"Growers and U.S. Would Suffer" - Immigration Debate


The New York Times ran a series of articles on immigration, August 18, 2011

I collected some humanitarian comments from the article that I wanted to highlight.

"used, abused and exploited undocumented cheap labor." -Winemaster2, GA

"...I still see massive wage and price deflation in the US so that we can compete in a global economy. I see no other way." -Jen, CA

"It is usually cheaper to use serfs than fairly paid laborers. Arguing over the details of "how much cheaper" sidelines the actual moral problem inherent in even offering such a choice for a purportedly civilized society. Much of this discussion is, frankly, shameful." -Matthew, Washington, DC
