Did Hoover, Truman and Eisenhower deport illegals??
« on: August 05, 2010, 02:32:53 AM »
  Ok I did NOT check this to be correct..maybe someone knows??
Whatdid Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower have in common?

Here is something that should be of great interest for you to pass around.
I didn't know of this until it was pointed out to me.

Back during The Great Depression, President Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens
in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work..

Harry Truman deported over two million Illegal's after WWII to create jobs for returning veterans.

And then again in 1954, President Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexican Nationals! The program was called
'Operation Wetback'.. It was done so WWII and Korean Veterans would have a better chance at jobs.
It took 2 Years, but they deported them!

Now....if they could deport the illegal's back then - they could sure do it today?

lf you have doubts about the veracity of this information, enter Operation Wetback into your favorite
search engine and confirm it for yourself.

Don't forget to pay your taxes...     12 million Illegal Aliens are depending on you.

As it is now, it was complicated in that time period, just as today. 

In a Truman letter to Congress

"If promptly followed up by other needed measures, this Act can be a first step toward a comprehensive program to bring badly needed improvements in the living and working conditions of migratory farm workers, both foreign and domestic. At the same time, this Act can help to assure an adequate supply of labor to meet the needs of American agriculture. On the other hand, if enactment of this legislation becomes an excuse for delay on these other measures, it will hamper our efforts to meet more basic problems-including the pressing problem of illegal immigration.

For that reason, I could not have given my approval to this Act had I not been assured by Congressional leaders that supplementary legislation and appropriations would receive prompt consideration at this session.

For many years, the Mexican Government, by agreement with the United States, has allowed its citizens to come into this country on contracts with agricultural employers to assist in harvesting vital crops--principally cotton, sugar beets, citrus fruits, and vegetables-and mostly in the southwestern part of the United States."

gosh,clear back under Pres TRUMAN illegal immigration was a problem & like now, special interests wanted stuff from congress to assure CHEAP LABOR but provided NO secure borders--EVER. The difference between then & now---NOW we have a HUGE HORDE of hispaniards who are by far the fastest growing part of our population & have HUGE political clout,unlike 1948. NOW we have hispaniards all over tv threatening us with the hispaniard vote in pres elections if we don't let mexco become a 51 st state..or about that. Hispaniard congressmen  are all over TV sticking it in our face. Maybe Truman forsaw that. Lots did & NOBODY did anything to stop  it. Hi breeding,illiterate hispaniards rule. Will only make FAR worse the class warfare of haves vs have nots . RACIAL & "spread the wealth around"class warfare  politics is here to stay. In significant ways, we have lost our country to hispaniards & other immigrant minorities. Hispaniards now make up so large a segment that the pressures to ASSIMILATE are FAR less than on small FAR MORE DIVERSE national & ethnic groups of immigrants in the past--they HAD to assimilate. Better learn to speekie da spaniard,pilgrim...or rather,hombre.

Under President Dwight D. Eisenhower

Operation Wetback in action

The effort began in California and Arizona, and coordinated 1075 Border Patrol agents, along with state and local police agencies, to mount an aggressive crackdown. Tactics employed included going as far as systematic police sweeps of Mexican-American neighborhoods, and random stops and ID checks of "Mexican-looking" people in a region with many Native Americans and native Hispanics. In some cases, illegal immigrants were deported along with their American-born minor dependent children. Some 750 agents targeted agricultural areas with a goal of 1,000 apprehensions per day. By the end of July, over 50,000 immigrants were caught in the two states. An estimated 488,000 illegal immigrants are claimed to have left voluntarily, for fear of being apprehended. By September, 80,000 had been taken into custody in Texas, and the INS estimated that 500,000 to 700,000 had left Texas of their own accord. To discourage illicit re-entry, buses and trains took many deportees deep within Mexican territory prior to releasing them. Tens of thousands more were deported by two chartered ships, the Emancipation and the Mercurio. The ships ferried them from Port Isabel, Texas, to Veracruz, Mexico, more than 500 miles (800 kilometers) to the south. Some were taken as far as 1,000 miles. Deportation by sea was ended after seven deportees jumped overboard from the Mercurio and drowned, provoking a mutiny that led to a public outcry in Mexico.[3]
