Bottom line is no one factor causes food and other costs to rise/fall. There are many factors of which many often overlook by choice or ignorance.
Well then don't claim that 40 million illegals here are keeping food prices very low when food prices were climbing very high in the past decade.

Food prices are generally higher than they've ever been. What were they in the early 80's before sky-high immigration?
