Title

Braceros wait in line to board buses at the Monterrey Processing Center, Mexico.

Description

At the Monterrey Processing Center, braceros line up to board the buses. The side of the buses read "Transportes Monterrey Saltillo S.A. de C.V.". These buses from Mexico will transport braceros to another processing center near the U.S.-Mexico border. Nadels Photos show the Hidalgo Processing Center, Texas as the next stop for becoming a bracero. Braceros also traveled by freight train from the Monterrey Processing Center, Mexico to the Mexico-U.S. border at Hidalgo. By train, the 150-mile journey took eight hours.
