Caption
CALEXICO, CA - MARCH 27: A man wears a white plastic bag on his head to better resemble industrial pollution foam in the New River, reportedly the most polluted river in the U.S., in order to prevent detection by U.S. border patrol agents after crossing the U.S./Mexico border on March 27, 2005 near Calexico, California. He was later arrested and deported by border agents as were the others in his group of six. Agents will not go into the contaminated water because of its toxic chemicals, raw sewage, and 43 diseases reported to be in it but follow the floating immigrants until they come ashore. As security is tightened on the US/Mexico border, both illegal immigrants who fill important low-wage jobs in the US, and the dollars from people living in Mexico that have recently fueled development in economically-depressed Calexico, California, may all but cease. In 1995, the launch of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA brought a two-way trade boom between the US and Mexico). Since the 9/11 terror attacks, the Bush administration has set forth efforts to tighten security to prevent terrorists or their weapons from crossing the border, an effort that could slow commerce.
