In Washington state this year about 20% of the crops went unharvested because there was a lack of labor to harvest the crops. This is very probably because the number of undocumented workers entering the US has dropped to a net zero (i.e. the number of undocumented workers in the US has actually declined in the last two years). There are literally tens or hundreds of thousands of workers in foreign countries that would have loved to come to the United States to harvest these crops but were denied documentation so they could enter the country legally. That really makes no sense and Americans no longer want to do this work.
