I agree.
This is'nt even "the begining" of any illegal immigration solution.
Farm workers will only move or be moved to another job,
and most likely, eliminating more Legal workers.
Most already have.

I don't see any +'s for this on our side.

Given I have the time to do it, it is fine with me; I know the berries are fresh and who I got them from. however, I sure wouldn't want to do it for pay... at the end of the day I am quite sore ( however, that includes going home and making jam)
My respect for you. I love homemade strawberry jam or anything homemade.
I was raised on a Dairy Farm.

My point here is: If you were born and raised in an agriculture enviroment, as most illegals are, this type of work is one of the most simple jobs there is to do.

I don't know how far this robot will get with Corperate farming like "Knots Berry Farm" because it's too slow.

But the reasons for letting them in the back door keep changing too.

The latest is running from drug cartels. I don't think the framers of the Const. had that in mind?
