The Mexican Deportation
There was a mass deportation of Mexicans and Mexican-Americans from the United States between 1929 and 1936. Estimates of how many were repatriated range from 400,000 to 2,000,000. An estimated 60% of those deported were birthright citizens of the United States.

Documentaries: The Chicano Moratorium
On August 29, 1970, a "Chicano Moratorium" against the Vietnam War was held in East L.A. Loyola-Marymount film student Tom Myrdahl shot this documentary, capturing the events that unfolded as law enforcement and protesters clashed in and around Laguna Park. This documentary was kept hidden from public view for almost 40 years. Myrdahl offers this historical film on the web as a tribute to the brave citizens of Eastern L.A. who came together 50 years ago to voice their dissent against the Vietnam War.
