Without citing statistics, Ritter said employers around the state complain they face worker shortages because of laws passed in 2006 to fight illegal immigration. He said efforts to fortify guest worker programs would offer a solution.

“I quite frankly think that one of the people who understood this issue best in public life was (President) George Bush,” Ritter said. “George Bush had a real desire to tackle this issue.” One law created a State Patrol unit with the authority to enforce federal immigration law during routine patrols and curb human smuggling. Another barred immigrants from receiving some state services unless they could prove they were in the country legally. Also in 2006, lawmakers passed a bill requiring police to report anyone they believe to be in the country illegally to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.


Tough laws shrinking supply of immigrant workers, Ritter says : Local News : The Rocky Mountain News

Treasonous idiots like this one should be eligible for deportation.

Agreed. This country is on a very uncertain path, that is beginning to resemble a depression.

Sadly, this is true. Ritter should be more concerned about the shrinking job market for U.S. citizens.

There isn't one job today that shouldn't be filled by an American. I know many who are out of benefits and are doing anything they can find.
