Illegal Immigrants Assisted After Citrus Crop Freeze

California's day laborers, many of whom are illegal immigrants from Mexico, and who work for citrus crop industries, will be offered assistance by the state of California in the form of food programs, temporary housing, low-income energy assistance and other social services.

None shall receive unemployment insurance.

If George W. Bush adheres to Governor Schwarzeneggar's request, more federal aid may also be made available for farm workers affected by the citrus crop devastation.
