    I've always felt the reason for a lack of a comprehensive immigration policy for people south of the Rio Grande is that employers simply don't want one. Especially in farm states like California.

    This is by no means a partisan issue as it stretches across party lines and encompasses blue and red states. Just like the War on Drugs, the key to winning is a matter of reducing demand.

    Hey, it's not just farming folks. Who's the labor force on all those double-wides? Or the crews on conventional houses?

    Multitudes of illegals are picked up, but the facilities don't exist to stash them while awaiting hearings or after a court order calls for deportation.

    And on and on and on...
