A couple of days ago I found out that my father had been part of the Bracero Program. He passed away when I was about four years old, so I would like to know about him. Hopefully I can find some sort of information here. His name was Manuel Lopez Hurtado he was from Jalisco and was probably about twenty years around the time. He was a cotton picker and worked mostly in Texas until his boss help him and some other men immigrate and he then moved to McFarland, CA. It would be nice to know a little about his life during this time since what my mom has told me is very little.
