3. Does the state pay for the healthcare, etc. for farm workers or do

farm-owners/employers pay for the healthcare, etc. of the farmworkers.

California is not particularly anti-immigrant. In fact, we are a state with a huge number of immigrants. If the state is cracking down on migrant laborers, I'm wondering whether it might be part of its efforts to save money.

Maybe emergency room visits by migrant workers have become a bit expensive for the state budget?

I don't know. I'm just wondering. Also, who pays for the education of the children of migrant workers? That too may be coming out of the state budget in that some of California's school and public services costs paid in other states from local tax revenue are paid (at least in part) from state tax funds. California has been trying to get better balance in its budget in these tough time. Maybe our state just can't afford so many migrant workers any more.
