It's been 27 years since Anastasio de Jesus kissed his wife goodbye, cast a wistful glance at his hardscrabble farming village and set out for Mexico City, seeking his dreams in the main Zocalo square, behind a painted sign reading "Mason." Toiling at day jobs, he eventually sent for his wife and gradually achieved his ambitions. A handsome brood of nine children. A city apartment. And a farmhouse with four bedrooms--six if you count the cattle feed rooms.

At a time when unemployment rates remain high in the United States, the massive use of illegal aliens in the state's fields presents a dilemma for the United Farm Workers Union as it pursues a new boycott against California table grape growers.

William E. Dannemeyer.

Ever since the Zapatista army arose in Chiapas to fight for the human rights of the indigenous peoples of Mexico, the general living conditions of the nation's natives have worsened. They are the victims of their own demographic explosion, the pauperization of the countryside, the devastation of their environment and the economic crisis ravaging the country. The native peoples are realizing they cannot earn a living in their home states; many are being forced to migrate.

Housecleaners and nannies may be harder to find and more expensive to hire. Building contractors may find themselves overwhelmed with new record-keeping responsibilities.
