A full three quarters of farmworkers in the U.S. are migrants and many are here illegally. Add in food service, meat processing, and the ancillary industries that feed the food business and you’re talking about a LOT of foreign-born workers who work to put food on America’s table. Is the migrant crisis we’re witnessing on our nation’s southern border a crisis for Ag? Or is it a net benefit? The upside to having several million people walking into our country: Possible new pool of workers (unless they’re economically un-incentivized!), new customers, and possible economic contributors (in the longer term). The downside: Criminality and a drain on resources. American Agriculture has — for a very long time — imported foreign-born workers to harvest the produce, milk the cows, and cut the meat. Is it what’s happening now different? More importantly, is the current situation a crisis or a benefit for Ag?
