I wonder why this seems to be of no concern to some Americans?

Open border crowd seems to want to keep printing and spending money with no thought of tomorrow, but now more are waking up to the reality.

Many friends i know who live in the HIGH DESERT AREA , are all not wanting illegals in this State at all. S.F. is another story in itself, but most of the people i know don't want a part of any illegal immigration, and they are so frustrated as i am. I write letters, email, constantly, and let those in power in the State know how i feel, i email them almost every day, and drive them nuts. Yes i get the ususal letter from Boxer saying sorry but she disagrees with my stance on immigration of course, she and the other Dems are most of the problem. Want problems solve, stop being ingorant jerks in this State and voting the same clowns in BROWN!!!!!!!

I have family who live in the inland areas the inland empire, and i have a rental in that area also, Canyon Crest Hills a beautiful area,the people i know there and yes some mexican Americans, they too do not want illegals coming and invading our space.

We are an extremely large State, infact some of you small wee bitty States could fit inside of Calif, this is how big we are. Not everyone in this State wants any part of illegal immigration in any way, most of the people i know in O.C. or where i live want any part of illegals period.

I been all over California, and this State has some boonies, i mean the friggin boonies out there in no where land, this State is very large, from some parts of O.C. it can take more then 10 hours to get to S.F. and most of the people i do come across in no way want illegal immigration at all. But you still have the ignorant.

Note the name of the dissenter below - go figure.

"Jerry Gonzalez", the executive director of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials, said the move won’t help save farmers he said could lose $300 million because of the loss of migrant workers.

The argument that it would add thousands of new workers they cannot afford is bogus.

After you arrest someone they go to jail.
Once in jail you find out they are illegal.
They already put immigration holds on people in jail.
You call ICE and the matter is out of your hands. THIS IS THE NEW PIECE.

They need thousands of extra workers to make that call ?
What do they know that we don't ? Are there that many illegals that get arrested and brought to jail ?

There are 11K jobs to be filled and 8K probationers in the area...

Gary Black, delivered to Deal a survey that found state farm owners have 11,080 jobs they now need to fill.


According to Deal, Georgia has 100,000 probationers, with 8,000 in the state’s heavily-agricultural southwest.
If the program isnt mandatory...I doubt many of the 8,000 in the area would apply or be qualified for farm work.

But Im sure other unemployed will fill the gap.

PS porbationers are not going to make $15 an hour. Unskilled labor does not make as much as the experienced.

The vast majority of those jobs pay $15 per hour or less and last between one and six months, Black’s survey found.
