This fund covers transportation and other costs directly involved in importing Mexican farmworkers (7 U.S.C. 1461-1468). Public Law 87–345 dated October 3, 1961, extends the authority until December 31, 1964.

Budget program. The program involves the recruitment, selection, and importation of Mexican workers for agricultural work on farms in the continental United States. Mexican workers recruited and selected by the Mexican Government are sent to three migratory stations in Mexico where they are examined for ability to do farmwork, screened for subversive activities, vaccinated, and transported to three reception centers in the United States where they are X-rayed, examined and treated for disease, and contracted to employers. This requires the establishment and operation of reception centers to provide housing, subsistence, and medical care. An estimated 191,000 Mexican farmworkers will be imported in 1964 and 95,000 in 1965 during the period July 1 through November 15, 1964, when contracting will cease.

Financing.–The costs of operation of this program are met by fees charged the employer for each worker contracted. The fees of $10 per worker initially contracted and $5 per worker recontracted were established January 1, 1960. The fee for recontracting was raised to $10 per worker effective February 1, 1962. These rates were increased to $15 per worker for both contracting and recontracting on July 1, 1962. The fees provide for the cost of importing workers and for State activities and for the serological testing administered by the Public Health

Operating results and financial conditions. The availability of funds in excess of direct charges for importing Mexican nationals will allow a net transfer of $520 thousand to Salaries and expenses, Mexican farm labor program.

This fund, established by the Employment Security Act of 1960 (74 Stat. 970), makes advances without fiscal year limitation to the employment security administration account in the Unemployment trust fund. The purpose of this fund is to finance the Federal and State administrative costs of the employment security programs on a repayable basis from the beginning of the fiscal year until the Federal unemployment tax receipts become available in February of the same fiscal year.

During 1963, the third year of operations, $173.5 million was advanced to the employment security administration account of which $169 million was repaid. The balance of $4.5 million will be repaid from tax receipts in 1964. In addition, the balance of the fund will be used

to finance the program in 1964 until the Federal unemploy125 ment tax receipts are received in February 1964. During

1964 about $257 million of the fund will be used to finance the program until the Federal unemployment tax receipts are received during February 1964.

This fund will be needed until the employment security administration account accumulates a carryover balance of $250 million. Earnings are retained to meet future requirements.
