South Texas farmers contact- ed said they figured the Mexi- can action would only mean more wetbacks crossing the- bor- der than ever.

Hull insisted the Neu- tral Nations Re- patriation Com- mission has the "solemn obliga- tion" to hold on to them until Sat- urday and then let them go as civilians.
