“This will put thousands of Alabamians back in the workforce,” he said.

Labor Department statistics say workers are available: In Alabama, the unemployment rate was 9.6 percent in May, down from 10.4 percent in December 2009, and higher than the 9.1 percent national average. "

Hispanics Flee Alabama

This kind of sickened me, the way they saw this terrible disaster as a way to make a profit...

"When the tornado hit, Holy Spirit’s Hispanic congregants saw the bright side, said McDade and Lou Ginocchio, a church volunteer.

“They were saying, ‘So much work, so much work, so much work,’” said Ginocchio. “And then the law passed.”

"Hispanics" are fleeing Alabama? Why would they be doing that? I mean if they are here legally why would they be fleeing? Why not call a spade a spade? Illegals are fleeing Alabama. Below an exerpt from the article. So "Hispanics" are ony taking jobs that Americans won't do? No crop picking mentioned at all. These are all jobs that Americans will do. Now we can see one of the reasons that a native English speaker doesn't have a chance anymore with all these Hispanics dominating the jobs and many of them illegals working for dirt pay. No habla espanol, no job!

“Hispanics, documented and undocumented, dominate anything to do with masonry, concrete, framing, roofing, and landscaping,” said Bob McNelly, a contractor with Nash-McCraw Properties, during an interview at a coffee shop near a destroyed gas station and bank. “There are very few subcontractors I work with that don’t have a Hispanic workforce.”

It will happen state by state with maybe a few holdouts until they are totally bombarded from the ones that left the states enforcing the law. Then watch states like Calif. etc. wake up and smell the coffee. One state at a time...tick, tock, tick, tock.

They'll be forced to once they go completely bankrupt providing for illegal aliens and all they have are these low wage earners contributing to the tax coffers with what little income taxes they do pay.

Unless they try to get bailed out by the federal government.
