Milking cows is a dirty, monotonous job, and as we found out in our latest episode of Immigrant America, it's not a job many unemployed Americans are willing to do. But for some reason the government doesn't give dairy farms a way to recruit foreign workers legally, so most feel forced to hire illegal immigrants. This makes the farms and their workers easy targets for immigration authorities looking to fill deportation quotas. We went to upstate New York to try to understand the cat and mouse game going on between dairy farms and immigration authorities. We found a lot of wasted taxpayer money, racial profiling, and a broken system that unnecessarily treats family farmers and hardworking immigrants like criminals.

Immigration is extremely controversial right now as the Trump administration is keeping preschool children in "tender age" detention centers.

Generally when you ask women or senior citizens or rich fags, if they want to do physical labor, they will of course generally say no. Ask a kid straight outta highschool, I guarantee you most will go do whatever to get paid.

Americans will do hard jobs. I'm a teenager and I would gladly do something like this. I work a dirty job at a car wash cleaning and crawling into compressors to clean vacuums. They won't give me a raise from $11 an hour because they say they can pay 'wetbacks' half my wage. They can find plenty of Americans to do entry level work I would gladly shovel poop for $14 an hour and maybe make better working benefits if you cant find people to do it legally.

I don't understand why people have problems with Mexicans. They are very hard working people who want to work , no matter what job, just to be able to take care of their families.

In Canada our produce farms are staffed by Mexican workers who come on temporary work visas. One farmer told me he’d go out of business without them so it’s not just an American thing.

Some food for thought. Why do we have millions of illegals working, taking jobs from Americans. Some people will say they are jobs Americans “won’t do”. Well we have millions of people in prison, rotting away. Why not have them work the fields and help society, instead of locking them away just to release them from the melting pot off shit, just to end up straight back. A side note- why does everything revolve around race? Is everyone a racist? Or is everyone just retarded?

Stop exploiting the migrants workers for cheap labor. Pay your employees what there worth. Stop looking for the cheap labor . Dont tell me there are no Americans that will do that job. That's a lie. Americans aren't in to being exploited. They know what a job is worth. And there not going to work for penny's on the dollar. The migrants have no choice. There trapped in a system that is unfair for them.and the farmer exploits the workers to make a profit on the backs of the workers. Farm work is hard work and long hours. Before sun up till after sun down. Most days.

Donald Trump is a New York City Nero.
He torches everything in his path and harvests the ashes.
He has always operated this way and continues to do so as president.
He is the Orange Mussolini LOCUST King leading a swarm of ravenously hungry locusts intent upon devouring our cherished democracy and economy.
He did not carry his own state in the presidential election. They knew him better.

It is only controversial because many Washington politicians and major media outlets are misrepresenting the facts and circumstances for selfish reasons. These farmers are forced to hire illegal immigrants because your agricultural department is not willing to put in legislation or regulations to combat the thinning of margins where farmers are forced to employ economies of scale and thus can no longer do it on a family level but have to hire many employees to run those scale size farms. How much of your production is dumped due to overproduction? And that is just for starter.
