On Immigration Reformed: By laws that keep workers from working

Unemployment is high, yet there are jobs that go unfilled. Like how about all the pickers needed to harvest Washington apples right now? The governor has enlisted the aid of a little more than 100 prisoners to help pick before frost hits. A drop in the bucket compared to what is needed. The same situation is true on the Central California Coast where the pictures above were taken. Pickers are needed, but don't show up for fear of being deported. My wife said, we need a world with no borders. Is that too utopian? Baha'u'llah affirmed that such a world already exists. Humankind simply hasn't caught on yet.
My cousins have apple orchards in Michigan. I wonder how they're doing with the new laws and regulations? -gw
