On the borderline:
|Farmworkers at the Mexicali - Calexico border in the early morning.|
Today, crossing the Mexicali / Calexico border on foot to work is something akin to torture and humiliation. I’d heard from workers about long waits in the mornings to cross, but until this past Monday, I hadn’t experienced it first hand. Here I’ll give an account of the morning (Monday, January 6) and I’ll fill in the picture with some notes from discussions with various people in the Mexicali-Calexico-Yuma area.
