Written in 1951 by president of the National Farm Labor Union, Hank Hasiwar, in order to alert the patriotic public that there were members of the U.S. Congress who felt quite comfortable betraying American farm workers:

"The House Agricultural Committee is on record as favoring the importation of 400,000 laborers from Mexico, Jamaica, the Bahamas and South America... U.S. Senator Clinton Anderson (D-NM) made a strenuous attempt to flood the farming areas with hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals to be brought in at great expense to the taxpayers in order to provide cheap labor for the farm owners."

As the years passed, Hasiwar was succeeded by Ernesto Galarza, who in turn was succeeded by another, and on and on - each one more frustrated than the one who came before, each of them recognizing that labor unions cannot be built when a cheaper pool of workers is arriving every day. Clinton P. Anderson retired from public service in 1973; by then Washington was filled with similar visionaries who passed identical legislation. These officials were followed by numerous politicians who would simply refuse to enforce any laws that interfered with the flow of cheap labor across the border.
