Susan Ferriss of the Sacramento Bee had a good in-depth piece earlier this week on the dilemma that a crackdown on illegal immigrants presents to farmers in California. I invited her onto my show this afternoon to explain it, including the bureaucracy that’s already such an obstacle that many growers find easier to ignore it so that they can bring in enough people to pick their crops. Interestingly, many of these farmers are staunch Republicans who find themselves on the other side of the issue from the politicians they usually support.
