Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

EVERYBODY BETTER TO LEARN TO RUN YOUR LAWNMOWER

Rate this Entry

Georgia is home to some of the most vocal anti-immigrants so there should be some interesting dynamics in that state as their immigrant population starts to leave. A report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution entitled "Georgia Firms Bracing For Big Headaches". As much as 12% of the state's population could be affected:

The Bush administration's
new crackdown on illegal immigration could have a devastating impact on
key industries in Georgia, business and legal experts said Friday.


Forcing companies to fire employees whose Social Security numbers
and names don't match government records may disrupt the state's
agricultural, construction and hospitality industries, they predicted.




"I think there will be a fairly significant impact on employers,"
said David Whitaker, executive director of the Georgia Employers'
Association, a Macon-based organization that provides members with
management and human resource services.

My favorite quote from the story:

Tommy Bagwell, chief
executive of American Proteins, a poultry by-products rendering
business in Cumming, said illegal immigrant labor is indispensable in
the U.S. economy for business and homeowners.


"Everybody better learn how to run your lawnmower because there ain't going to be nobody to cut your grass," he said.

    I live in Atlanta and I agree with the comment on learn to run lawnmower. Fortunately I cut my grass and not so worried. I think landscaping business will take a hit. In the office complex I work I see the landscaping company changing plants/flowers every two weeks and not sure how they are going to handle this.

    Would you please send me a manual for a Toro. Do you think there will be lots of used equipment available for me.... if I wait long enough? I sure hope they do not take their equipments with them.... when they scamper back over the border. Maybe they can use the product Perfect Patch down their in Mexico and start growing some real green green grass. Then they will have something to cut!
