California unions claim that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) immigration raids across Northern California will destroy farmers by causing fruit to “die on the vine.”
President of the United Farm Workers of America Arturo Rodriguez has complained that last week’s ICE raids in Northern California, which led to widespread panic, is a threat to California’s agricultural industry.
His concerns were echoed by President of the Western Growers Association, Tom Nassif, who told Bloomberg that 75 percent of California’s 2 million farm workers are undocumented (illegal) aliens.
The union’s supposed outpouring concern for business came after it was reported that the Department of Justice is investigating Democrat Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf for tipping off illegal aliens through the media to suppress the effectiveness of ICE raids.
