Farmers Fear Shortage of Workers: What About Illegal Aliens Already Here?
By: John Lillpop
In an outrageous article in the January 21 San Jose Mercury News titled Farmers Fear Shortage of Workers, Julia Scott breaks out the violins and crying towels for poor agricultural tycoons who face a shortage of farm workers.
Please, save you tears and pity for both the corrupt framers and the illegal aliens they are so fond of.
To begin with, growers should not hire illegal aliens. To do so is a violation of U.S. laws, and is a major reason why America is saddled with 20 million illegal aliens right now.
Secondly, how can there be a “shortage of workers” in a nation that is overwhelmed and overrun by illegal aliens?
For example, just last April and May, Americans were horrified at the sight of millions of illegal aliens marching through our streets to protest the rule of law.
Why not round up these criminals, outfit them with straw hats, picking buckets, and other required farm-work paraphernalia, and ship them to the nearest needy grower?
In addition, jail systems throughout America already use incarcerated inmates to clean parks and roadways.
Why not force those here illegally, and in jail or prison, to meet the needs of the American people for a change?
Other venues for locating illegal immigrants: Day labor centers, Home Depot stores, welfare offices, food stamp distribution centers, and state and federal prisons.
Thirdly, if farmers would pay competitive wages, their labor needs would be met by real Americans–citizens and others who are here legally.
Indeed, reports indicate that the â€œshortfallâ€ of agricultural workers is also the result of illegal aliens working in construction and other U.S. industries.
In other words, illegal aliens already here are no longer willing to pick produce and fruit.
Finally, much like this nation’s addiction to foreign oil, America is addicted to slave labor from the third world.
This addiction represents a major threat to homeland security, national sovereignty, economic and social stability, and preservation of American values and culture.
America needs to end this insidious addiction to slave labor: The following steps should be taken to guarantee an America free from dependency on slave labor:
* Secure our borders, with military force if needed.
* Deport all illegal aliens currently in the U.S.
* Prosecute and punish all business owners that undermine the national security by hiring illegal aliens.
* Hold the Mexican government accountable for its role in the invasion of America by third-world criminals.
By cutting off the flow of illegal aliens, American politicians can do what is right for working families, while at the same time fighting terrorism and preserving American culture.
