Trump Crackdown on Illegal Aliens Forces California Farmers to Turn to Technology


Ever since the Trump administration restarted the enforcement of U.S. immigration law — enforced sparingly under the Obama administration — California farmers have been complaining about a labor shortage.

A state mandated $15 minimum wage and overtime pay for farmworkers isn’t helping California famers, who are already overburdened by so many new regulations every year.

Farmers whose business model makes them largely dependent on laborers who illegally enter the United States for work are upset over the change.

“If we can’t change the way we’re doing business, we’re at risk,” said Brad Goehring, a fourth-generation wine grape grower in Lodi said in an interview with Sacramento’s local CBS affiliate, CBS 13.

Tim Donnelly’s New book:  


This book tells the story of Tim Donnelly, a small-town kid, born in the South, raised in the Midwest, who took on California’s corrupt political establishment, and won the hearts of the people. Like David facing Goliath, you won’t believe how Tim winds up in the middle of almost every major political battle–always fighting for the little guy. This book takes you on a tumultuous journey, from the Valley of the Shadow of Death and brink of despair, to the mountaintop where faith, family, and friendship weather unpredictable success and epic battles, only to be engulfed again in a massive, protracted fight for California’s top seat–which reveals the real character of many of the GOP elitists. Donnelly’s new book exposes some startling facts about some of the biggest names in the political establishment, and reveals how his gubernatorial bid served as a preview for the treatment Donald Trump would receive by many of the very same people. Patriot Not Politician:  Win or Go Homeless will warm your heart, inspire you, and restore your hope that one man, one voice can make a difference–even in politics.

Nothing was wrong with the old “Brucerro” program. If you wanted to return to that program you’d have to eliminate the farm workers union to do so. You know, the union that Chavez created?

There was a time when “seasonal workers” came here from Mexico to harvest crops. When they were finished, they went back to Mexico with more money than they’d have made working in Mexico. Everyone was a winner, including the consumer and taxpayer.

Now, we have a permanent underclass that only benefits politicians that need a permanent underclass in order to get elected.
