WHAT HAPPENS WHEN DEPORTATIONS CUT FOLKS WHO WORK IN THE FIELDS PICKING LETTUCE, PEACHES, AND OTHER STUFF?

When Trump unleashed the Immigration and Customs Service and the Border Patrol on the undocumented, it seems as if there was an unintended consequence: the agricultural sector is hurting for folks to pick the fruits and veggies that get delivered to your local Safeway or Fresh Fields. See, even though all those Rust Belt Trump supporters want jobs, they don't jobs that an immigrant would do. No. They are much too good to slave for 10-12 hours a day under a blazing sun picking lettuce. But, hey, those all-criminal undocumented immigrants do make a good patsy for their woes so deport them anyway. But they won't even take the non-agricultural jobs that companies import H-2B visa holders for. What a very strange world it is!
