I may get deleted for this but I wanted to post it here first before I post it in GA forums where I really **** people off and get flagged alot.

I posted the other day about how run down a section of Canton looked since becoming "Little Mexico". I also posted about how immigrants stand in the parking lots and wait for someone to come by and hire them for the day. A few have been illegal. I know because I called INS and watched them being picked up.

I will admit....there used to be A LOT more but maybe since the new law hopefully taking effect on July 1 has sent some of them packing. Also, I was driving way too fast by one section and the picture did not take good.

They will literally swarm you if you slow down because they think you are looking for day labor. A guy in the GA forum did not believe that this happens. I told him I would take pictures. I say I mean and mean what I say.

So, I took pictures.

**NOTICE how the one is flagging me down that don't see my camera yet LMAO!

Okay when we all start paying outrageously high prices for groceries and other goods you will be wishing the illegals were here.

When come back bring facts.

Only three percent of illegals work in agriculture. Any slightly higher grocery prices will be more than paid back in lower costs for health care and education.

We really don't need lots of high school drop outs who don't speak English here. If they were net economic contributors their own countries would welcome them home instead of demanding we take them in.

Nope not me! I'll perhaps get off my butt and grow a garden but if the "extra" money I'm paying for necessities goes to providing a living wage for a north american legal citizen, that's fine by me.

You wanta compete with third world countries and sell your fruit and veggies overseas to become rich, well, you shouldn't be able to do that if the labour rate is the only thing supporting your choice to hire "illegals".

This stuff's got to stop!

The Texas law that states you can't hire an illegal unless it's for your personal useage is just plain chicanery of the old 'slave trade' in dressed-up, string tie disguise. Tx governor needs an a** whupp'n for that one!

My father works and owns an agricultural business that DOES NOT hire illegal aliens. They are moving out of my state now due to the bill being passed. Other farmers cannot find people who are willing to do the work, only the illegals were happy and willing to do the hard work. NO American wants these jobs and that is why we will see higher prices next time you go to your local farmer's market, give it a couple of months are so and you will see the difference.

We are already being taxed to death and supporting illegals with our taxes.

So how does your father find legal workers?

With the aside that day laborers don't hang out in places in Mexico, so there wouldn't be a comparison...

No such current government agency. With your location, that would be ICE (it looks to be away from any possible Border Patrol coverage)? How fast can they get someone out from the Atlanta Field Office that you are still watching for the pick-up?
