Build that wall- AgriRobots to the rescue!
Better than wasting time on self-driving trucks to kill people on streets and highways, technology is finally being applied to an area of great need: Agri-Robots are being developed and some deployed to pick the fruits and vegetables that farmers complain they need illegal criminals to pick for them.

Now here's an area where applying technology to replace human workers would help npt only reduce costs and increase efficiency, but once you have robots in place the argument for temporary work visas as well as demand for illegal immigrant workers drops or is eventually eliminated--all very good things. Once illegals have no jobs to do here, less will stay and less will come.
