Fedele W. Guthrie's Deportees: meaning? (57* d) Woody Guthrie's Deportees: meaning? 10 Jun 00

Can anyone help me understanding Woody Guthrie's song "Deportees" (also performed by Dubliners)? No problems with English language. But I think it is about a specific episode, and I don't know much about the Mexican immigration in Woody's times. So why and where peaches were rotting? Weren't there enough workers to pick them up? But I thought there were too many workers and too few peaches to pick in California! (But is the song about California?) Well, you got it, I didn't understand almost anything...
