90% of California crop workers are immigrants

The estimates are that 40% are legal immigrants and 50% are illegal immigrants. “According to 2016 statistics from a U.S. Department of Labor National Agricultural Workers Survey survey, over 90 percent of California crop workers are immigrants, and half are unauthorized.”

However, Egan Reich, a Department of Labor spokesman, said the NAWS statistics do not track “farm workers." Instead, they examine crop workers, an important distinction.

The NAWS survey only tracks workers employed in crop-related facilities classified in the North American Industrial Classification System as Crop Production or as Support Activities for Crop Production — this includes farms, orchards, groves, greenhouses, and nurseries that are primarily engaged in growing crops, plants, vines, or trees and their seeds.

Excluded from these statistics are “persons employed at eligible establishments who do not perform crop-related work, such as secretaries or mechanics,” the report states. The NAWS survey does not keep statistics on “farm workers” as a whole.

While it may be a matter of semantics, it’s an important distinction. Philip Martin, a professor emeritus of agricultural and resource economics at University of California, Davis, highlighted the difference, pointing out that livestock workers could also fall under the broad definition of “farm worker.”

3. I believe that he is

California needs the farm workers and we could use the additional residents for the 2020 census for congressional/electoral apportionment.
Even a stopped clock is correct twice a day.

10. Except illegals are not supposed to be counted!

Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which
may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be
determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to
Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other
Persons. The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting
of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in
such Manner as they shall by Law direct. The Number of Representatives shall not
exceed one for every thirty Thousand, but each State shall have at Least one
Representative; and until such enumeration shall be made, the State of New Hampshire
shall be entitled to chuse three, Massachusetts eight, Rhode-Island and Providence
Plantations one, Connecticut five, New-York six, New Jersey four, Pennsylvania eight,
Delaware one, Maryland six, Virginia ten, North Carolina five, South Carolina five, and
Georgia three.

Courts have ruled that illegals are neither citizens nor considered free standing people in the US. but are people here without legal standing!

4. I'd be willing to pay slightly more so that citizens or 'green carders' had jobs.

11. The people of California are okay exploiting illegal immigrants

For their cheap labor, that’s why they are a sanctuary state.

12. How do they get to the farms?

What are the logistics of that and what areas do they have to pass through?
