California farmers are worried they might run out of illegal immigrants to exploit. According to the Sacramento Bee, a panicked delegation from the California Farm Bureau Federation delegation hurried to Washington, D.C. for meetings with Republicans on capitol hill.
Feigning to be there to help the “Dreamers”, the pitch was noting more than a plea to allow farmers to continue to exploit mostly Mexican, mostly undocumented immigrants.
The state’s farm lobby objects to just about anything short of completely open borders.
Farmers don’t want a ny controls on work visas. They do not want the online e-verify system, and they don’t want ICE to deport people who are here illegally.
All of these issues cut into their bottom line.
