Many of the illegal immigrants who once were a visible part of Bay County’s schools, churches and construction sites have disappeared.

Sheriff Frank McKeithen said earlier this month the work of his agency is a major factor in the exodus. However, construction experts and others involved in the immigrant community say the construction boom that brought the workers to Bay County has dried up, forcing them to seek work elsewhere.

Excluding the sanctions bit, this effect is supporting economists who theorize that laborers in general will follow the work. When the demand is gone the supply goes elsewhere. Just an observation... nothing more and nothing less.
