Can't they just send a boat across to Victoria and round up some crop pickers?

How about they advertise here for millions of former visa holders who forgot to go home? They're everywhere, everywhere.

When I was a kid. All the young people picked the crops. Kids had to buy their own school clothes. If you wanted to buy the nice clothes and look cool, you had to work harder, pick faster.

Parents also picked crops, just to socialize with freinds and make a few extra bucks.

Keep deporting. The medical bills for ilegal aliens has made our state go broke. Its a losing situation for all tax payers. Our streets are also flooded with meth, cocaine and heroin, brought in by ilegal aliens. My kids ask me why the government allows this to happen to them ?

Most of their workers are standing around 7-11 and Home Depot. This is what happens when our immigration laws are not being enforced. They could raid the house on my street and find enough illegals to pick most everything in Washington.
These migrants have found it easier to pick our pockets than the crops they agreed to.

California is suffering the worst drought in it's history. So I truly doubt we will have water for crops, we have no money to buy homes so we will have no construction. With our deficit we will be cutting aid to programs so I think the illegal will say bye bye to California! Californians will say Adios! We will rebuild. Americans work through things we are survivors we don't run.
