    If they paid people a descent wage then they would not have to worry about getting the help that they need.

    Washington never passed any laws against illegal immigration.

    11-20 million people here illegally, and they won't work for the farmers? I smell rotten apples.

    Have they all left for the city to get the better paying jobs? if so, then blame the business community for stealing your workers with better pay and conditions.

    Using the unlimited visas, and your protected.

    If companies had not been undercutting American labor for 25 years, maybe they would feel bad for the farmers and help them out. Looks like payback.

    Does this mean that the laws in Georgia and Alabama were not to blame for the shortage of workers?

    Is this an attempt to bring more visa workers here so they can walk off the job, and never be forced to return to their country?
