Title Letter from Alonso S. Perales to Watson Miller
Creator (LCNAF)
  • Perales, Alonso S., 1898-1960
Date November 24, 1947
Description Typewritten letter, carbon copy, by Alonso S. Perales as Director General of the League of Loyal Americans, dated November 24, 1947, to Watson Miller, Commissioner of Immigration in El Paso. In light of a labor conference being held between the United States and Mexico, Perales discusses the availability of workers, but not for the wage of “twenty-five or thirty-five cents per hour due to the high cost of living.” He argues agricultural workers should be paid “a minimum of sixty cents per hour in order to subsist.”
