" Operation Wetback"
In 1942, millions of americans were sent to fight in war. The government needed cheap labor so they let hispanics in the U.S.. Some people called this , "legalized slavery." It wasn't to long when in 1953 when the government launched, Operation Wetback." This was basically the government kicking out Hispanics out of the country. More than 3.8 million people were deported back to Mexico, with a lot of those people being American Citizens.

Latinos and Hispanics didn't just sit back and watch as they were being kicked out. It started 1960, when there fight for equality became more visible. A big impact on this was Cesar Chavez. Chavez started a boycott in 1965 on grape growers who exploited Latino and Hispanic workers.
Mexican discrimination has been around since 1848 which was the end of the Mexican- American War. Mexicans were also treated like dirt. They were put in separate facilities and the schools were underfunded.
