President Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant comments and policies are beginning to hit farmers and ranchers hard, if one California farmer is any indication.

During a special on CNN, a reporter spoke with Joel del Boscaya, the son of Mexican migrants. He explained he couldn’t get any workers this year. The problem got even worse after the election when the talk of mass deportations began.
“That makes me nervous,” Boscaya said of Trump’s threats. “Putting a wall on the border, that makes me nervous.”

He went on to say that it affects his bottom line, “because we can grow the crops but not pick them.”

Check out this video clip where a Farmer talks about how the policy is affecting his bottom line.
