Not many farmers left. Conglomerates mostly. Small and medium farmers have been committing suicide at appalling rates over the past two years and the farming stimulus package, wasn’t. .
Over aggressive ICE has been tearing up farms by invading immigrant communities doing mass deportations, leaving farms without workers.
I’ll thank a farmer, if I can find one.
This is RIGHT next door to me. ICE had never been here before. Our local Sheriffs are deputized to do the work when there’s a problem such as violence (beyond bar fights and stupid stuff) where an undocumented worker should be deported.
Fed boots should stay out of this. Deputize local police like they did here and allow them to do it under their discretion. Zero tolerance is bad policy.
