Note to User
Bracero workers were subject to inhumane conditions, including invasive health procedures and overcrowded processing centers, during Immigration and Naturalization Services screening processes for the Bracero Program. Many of the workers depicted in the immigration documentation from the Henry P. Anderson papers are unnamed and it is unclear if the photographs were taken consensually. We ask that users respect the lives of these individuals, their descendants, and their communities.
