The illegals have MANY kids. They sure don't want their kids to do that kind of work when they grow up, so the demand for illegals just continues. The only legal solution would be to raise the pay and make farm labor more attractive to legal citizens. I don't know how viable this would be though; probably not at all under present circumstances with price controls.

There is no need for that because as you said it is not a career job for most American anyway and for the obvious reasons. Let the farmers use the unlimited visas for their farm help but I suspect that they'd rather hire illegals because they can pay them less and work them harder.
