Description: Communities of working people that exist simultaneously in both the US and Mexico are older than the border itself. Before the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo took most of the US southwest from Mexico in 1848, placer miners -- gambosinos -- migrated between Sonora, Arizona and Alta California. Their descendents still live in both countries.
