Time for U.S. to copy Canada — again

In my mind’s eye, a group like Western Growers or the Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association could develop the staff to process the applications for guest workers at minimal cost to growers.

There would be no government shutdown that would halt processing of applications. There would be no bloated bureaucracy to feed.

Since the U.S. can’t seem to figure out a way forward on comprehensive immigration reform, let’s copy the Canadians and then claim the credit for the idea.

Makes a lot more sense than privatizing(outsourcing) prisons. I would take it further and allow chartering flights from Central America of at least buses from San Antonio or Yuma where the workers could be processed efficently. We really need to concentrate on getting the workers safely here creating opportunities to get in trouble.
