Re: your Sept. 25 article, â€œRelying on immigrant labor,â€? part of the series, â€œFarming on the edgeâ€?:
I thank The Star for this informative article on immigrant labor. I wish everyone in the country could read it.
The farmers rely on immigrant labor, and that was what made the bracero program so attractive. The workers would come and make money and go home, not bringing their families with the children needing schooling, medical services, etc.
