Orange You Glad We're Having an Immigration Panic?


Via frequent Hit and Run commenter Jennifer comes this account of a shortage of labor to pick Florida's crop of delicious, refreshing, healthful oranges. (This moment brought to you by the Florida Citrus Product Research Advisory Council.)

An AP account of the story, which doesn't really stress anti-immigrant panic. It merely dryly noted toward the end that "labor supply was tight from the beginning of the season in October, but grew worse by the middle of May when a large segment of the Hispanic labor force seemed to leave the state."
