My father was born in 1919 in Rockdale Illinois, the son of a poor Mexican worker. Even though he was a U.S. citizen, he was deported and was only able to re-enter though the Bracero program. He did manual labor all his life and raised 4 college-educated sons to become exemplary U.S. Mexican-American citizens.
