Transcript: US leaders during the decade THANK YOU! "Our language is the reflection of ourselves . A language is an exact reflection of the character and growth of its speakers" A major invention we still use today is colored T.V "Humanely Done" In this event operation wetback was created and used in 1954. Dwight Eisenhower launched it to remove thousands of undocumented workers. Mostly mexican nationals. 4,800 people were arrested on the first day. By the end of the day 1.3 million were deported. This included abuse of children and separating families. The term "Wetback" was applied to Mexicans who swam across Rio Grande River. That is today called "Ethnic Slur". This deportation lasted only a couple of months sending now 2.1 million Mexicans.

Operation Wetback could be used less violently and more fairly but trump decides not to, This can have negative affects in our future.

"Operation Wetback" Donald Trump is planning on reviving Operation Wetback. Immigration today has increased and trump is planning to build a wall and remove immigrants "humanley done" Trump said in his interview that "force them because we give them a fortune, Mexico makes a fortune because of us. A wall is a tiny little peanut compared to that. I would do something very severe unless they contributed or gave us the money to build the wall." Enrique Pena Nieto responded in saying trump is ignorant and he will not pay him to hurt his people unfairly. "mexicans in the U.S. work with passion,they do their jobs well, Sanchez said. Since 2008 Our federal government still hasnt made an agreement on immigration today. 1950s background "Operation Wetback" Operation Wetback was launched in the response of the Bracero program.Which allowed millions of mexicans work in the U.S on short term labors. On August 4, 1942 the united states concluded a temporary agreement for the use of mexican agricultural labor. Another response would be "successful Unionization"in 1965 the National Farm Workers Association.Headed by Cesar Chavez dedicated his life to improving treatment,pay, and working conditions. This Association had a first against grape growers in California. Chavez battle with the grape growers improved and labor conditions would last for years.
