A tomato grower of 30 years, Will Maxwell is getting ready for this year's crop. Will thinks President Bush's stance on immigration could be bad for business.

Bush says illegal immigrants are decent people who work hard and support their families. But he says illegal immigration puts a strain on local and state budgets and brings crime to our communities.

As it relates to the 6,000 National Guard troops heading to the U.S.-Mexico border, a spokesperson with the National Guard Bureau in Washington DC says the agency is looking at staffing options within those border states first.

But pulling troops from Florida and Georgia is not totally out of the question.
