TIME Magazine, "The Peril Grows"

Description
This March 22, 1982 issue of TIME Magazine has a cover story on “The Peril Grows: Central America's Agony, A U.S. Dilemma.” Political and economic instability in Latin America drove many people to the United States. The federal government also stimulated this migration with policies like the Bracero Program (1941–64), which encouraged Mexicans to fill temporary U.S. jobs in agriculture and other low-wage fields. By 1995, 24 percent of the 760,000 U.S. apparel workers were of Hispanic origin.
