Irony and Nuts

While the Governor Elect mandates taking away drivers licenses from undocumented workers I couldn't help but notice that New Mexico's Pecan Farmers are reaping record prices for their crops because of a great demand from China.  Up to $3 a pound still in the shell!  Now, if I were a betting man I would wager that most of those Pecan orchards in the Governor elect's home county were tended to by those same undocumented workers.  I wonder what will happen to the workforce in Dona Ana County when Susana no longer lets these people drive to work.  Will the growers or some other group be forced into hauling around these migrant workers in violation of the law?  And not just during harvest time but irrigation season and pruning season and everything else that it takes to grow great New Mexico Pecans.
