Hello! I know I may be unpopular at the moment seeing as how I am from AZ, but I hope to clear up some annoying misconceptions about my state after I post 20 replies! lol. Anyway...been reading this website for a few years now, and decided to join after my home was labeled the 'hateland' by a rich guy on TV. Guess who, and you get a cookie! Anyway..thanks for having me!

Actually ATS members differ on Arizona. None the less welcome to the forums.

I'm from Arizona too.

It just bugs me that most when it comes to this border situation - - can't see past the end of their nose.

IT IS a BIG problem for so many reasons. But most everyone wants to zero in on one small aspect of it.

Many years ago we used to have a legal work program for Mexican laborers/field workers. Some politician used "they're taking away American jobs" as her political platform and the legal work program was abolished.

In 2006 Bush created a seasonal worker program - but it has been unsuccessful - www.lsu.edu...

BUT - the jobs are still here - and the Mexicans are still doing them. The only way they can - illegally.

Probably hundreds of millions of dollars will be lost by Arizona and San Diego crop growers - - because they can't get their crops harvested. Actually its already happened from crackdowns the last few years. Then there are the trucking companies who transport the crops. And the grocery stores - and their workers - etc. There is a whole chain of people - probably legal residents - who are going to be affected.

Not to mention the price of produce. We've already lost so many to weather conditions.

EuroFresh seeks bankruptcy, cites crop loss, labor - Cites immigration policy changes for labor crunch. www.reuters.com...

Help Save US Farms - www.saveusfarms.org...

There are so many more stories.

---------------------------------------------------------

I am unable to devote time to a thread. If anyone wants to take this approach and get the full story out - - feel free to do so.

Thanks.

I like Arizona and I support Latinos, and I always conspire. I´ve been trying to sell my 36 books to the Arizona government and police force.

I like Arizona and have been there many times. I also have to agree that you have a fine Governor. I wish there were more like her.

The problem with our state is the cranky old bastards who're set in their ways and can't understand the word "progressive" without Reagans voice speaking it.

That being said, I need out of this damned state.

Welcome to the board.

No Lie!

I am thankful I wasn't raised there. It's like living in a "time warp" sometimes.
