Understanding Immigration Through The "Bracero" Story
The debate over immigration into the United States occasionally gets to the issue of workers INVITED into the country from Mexico.
Lina Cordia, a Medford librarian and local historian, lays out the facts and figures in a lecture on the program.
It is part of the Windows in Time series of the Southern Oregon Historical Society, and it's called “The Fruits of their Labors: the Bracero Program in Southern Oregon 1942-1964.”
Lina Cordia presents the program today (November 1) at noon at the library in Medford, and November 8 at noon at the Ashland library. We get a preview in the studio.
