Russ Bynum of the AP offers today's article about crops rotting in the fields: "Effects of Crackdown on Illegals".
It contains several quotes from Georgia farmers claiming that they'd go out of business if they couldn't hire workers. And, while they claim that all of them provide the proper documentation, they also admit that most of them are probably here illegally. And, they also warn that if the documentation requirements are strengthened, they might have to shut up shop.
Have they just considered giving bags of cash to public officials? That will probably get their attention.
If you'd like to suggest that the AP does actual news coverage rather than printing propaganda, please send an email to: feedback *at* ap.org
