Part 3

Frankie L King's insight:

When WWII started the US became strict on their immigration laws. After the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, the US discriminated against the Japanese. The US gov had moved them to their own area. The Japanese didn't know why they had to move. The US did provide for them. But, they crammed the Japanese into houses. Four to Five families were in one house. It was very crowded. While this was happening, Mexicans were hopping over the US border. Since the US was officially in the war, the US factories needed workers. So, the us gov came up with the Bracero Act. Which let Mexicans works until 1964, when the act was abolished. Thats what has been happening in America during WWII.

Bracero Treaty

Frankie L King's insight:

Bracero was a treaty made between the US and Mexican gov. The treaty was made because there was a shortage of american workers. This was because the workers had gone off to war. So, the US factories needed workers who would work for low pay to produce supplies for the war. This act was only temporarily. Only 4.6 million mexicans came over for work. But, this program ended the year of 1964. (primary source)

Frankie L King's insight:

Mexican immigration is the the largest immigration group in the world. Mexicans are the biggest and most common immigrants going to america. Bracero help get mexicans jobs. Kids and students were the most common. The mexicans were lo skilled workers. Many tried coming across but sadly most didn't make it. When they found jobs, they were paid very little.

Immigrants arrived in the US illegally. They get here in channels. 50% of them are girls. Texas is a big immigrant state. Texas has more than 1.7 million immigrants. When mexicans come over they all mostly have made a home in the US.

Frankie L King's insight:

The start of immigration really started when the japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. US became very prejudice towards the japanese. So the gov. moved all the Japanese Americans to their own reservations. They didn't trust them. Four to Five families lived in one house. The US  would supply them though. The Japanese didn't even know why they had to go. (primary sources)

Frankie L King's insight:

Mexicans and immigration has been a great part of american history. They come to get a better life. they try and find jobs to help and support their family. But, they cant  pursue that because of deportation. Treaty of Guadeloupe kinda helped the mexicans. Crossing was very dangerous.
