I have followed up on my web site (I use my site because my ISP doesn't allow hot linking of pictures):


My conclusion:

I don't think INS apprehensions is the appropriate variable to compare with Bracero admissions. How well does INS apprehensions reflect illegal border crossings? How does the number of apprehensions vary with the level of effort of INS enforcement? How much legal immigration is replaced by Bracero admissions? The actual situation is much more complicated than is shown by the two marginally related curves in these charts.
