Mexican workers await legal employment in the United States, Mexicali (Mexico)
Jobs at Stake--Scenes such as this last week at Mexicali, on border, may be repeated and intensified this week. Thousands
still seek to enter U.S. for farm jobs, but 14,000 now here must be repatriated back across border, under U.S.-Mexico agreement.
Crisis may result. When this photo was made a few days ago, U.S. Border Patrolmen, foreground, held back 9000 seeking U.S.
entry for work, admitted only 575 that day
