Locals are worried that there wont be enough for Mardi Gras to enjoy at their crawfish boils with friends and families. Farmers are worried that the influx of frozen crawfish might be detrimental to their sales of live crawfish.

Experts have recommended importing Chinese crawfish into the state in order to have enough for the Mardi Gras and Easter season. President Donald Trump commented today that because of stricter immigration laws, with would not be letting any more crawfish into the country. “No more Chinese immigrants, including crawfish. Bad deal! Won’t happen!” said the President.
