Putting Americans to work in the fields (like that'll ever happen) at two times or even three times the current wages will put most farmers out of business. And the ones that aren't put out of business will increase produce prices to a point that it'll be a luxury.
You're putting this on the government's shoulders when it's really the American people who don't want to perform this labor. We have become a population of selective workers. Why else would this country (and my company who will even train you) have a job surplus?
What you're describing is a socialistic society.
I'm focused in on this like a laser beam, dog. I'm just having a hard time getting you to give up your slave loving, corporate welfare supporting, America hating ways. By the way, I just got back from the farms I work and I'm as Gringo as they come. It's a great job if they pay you enough to live on.

I not only run two farms, but I also have a vineyard and I make wine. How can you say you don't hate this country when you badmouth its workers and prefer to employ lawbreakers. How is subsidizing illegal alien employers with taxpayer money "the American way" Oh, I forgot. You're the guy who pretends to know something about the market economy. Doesn't corporate welfare distort markets?

I've never heard of pimps or drug dealers being political. I suppose they can be described as being "extreme capitalists". Kinda like Mitt or The Donald, I suppose. That would put them closer to the Republican party, yes?

I'm a practical realist.

Illegal immigrant farmworkers and legal migrant farmworkers are two different scenarios. I work from Georgia's migrant farmworker experiment model. Neither local nor parolee labor worked for them. What makes you think that any farmer in this country would be willing to pay more for local labor for less production? If you believe that, you really don't understand modern agriculture logic. Stating that Americans won't perform this field labor at what they pay current migrant labor now is not bad-mouthing Americans - it is being realistic.

As I said, I'll continue to pay for legal migrant farm labor to put moderately-priced produce on my table. Most of the population of the US pays for it now - does that make everyone a non-American? Your logic is skewed.

Pimps and drug dealers depend on public defenders which are a huge Democratic constituency. Stop playing dumb when people tell you your party is lawless. Face it, anything goes with you slackers.

The current pay is wrong dude. Americans will do any kind of work if the wages will allow them to live. Of course, it doesn't help that Democrats pass laws that make it more profitable to not work. So they encourage our workers to not seek work and at the same time, they allow slave wages to be paid to illegal aliens. This is the worst type of corporate welfare because it is killing our job market. It's an enormous perversion of our market economy.

Your biased thinking is still wrong, dude.

You do realize what it takes to pass a law, right? It takes a majority vote in your Republican-controlled Congress - only then is it passed on to the POTUS for approval. In the 112th Congress the U.S. House of Representatives, Republicans hold the majority with 242 seats. The Democrats have 193 seats. I would be writing to my Congressman instead of complaining, fruitlessly, on a public forum.
