LOS ANGELES—On Saturday, October 12 at 3 pm at the Washington Irving Branch Library, historian Francisco Balderrama will be discussing his book Decade of Betrayal: Mexican Repatriation in the 1930s, and its pertinence to today’s immigration issues. Balderrama’s work explores the unconstitutional deportation of Mexican Americans during the Great Depression. During this forced removal, known as Repatriation, the U.S. government deported approximately 2 million people, 60% of which were U.S. Citizens and legal residents. Dr. Balderrama will be signing copies of his book afterwards.
