Be careful what you wish for

With all the hoopla with folks supporting Donald Trump for president, folks need to realize that a Trump administration would be a catastrophe for California. Our state has the most illegal immigrants, and the San Joaquin Valley relies on them to do ag work, as well as other labor.

It is important to note that fewer Mexicans are coming illegally, and farmers are having a hard time finding workers to harvest the fields. Imagine ICE at most places where illegals – as well as their legal families work, shop and congregate.

Yes, many Americans would applaud this. They want illegals to stop taking their jobs and using up tax dollars, but the changes will be dramatic here in the Valley, where untold millions of dollars may be lost because people are unwilling to do the work that many illegals do.
