This colored slide shows a Mexican "Bracero" picking Valencia oranges near a grove in Santa Ana, California. A "bracero" was a farm laborer from Mexico who was contracted on a temporary basis, during World War II, between the Mexican and the United States government to assist with the labor shortage in the U.S. . After the war the "Bracero Program", as it was commonly referred to, continued among the two countries until it formally ended in 1964.
