Don't weep for farms losing illegal immigrant labor
Your recent article, "Labor shortages plague farms," (July 7) states the plight of American farmers. What it does not address is that these farmers have become so accustomed to breaking the law to get cheap labor that they think they have a right to it. For decades they have been hiring illegal immigrants to get an unfair advantage over those who choose to abide by the law or have such small operations that they do not hire non-family members.
