Isidro Gutierrez (cq) from the state of Guadalajara, Mexico has been living and working in the United States for over 12 years. He is a legal resident and works at The Arapahoe Acres Nursery, in Denver which employs a dozen legal guest workers for the labor-intensive work that is needed for the planting, caring and harvesting of pines, flowers and vines that they sell. Mr. Gutierrez takes a break from his work of tending the trees at the nursery. Economist Tucker Hart Adams says failure to provide businesses with a means to employ thousands of legal guest workers filling vacant positions could result in an economic downturn in the state. Hardest hit will be nursuries, and hospitality businesses. Her comments today come as the Senate drove a stake Thursday through President Bush's plan to legalize millions of unlawful immigrants, likely postponing major action on immigration until after the 2008 elections.
