the GOP-controlled House.

why do we need 20+ million illegals to farm our crops? from what I've read, we only need about 2 million to do this. and we already have a legal process in place to bring in people temporary if they are needed.

NO AMNESTY. NOT NECESSARY. nor is it in our best interest.

Why do you guys scare of immigrants ? You afraid because they do what you can't do ? I'm an immigrant, and I believe I can do better in my own country by working hard the way I do in US. Don't worry, because if the Congress doesn't vote for, we'll go back home to work hard to develop our nations. But you never know, some day you could be an immigrant then you'll know how hard it is for being a part of illegal people. Enjoy !

A day will come when you'll want immigrants to be by your side but you won't. When people will realize that working hard in their own country is the only to make it strong economically and peaceful, nobody will immigrate. Do you see China now ? Think about that. Take it easy !

You choose to break our immigration laws and to be an illegal immigrant. A sovereign nation has an obligation to protect our borders. All other nations do the same.

California is slowly legalizing the illegal immergrants. Look it up.
All against federal law.

It's a game of political control, power. Can't be stopped because the Obama admin has chosen to ignore it.
Instead they go after states like Arizona that have passed laws to deal with the issue.

Remember, bush ignored this just like Obama has. No political will and the citizens are focused on getting fat, drunk,or on drugs.

If it makes you feel better then yes I'm illegal just like you.
Ignorant maybe because I'm taking the time to acknowledge you but trash don't think so. To me every human being deserves respect and compassion. What make you trash is your lack of humanity.

The articles says they can't get enough skilled workers to pick strawberries. Skilled? The growers are worried about their slave labor, that's what this is all about. They should be paying a competitive wage to an American instead of depending on our government to subsidize them with cheap illegal labor. Anybody could pick strawberries, regardless what this goofy article says. You could even train monkeys to pick strawberries.
