With more border enforcement expected, stepped up employer sanctions and enforcement may be a concern, said Frank Gasperini, executive vice president and chief executive officer of the McLean, Va.-based National Council of Agricultural Employers. The farm labor supply for specialty crop growers was generally reported as adequate in early July, but Gasperini said there are worries of shortages this fall when apple harvest gears up across the U.S.

I do not understand why it is so difficult to get something done on immigration? We know that the status quo is terrible, we know that the problem is compounding BY THE SECOND and we know that our system is completely broken. This is obvious to both sides, isn't it??! If we are logical about it, we know that it is impossible to kick everyone out just as it is to let everyone in. So why can't we find a compromise?? The sooner that we tune out the radicals (on both sides), the sooner we will finally find a solution to solve this problem that is AT THE CORE of every other problem we face. There is no fixing the health care, securing the nation, reducing crime or even balancing state budgets without fixing immigration first. Let's put our differences (politics) aside and let's get this done people!!

Produce Guy has summarized it well. Unfortunately this debate, and others, seems to never get to logic, right, workable--- but gets stuck on personal re-election and personal anger issues at the political and grassroots levels. We need more Produce Guys and much less political jockeying!
