Alabama: How's That Immigration Reform Working Out?



Turns out that it's been a disaster for Alabama farmers. They can't get enough people to harvest crops. The people they can get to work quit after a day or can't move fast enough to make any money. And farmers who had been organic are switching back to machines.

Yes, it is almost as if Stephen Colbert was psychic last year when he testified that farm work is hot and the dirt is at ground level and he, like most Americans, didn't want to do it.

The only thing that remains to be seen is what happens to a state when its agriculture collapses.

We can only hope that lawmakers in Tennessee are smart enough to give it a year to see how this plays out before moving to undercut our farmers.
