President Donald Trump’s misguided approach to the border problem and undocumented aliens has created economic havoc with small businesses, especially agricultural businesses, across this country.
These businesses depend on a labor force that is provided only by temporary guest workers. Remove this workforce, as Mr. Trump has done, and the crops — peppers, fruits, vegetables — sit and rot in the fields.
American workers will not take these jobs or are not there to take these jobs. Why would American workers transfer to a job that pays minimum wage level? They won’t. To promote his policy of “fear of the other,” he is willing to wipe out a lot of small business in this country.
