3. The main reason produce prices have gone up is because Trump's immigration policies

have caused the immigrant farm workers who do the harvesting to be deported or to not come in the first place. So the produce is rotting in the fields, meaning what does get harvested is more expensive (and check the origins of that produce; a lot actually comes from Mexico). The farmers who are being harmed by the tariffs will not be adequately compensated (most of the money will go to big agribusiness), and many will go bankrupt and lose their farms. So if you think agricultural commodities are expensive now, just wait. But it isn't the farmers' fault.
