Take a drive up the 101 Freeway North in California, and you'll notice something striking.

You really think we need 11 -30 million illegals to pick our produce???? And what do they do When they are not picking produce ??? Few illegals were ever working on farms . Farms also have machines that pick . Im thinking school kids. just who picked it before the illegals invaded??? They have only been here in mass since 1986 . At that time we only had a few million.

We don't. The employers have a number of "guest worker" programs for AG jobs. They come, they pick, and like any guest they leave.

Guest worker programs are all bullshit. The damned farmers won't make the capital investment to buy the proper machines and use we tbacks instead, just like slaves. There are machines that can do anything a we tback can do...picking, planting, sorting, even separating chicken parts, but they are expensive.(Allow me to restate my comment about machines doing anything a tback can do: they are still working on developing machines that can lie, cheat and steal a well a they do, also drive drunk and kill innocent Americans.) In Holland, where I once lived, they use American-built machines in the fields. Not a we tback in sight. We need to round up and deport these vile vermin. They literally are USELESS. Don't believe me? Why is the Mexican government allowing them to leave if they have ANY value at all?

Farmers market , go to farms that will let you pick your own . Grow your own. Americans used to work in the city and have farms at home in the country . Money and food . Now we have to pay for everything . Price goes up. Many resterants have their own farmers so they have foods made the way the want . ie Mac Donalds don't buy food there . Its gross.

Maybe, instead of letting their crops rot, they should raise the wages for their workers and give Americans those jobs. This is all about slave labor for these farmers. If they would pay a wage that a person can support himself on and they would get plenty of workers. Anyway, I'm sick of paying for their slaves housing, food, medicine and education, just to mention a few things.

The apple farmers that have orchards where I live just put an add in the paper recently for pickers for the fall crop. Where I live a job's a job for most people that don't have one and that's lots of local people. The apples always seem to make it to the markets so I guess someone is picking them.

Excessive rains rotting crops in Southeastern U.S.
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18563_162-5759664...
On Thursday, just one conveyor belt was in use. Usually there are four. A food economist told us shoppers can expect fruit and vegetable prices to be at least 10 percent higher in the fall.

"We're here to make money -- all of us," Wilcher said. "The workers you see here, the truck drivers hauling this stuff out of here ...it affects everybody."

I grow the produce I enjoy. I will pay 50 cent's more for a head of lettuce rather than pay more money for my healthcare premiums so illegals can enjoy free healthcare. Today an illegal in Utah that had been deported was arraigned for killing a newlywed in Orem Utah. She was sitting on her driveway and a drunk driver illegal hit her and killed her.... We keep this up and we won't need produce. The real pickers are sponsored by farms and receive temporary work visa's too pic cops. Mexicans don't want to pick anything anymore, they've learned our system of welfare freebies and run drug's while collecting EBT and welfare for anchors.

Most of the equipment your talking about cost thousands, and thousands of dollars, farmers don't have that kind of money, plus the undocumented is more dependable than any equipment and the farmer gets more produce per acre using the undocumented.

What the hell is an undocumented? You must have meant illegal aliens. Doesn't matter the farmers nor any other employers have the right to hire ILLEGAL ALIENS. It is against the law!!

The undocumented worker has so many more skills than most Americans. Your future doctors, lawyers, teachers will be Hispanics.

They aren't undocumented they are illegal aliens. Get that thru your thick skull! Quit trying to sugar coat it. You can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig!

Yeah, sure these millions of unskilled, poor and uneducated with a 2nd grade education are going to be our future doctors, lawyers, etc. Who do you think you are kidding? They have more skills than Americans? Is this some kind of joke? Get the hell out of my country you invader!
