Thread Name: Origin: Plane Wreck At Los Gatos (background)
Subject: RE: Help: Plane Wreck At Los Gatos

According to the contemporary reports that I read, the Mexican deportees aboard the ill-fated flight comprised two groups. Some were braceros whose contracts had recently expired and were simply returning home, while others were those who had overstayed their work contracts and were in the USA illegally. That's why Woody wrote "Some are illegal and some are unwanted..." He got it right.
