Bad move, now the baggers will see why the GOP has never done a thing about illegals. I hope those Alabama purists are willing to pick fruit for 3 dollars an hour or pay 3x more fore that fruit.

Pay proper wages and people will show up. You pay next to nothing and people don't show up. See how that works?

Agreed, but then we all whine about the price of fruit and vegetables. Let's also see what happens when all the illegals stop buying food, gas, and rent in Alabama. These laws are a feel good thing for the extreme right but don't even come close to adressing the problems. Well now they will move to swing states and give the Dems a better chance. There are many many layers to passing a bill like this, most of which turn out bad for Alabama, starting with price.

They only believe in "free markets" when the free market lets them exploit cheap labor. When the free market dictates that they have to pay more to find someone willing to do a lousy job, they're no longer in favor of free markets.

The market is a beautiful thing, it will set the price of labor at the point at which workers come to work. If you want to take advantage of illegal aliens you can pay $3 per hour in cash with no taxes. If you want a legal resident, then you have to pay more. Wow, what a concept.

Maybe in addition to stealing labor with illegal aliens, these companies should be allowed to steal other inputs like raw materials, machinery, electricity, etc. Just think how cheap your produce would be then. Heck with that, why don't you just steal it outright and then it costs nothing.

Think a little!

So illegal immigrants are now workers? Why do liberals spend so much time white washing the crimes of people?

Illegals in agra-business is a republican thing silly. I'm not a liberal as much as sensible and it is going to hurt the economy of Alabama. Just a fact. I'm for sealing the border and the right to bear arms and just because I don't blindly take your spoonfed talking points as fact doesn't make me a lib or you a con. You have said nothing I couldn't hear on the rush show today. Brush up on your facts and economics 101 instead of just being a parrot. Anyway, when someone out of nowhere calls me a liberal, I know I stumped them. :)

Why do republicans spend so much time white washing the crimes of employers who hire these people?

Prohibition was an attempt by Progressives to create a society they felt was more pure and moral.
It had horrible unintended consequences.

Reducing the population of any state ( the opposite of growth ) can't but hurt their economy.
This deportation experiment is failing too.

The population you are talking about is a buden on the state. A drain on its resources and contributes very little in the way of taxes to the state.

The same words you spoke were spoken constantly by people watching immigrants get off the boats in NY from 1810 until 1935.

They keep our prices down. Americans won't work for that kind of money. Do you like tomatoes? Do you like peaches? Get ready to pay a lot more.

Wrong, Peter. A large population does not automatically equal growth. Just look at California. It really depends on the quality of the people, not the quantity.

California is a booming economy. The recent downturn has to do with the introduction of a socialist , cradle to grave government they have installed.
