Alabama Reaps What It Sowed

Great Seal of The State of Alabama

Alabama’s draconian new immigration law has caused an exodus of cheap labor and resulted in crops rotting on the vine, small businesses going belly up and tax revenues evaporating.

Well done!

From the New York Times:

Undocumented immigrants make up about 4.2 percent of Alabama’s work force, or 95,000 people in a state of 4.8 million. For all of the talk about clearing the way for unemployed Americans, there is no evidence that Alabamians in any significant numbers are rushing to fill the gap left by missing farm laborers and other low-wage immigrant workers.

So, Alabama is going to suffer some hard years, even if it miraculously decides to overturn the law.

It serves Alabamians right.
