Such a scenario would be very ugly for all of us------and, would likely lead to Mexico's demise as an independent nation.

You know - the number of illegals involved in ag is so low - I hear / see numbers that represent 1 / 2 percent of the total workforce (in Ag)

Other jobs (for instance fast foods) can easily be filled by seniors, college students, the 2nd jobber etc -

I've been to the fields here in California.. I don't think I saw one White American person there. All paisas. And don't you think those fast food jobs wouldn't be filled in already by mostly Americans? I know In-an-out doesn't hire illegals. I didn't see one Mexican worker there LOL.

I wasn't talked about McDonalds. I'm talking about In-and-out.

Did you ask them? Check them out??

Because, unless you did, and you may have, you cannot be assured like that.

One example: I spend lots of time in Carlsbad CA - they have some fantastic flower / veggie farms there - I have come to know the operators - this type of discussion has come up - I feel the operators were being very candid with me - they will not knowingly hire an illegal - they verify immigration status on each and every employee.

I do not believe anyone actually expects a mass deportation. So lets be real. Ideas please about what we can do about all the newly unemployed illegals after strict employer rules against illegals.
Any number of people have just told you what to do: send/ encourage them to go home. I am not sure what you are looking for here.
