"Bracero"

Film about braceros grew from UCI expert’s work (OC Reg)
     A UCI professor’s documentary film about the bracero program, much of it made in Orange County, will be screened and discussed at two upcoming events.
     Producer and co-director of the film was Gilbert G. Gonzalez, a professor emeritus of Chicano studies who has written extensively about Mexican labor in the United States and about the bracero program.

The notion that the history of this program is uninteresting or unimportant would find a home only in the mind of a stupid or obtuse person. A cretin.
