did not labor in the fields. The sun was

to be. Pura Latina is an expression of pride in
accepting one's heritage, of combating the
Caucasian values and norms imposed on
The two milagros reproduced here record the
dangers encountered by illegal aliens
seeking work in the USA, as when crossing
the Rio Grande into Texas and again when
returning home with cash in their pockets.
