California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill this week that instructs schools and textbook makers in the state to seriously consider including a lesson on Depression-era Mexican Repatriation. The procedure forced more than one million Mexicans out of the U.S.
Experts say that roughly 60% of Mexicans who left America at that time were U.S. citizens. California didn’t officially apologize for the deportations until about 10 years ago.
