We don’t have an immigration problem, we have a labor problem

Re: Devin Nunes’s Family Farm Moved to Iowa, Employs Undocumented Workers

The near total use of undocumented labourers is not news to anyone who’s ever lived in farm country.

All the bullshit about illegal immigration is really just about labor exploitation.

If a dairy farm would go out of business if it paid workers a real wage and stuck to real labor protections, then that dairy farm should fucking go out of business.

If we need those dairy farms for food security or want them for cultural reasons, then we ethically and transparently subsidize them.
