Comment: Price Of Immigration Laws - Associated Press reports "It's unclear whether farmers in Georgia and Alabama will face a shortage of workers due to tough new laws targeting illegal immigration, but some producers said they have begun changing their plans for planting and harvesting this year's crops. Some farmers said they might reduce the number of acres they plant or shift to less labor-intensive crops, while others are bracing for higher labor prices and have turned to new recruiting tools to attract workers... Since the laws were approved last year, farmers in both states have reported labor shortages because migrant workers aren't showing up and they say they can't find other workers to fill the jobs. Farmers and state officials have said that some produce was left to rot in the field last year because there weren't enough workers to help with the harvest." Whether the farmers stop growing certain crops, reduce the acreage for crops, let the crops rot in the fields, or pay much higher prices for labor -- all these will translate into higher prices for our produce, and higher grocery and restaurant bills for all of us. This is just another price we pay for draconian immigration laws. We appreciate your comments. Please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
