I just want to comment on the article in the paper about migrant workers. It strikes me way below the belt.
You say it's impossible to harvest tobacco without the help of migrants. Well, my friend, I work in tobacco from daylight till past dark and had to pay taxes. You mentioned that migrants send most of their money back to Mexico. Well, sir, how about their taxes? Do they live here and not pay taxes?
I've always worked my fingers off just to catch up on bills. It also seems we can't get a farm job anymore because they say, "No, we've got these migrants and we don't need help."
