For over 20 years over 2.5 million of us worked as indentured servants on U.S. railroads and farms. 10% of our pay was withheld to be paid to us when we returned to Mexico. It never was. Now nobody will cop to where the $$$ are, so we are in the courts and on the streets in binational actions to get our $$$. Other URLs with information:
