Immigration Least of Farmer's Worries

Let's tackle that issue. Let's go to a High School, Take the top 10...oh heck, let's make it top 20% of the students and ask them what jobs they'd want.
Now, I haven't actually taken this survey, but I'm pretty sure that very small numbers would consider the career of....working the fields, fast food or cleaning. I'm sure that construction would rate pretty low as well.

I'll go out on a limb and say that you don't work any of these fields (no pun intended). The beauty of being a US citizen is knowing that you are totally capable of working one of these jobs. Now, I've posed this question before and have heard nothing. How many illegal (those coming from south of the controversial border wall) immigrants are working in the US as C-level executives? Engineers? Doctors? or any other position that pays 6 digits? I guess Americans would rather strive for these jobs than for one at Target...go figure. Honestly, when I make 6 digits a year, I don't think I'll care too much who picked my tomato or who sold me my shirt.

Council Playing Politics With Winter Homeless Shelter?

I think it's worse than a simple case of nimby-ism (e.g. where to place a new landfill), it's when people move to a location that HAS a reputation then complain about it.

Pacific Beach to complain about alcohol consumption,
College area to complain about college students,
and East Village to complain about the homeless population

I think people should have to sign a waiver of where ever they move to that they accept the 'character' of the territory they are moving to or be forced to leave.
