43 year-old Jorge Calderon from Camargo, Chihuahua is a legal guest worker at The Arapahoe Acres Nursery in Denver. He works at the nurser for 9 months out of the year, thanks to the H2B work visa that he holds. There are only a few cities in Mexico which can offer the applications for this visa, so every year he needs to re-apply for the visa and travel hundreds of miles to either Nogales, Sonora, or Tijuana, BC, in order to place his application. The nursery relies heavily on this guest worker program, for the labor-intensive work that is needed for planting, caring and harvesting of the pines, flowers and vines that they sell.
