Is there some reason, other than criminal incompetence, for the present immigrant worker fiasco? A case in point: A major American produce grower is shutting down his operation for lack of seasonal pickers. I'd be willing to bet you real money that there is a NAFTA or CAFTA involved American corporation who will benefit(pdf) from this.

WAHOO! Thank BN, you got style!

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
