Veronica K. Clark - "Operation Wetback" vs. "The Transfer Agreement"

Audio CD, March 20, 2017
Historian Veronica K. Clark compares and contrasts Eisenhower's "Operation Wetback" (1954) and Hitler's "Transfer Agreement" (1933) with Radio Host Deanna Spingola.
Mexican migrants were invited into America to work since there was a “labor shortage” during World War II. They were underpaid, cheated out of their promised wages by numerous Anglo-American growers, and literally thrown out of the country when they were no longer needed. An untold number of these men died as a result of deplorable, unsanitary conditions on the farms as well as during the treacherous journeys home back to Mexico. Often they were robbed, exploited and even murdered by their own kinsmen in Mexico as they were dropped off in the desert near the U.S.-Mexican border and left to fend on their own without any supplies, water or food. The American government flew or shipped them out forcibly in 1954 in a massive forced deportation effort known as “Operation Wetback”.
Historians express their dismay about the numbers of Jewish people repatriated or deported against their will from Germany, but few appear aware of the numbers of Mexicans pressured and/or forced out of America after World War II ended.
