Feb 6th and Mar 13th at 7pm Channels 9,14 for Dr. Scan to see Dr. For nearly a year the big grove sits silent, first in fragrant, snowy blooms, then in green balls little bigger than walnuts, then in yellowing fruit as hard to the touch as a baseball.
One day in January, though, when the oranges take on their harvest hue, a white bus arrives suddenly, along with trucks and trailers. Men spill into the grove like a squad of assaulting soldiers, slapping tall aluminum ladders into the trees.
They fix sizeable bags that will carry pounds of citrus to their heavy pant belts and position giant cereal bowls along the straight rows the waisthigh grove containers. When the workers fill a container, one man fetches it back to the road with a little tractor then upends it with a lift into the waiting trailers.
Last year the crew was all black.
This year again, the workers are small, leathery and mahogany brown, all of them dressed in long-sleeved shirts and blue jeans. With caps pulled low and tight, they spend the day sticking hands, arms, he and torsos into the prickly trees. I mention their color because farming here seems to be divided along race or ethnic lines. White people are owners.
Brown people and an occasional crew of black people, still, are field workers. Many are also illegal immigrants, people who avoid lengthy eye contact with drivers who slow to watch them work. Weve let them know that they arent welcome free chat with sluts at aab henderson arent supposed to be here.

And weve also let them know that if they dont show up, our harvest will likely go to hell. Or at least go somewhere besides the smooth economic pipeline that feeds the fruit and vegetables they harvest into stores we frequent or other stores worldwide, and funnels the money we spend into the pockets of store owners, shippers and growers.
The field workers get some money, too not much, but more than they can get at home, which is why theyre here. At harvest time, everybody seems comfortable with this setup which is patently ridiculous. Our state produces 90 percent of all the winter tomatoes consumed by Americans. Were second in the world only to Brazil in the quantity of orange juice we produce. But Florida agriculture is now in the nonsensical position of relying on lawbreakers on illegal immigrants and the people who knowingly hire them to work the fields.
Which makes the rest of us who like to eat a bunch of hypocrites.
While Americans import ificant amounts of perishables such as produce, fish and cut flowers, perhaps our most crucial agricultural import is illegal immigrants. In the Sunshine State, almost all of it comes up from the south, legal or illegal.

And not just up from Mexico, which is second only to Canada and just ahead of China as our biggest trading partner, but from a host of other nations as well: from Brazil, a powerhouse economy now. Almost all of the legal perishables come first to Miami, billed as the gateway to the Americas. But that billing could change, especially if some rich investors out in Hendry County get their way the deal-making is described in this weeks lead story.
They want to build an international cargo airport over an free chat with sluts at aab henderson county-owned airport and bring in perishables from the Americas that will ship north by truck and train. County officials are only too happy to sell the old airport cheaply, if thatll make the deal work the FAA has to approve it.
One of those officials is a lates native son named Commissioner Karson Turner.

Were trying to harness the already wonderful relationship the state has with Central and South America, he told me last week. God knows Hendry County needs to harness something; its the poorest county among Floridas 67, the only one still saddled with double-digit unemployment. And it also has to bear one of the highest rates of medically uninsured residents, both legal and illegal, in the United States.
But Hendry is surrounded by the states trade wealth. There is a direct correlation between the trade success Florida has had and the lack of enforced migrant laws, the commissioner explained. Those states punched big holes in their economies, creating massive headaches for growers. And for a while, it looked like Florida would follow suit. Our governor came out of the gate, and he had some major posturing comments, Commissioner Turner acknowledged. But at the end of day, he said, We have to embrace our relationship with Latin America. Thats a good thing and I applaud him.
But the governor didnt go far enough. In Hendry, the fourth-largest citrus-producing county in Florida, embracing our relationship with Latin America would mean getting farmworkers now harvesting the crop medically insured.
And that would have meant that Gov. Rick Scott and State Rep. Matt Hudson, a Republican whose District 80 includes Hendry, would have embraced Medicaid expansion, which covers those too poor to qualify for Affordable Care. But they didnt.

Instead, they ed other conservative state leaders to reject it, which meant surrendering millions of dollars already paid by Florida taxpayers to the federal government. It comes down to this: Sometime this century were going to have to quit playing jingoistic games, and free chat with sluts at aab henderson treating other Americans those who are not United States citizens like theyre our equals.

And when the Americas prosper en masse, then the United States will get stronger, too.
