I feel Jennifer Colton did an outstanding job in writing the article on immigration in Umatilla County.  It is a sad state of affairs that the illegal problem has come to this point.  I don't blame the children, but shame on the parents!  Jennifer is also correct about the unemployed not working in the harvests.  In some states they cannot even get the prison inmates to work.  Here in Oregon we give them picnics.  Our country needs to change and teach our children work ethics and stop relying on illegals to do our work.  Perhaps the Little Red Hen philosophy needs to be enacted.
