For two years now, we have held demonstrations all over the South, and one of the biggest cheerleaders for “comprehensive immigration reform” has been Big Ag, whether it onions in Georgia, tomatoes in Alabama, or citrus and blueberry farmers in Florida:
“Even before real-estate mogul Donald Trump called undocumented immigrants “rapists and murderers” who “have to go,” California contractor Carlos Castañeda was having difficulty hiring enough workers to pick celery and squash.
Now Castañeda and others fear Trump’s talk about erecting a “big beautiful wall” at the border and deporting millions could make it nearly impossible to find the guest workers they need — workers who would obtain legal status under most comprehensive reform bills. …”
California has the worst problem of all, but illegal aliens are also found in agriculture all over the Northwest.
