Fortune: California Crops Rot as Immigration Crackdown Creates Farmworker Shortage

Fortune reports that a shortage of migrant workers is resulting in lost crops in California, triggering losses of more than $13 million in two California counties alone. Farmers say they're having trouble hiring enough people to work during harvest season, causing some crops to rot before they can be picked. The ongoing battle about U.S. immigration policies is blamed for the shortage. The vast majority of California's farm workers are foreign born, with many coming from Mexico through the acquisition of an H-2A visa. However, recent research indicates that more Mexican nationals are exiting the United States than entering. Read this story and more in AILA's daily immigration news clips.
