flag graphic  From picker to boss to land owner, generations of Mexican immigrants have worked their way to citizenship and prosperity in Washington's orchards and farms. As they leave the fields for better jobs, new immigrants enter the pipeline behind them, starting the cycle anew. First step on this economic ladder: workers, usually undocumented, who work in U.S. fields to feed their families back home. Crucial to this steady supply of farmworkers is the Mexican foreman. José Alejo, foreground on right, helps shepherd workers from his hometown of Pajacuarán, Mexico, into the orchard he manages in Manson, Chelan County. Here he visits with the orchard owners' son, Brooke Peterson, center, during Christmas holidays in Pajacuarán.
