Simple fact that a lot of people don't acknowledge. However one feels about immigrants, illegal or otherwise, our economy can't function without them. They pick crops. In cities they often make up most of the food delivery workforce. No, Americans aren't going to do these jobs.

Farmers could not find labor, regardless of pay, for the backbreaking work.
