While the Obama administration was dumping illegal immigrant children in states like Nebraska, California, and Illinois last week, big-business interests in several states revamped their push for amnesty legislation and more guest-worker visas.

In Texas, which has been the epicenter of the crisis, business groups warned “that Congress’s failure to pass comprehensive immigration reforms could create a bigger long-term economic crisis,” according to the Houston Chronicle.

In South Carolina, business groups also pressed for the visa and guest-worker systems to be revamped.

“Our inefficient visa programs are creating a situation where we are educating the workforce of competing nations,” claimed the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce. “There’s still going to be an additional talent demand that can be filled through immigrants being able to stay here with a more effective visa program and go to work.”

Steven Mungo, the CEO of Mungo Homes, said he was “just an expert on the available workforce, and it’s inadequate.” He told the local ABC outlet that, “we just don’t have enough high quality workers available to us any longer to take care of the current need and certainly will not have it going forward.”
