What gets lost in all the hyperventilating over states passing these measures is the real reason the pro illegal immigrant community is so upset and filing law suits to stop them. It is the realization that while these laws are merely for the most part mimicking already standing federal laws, the states mean to follow through with the enforcement part. Illegals laugh at the DHS and ICE since they have come to realize that political correctness has hobbled the agencies into paralysis.
In Georgia there has been a howl of protests from farmers who are suddenly finding themselves without a work force this year, but maybe, just maybe if some of those unemployed citizens really want to work they should contact these farmers. I am not going to deny that the work is hard especially in the hot weather we have but it all boils down to how serious a person is about providing for their family through a honest days work or if they are content to continue sitting at home drawing that government check each month. There is a large pool of out of work young people this year thanks to Obamanomics and if you can pry them away from their gaming consoles they could fill this shortfall.
