Illegal Alien Labor & Ecke Ranch
Ecke Ranch has always been a mecca for illegal aliens. When I was a little kid I remember riding my dirt bike on the trails of what is now the shopping center and seeing the large migrant worker camp.
I wonder how much money the Eckes have saved in tax free low cost labor over the decades?
I wonder how many of those illegal aliens ever received free medical care from Scripps at the taxpayer's expense?
I wonder how many of those illegal aliens committed petty to serious crimes against the legal citizens?
Is that how the Eckes became millionaires? By employing a cash under the table labor force?
We know one thing for sure, none of those workers were "coddled".
Yup, the Eckes are true local hero's
