Letter published in the LA Times 4/4 and how the Central Valley is impacted by Trump immigration policies

What irony that the president bites the very hand of the voters that supported him in the Central Valley.

California’s top three producing agricultural counties are Kern, Fresno, and Tulare. Trump won the 2016 vote in Kern and Tulare, and it was pretty close in Fresno. I’m pretty certain that it wasn’t the undocumented immigrants who voted for Trump, so it must have been the good citizens who benefit from all of that production that supported the anti-immigrant candidate in his bid for the White House.

Do you suppose all of those voters assumed Trump meant he would get rid of undocumented immigrants, just not the ones they need to harvest all of their crops? What short-sighted stupidity.
