Believe it or don't, some supporters of illegal immigration are still trying to scare grocery shoppers with fantastic tales of overpriced veggies should illegal immigration ever stop.
Shoppers are encouraged to support corruption or be forced to spend $10 for a head of lettuce or be required to fork over $100 for a pair of artichokes. Soon, according to these illegal immigration supporters, a bushel of corn would cost more than a bushel of gold.
But, isn't there the possibility that grocery prices might even go down if there were many fewer illegal aliens? Wouldn't we increase imports of labor-intensive crops like strawberries, and wouldn't those crops come from countries with much lower costs of living than the U.S.?
Since many of the supporters of illegal immigration also extol the wonders of globalism, perhaps you could encourage them to think globally: instead of importing workers, let's just import strawberries.
