Deportation of Mexican-Americans During the 1930s

During the Great Depression, anywhere from one to two million people were deported in an effort by the government to free up jobs for those who were considered "real Americans" and rid the county governments of "the problem." The campaign, called the Mexican Reparation, was authorized by President Herbert Hoover.

Estimates now indicate that approximately 60 percent of the people deported were children who were born in America and others who, while of Mexican descent, were legal citizens.

Why is this never taught in American schools? I have to find out about this
through Youtube? Why is it also hidden that Hispanic schools were worse off
during the segregation era than even black schools? This information must
be spread and I thank you for putting this video up.

Even to this day with have no RESPECT, you can see that in main stream
media and through out America. We are not being represented very well in
this country, groups like MALDEF (Mexican American Legal Defense and
Education Fund), LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens) are
nothing but a joke and are there to look good for themselves. Read about
Dr. Hector Garcia and you will see what he really stood for

i have some mexican friends and i want to show them this video to stop
calling me an arab "terrorist" and support u.s gov lol unfortunately u.s
gov showed a bad pic of arabs in latin world, at the beginning of our
friendship they were scared of me even their parents kept telling them to
stay away from me and i was like wtf. what u.s did was personally effecting
me as an arab and muslim. but im gonna tell a story that i have never told
to anyone, when i was at age 9, i was use to scare of the air plane sounds
and i go to the window to see if its israeli or u.s air force, it was cuz
of what i see happens in Palestine. that's what it's called terrorism, when
9 years old kids is terrorised. wake up people, i wish if all people unite

AWW! the ignorance in you is so sad. The fact that everybody's ancestors
had to have immigrate here at one point, accept if you were Native
American, makes you sound hypocritical. Also, almost half the land here was
once a part of Mexico. And their children would also be consider Mexican
American too stupid, not Mexican citizens.

our ancestors were here hundreds of years before the white man came along
and claimed our lands, now it's us that are illegal? who are the ones that
are illegal here? my greatgrandmother belonged to the kikapoo tribe, my
grandmother was born in Eaglepass in 1897 was she illegal? at one time the
border was opened no legal papers required, do you have legal papers, OH!
if your parents don't then you are illegal too! or maybe your great
ansestors were illegal? than you a are illegal.

Horace Greeley editor of the New York Tribune, was opposed to the war. He
wrote, “People of the United States! Your Rulers are precipitating you into
a fathomless abyss of crime and calamity! Why sleep you thoughtless on its
verge, as though this was not your business . . . ? Awake and arrest the
work of butchery ere it shall be too late to preserve your souls from the
guilt of wholesale slaughter!”

John L. O'Sullivan, a vocal proponent of Manifest Destiny, later
recollected: “ The regulars regarded the volunteers with importance and
contempt ... [The volunteers] robbed Mexicans of their cattle and corn,
stole their fences for firewood, got drunk, and killed several inoffensive
inhabitants of the town in the streets.

U.S. soldiers' memoirs describe cases of scalping innocent civilians, the
rape and murder of women, the murder of children, the burning of homes, and
the desecrating of Catholic religious objects and buildings. One officer's
diary records: “ We reached Burrita about 5 pm, many of the Louisiana
volunteers were there, a lawless drunken rabble. They had driven away the
inhabitants, taken possession of their houses, and were emulating each
other in making beasts of themselves.”

Representative Joshua Giddings led a group of dissenters in Washington D.C.
He called the war with Mexico "an aggressive, unholy, and unjust war," and
voted against supplying soldiers and weapons. He said: In the murder of
Mexicans upon their own soil, or in robbing them of their country, I can
take no part either now or here-after. The guilt of these crimes must rest
on others. I will not participate in them.

John Quincy Adams Another issue on which he was most combative was his
opposition to the Mexican War. It was on this issue about the Mexican War
that John Quincy Adams’ final vote in Congress was cast. There were many
others, including Congressman Abraham Lincoln, also opposed to the war.
John Quincy Adams also voted “no” in 1848 when a measure was called that
commended veterans of recent battles to that still ongoing war.

Congressman Lincoln and some of his fellow Whigs had a very different
opinion of the president, Manifest Destiny, and the war. Lincoln believed
that Polk had started the war based on a lie.On two notable occasions,
Lincoln questioned Polk regarding his motives for going to war. Upon
addressing the president, Lincoln said: "Let the President [Polk] answer
the interrogatories I proposed. Let him answer fully, fairly, candidly. Let
him answer with facts, and not with arguments.

Representative Rovert Toombs "This war is nondescript.... We charge the
President with usurping the war-making power... .. with seizing a
country... which had been for centuries, and was then in the possession of
the Mexicans.... Let us put a check upon this lust of dominion. We had
territory enough, Heaven knew" 

Автор Ger Vas ( назад)
Many Northerners believed that Polk, a Southerner, was trying to gain land
for the slaveholding South. Other Americans simply thought it was wrong to
use war to take land from Mexico. Among those was Second Lieutenant Ulysses
S. Grant .He would later call the war "one of the most unjust ever waged by
a stronger against a weaker nation. It was an instance of a republic
following the bad example of European monarchies, in not considering
justice in their desire to acquire additional territory."

" AMERICA " has border laws if these laws are breached than shouldnt your
right to be protected under such laws as well be denied ??? Why should our
laws apply to those who had a blatant disregard for them to begin with ???
If you enter our country illegaly that makes you a CRIMINAL, that is the
truth sorry you cannot grasp that concept due to your ignorance. "ANCHOR
LAW " is a blaring misuse of the 14th amendment that needs to be addressed
to reflect AMERICAN CITIZENS and not illegal criminals

Why is it that European-Americans feel that their ancestors never broke any
immigration law? Hmmm....I guess back then maybe the immigration laws were
pretty lax when it came to Europeans immigrating to America. There were no
laws to break.

i just want to leave this comment to remind all Americans that they are
here in the US only because they broke the law against their own nation. i
truly don't think you should judge in the way you do. As if the patriarchs
did not violate the laws of another country just to form this one. As if
you dont realize that most of these people are discriminated against. yes,
they broke the law, but its not like you've never done it

Whats funny all these dumbass people on here saying that these mexican
americans who were deported in the 1920's are children of illegals when in
fact these people who were deported are children and grandchildren of
mexicans who were already in the southwest before it was even part of the
united states. according to the treaty of guadalupe all mexicans living in
the southwest automatically became us citizens. So how were they illegal?

If a person is here illegally, they should be deported. If they have
children, they should go with the parents. They are only "U.S. citizens"
through the current misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment. Their parents
came here unlawfully and thus were under Mexican jurisdiction as citizens
of that nation. Their children are also Mexican citizens, and must go back
with their parents.
