A Fitting Result

Cut off your nose to spite your face.

Leaders of Georgia’s vital farming industry blamed Wednesday a draconian new immigration law for labor shortages estimated to have cost the southern US state at least $75 million.

A study by the University of Georgia’s Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development found Tuesday that peak harvest employment would have been 12,930 but that there was a shortage of 5,244 workers in the fields.

The study did not explain the shortages but farmers said a new immigration law had scared off Hispanic workers who were now afraid of being deported to Mexico, with their children being left behind in the United States.

  Raw Story

So where are all those white guys who would be working if it weren't for the damned illegals that come in and take their jobs?

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
