Sample text

When it became clear that Díaz had no intention of allowing a free and fair election, Madero went to San Antonio, Texas, and plotted violent revolution. It soon became apparent that Madero’s chief problem – which he seems not to have completely understood – was that building a viable coalition of people who had such disparate and irreconcilable complaints was impossible. Madero’s movement was probably doomed from the start. The revolution broke out in November 1910, and its first phase ended in May 1911 with Díaz’s resignation.

Some 5 million people were thrown out of work, 100,000 businesses went bankrupt, and nearly half a million farmers lost their land. Mexican workers were among the poorest and most expendable elements in the US labor market, so the depression hit them especially hard. Local charities that tried to provide relief soon found themselves swamped. They implored the US Congress to allocate a special fund to deport the Mexicans back to Mexico, but Congress paid no heed to their requests. Some desperate Mexicans moved to cities in the hope of finding work, often ending up homeless and still more desperate.

1910–1930: Xenophobia and Employment Prior to 1917 the only obstacles for Mexicans wishing to enter the United States were the expense of the voyage and the forbidding terrain. No laws barred their entry into the United States, and only about sixty Bureau of Immigration agents patrolled the 2,000 miles of border. During the nineteenth century, nationalism – that is, a deep and sometimes belligerent devotion to the nation and its supposed interests – had become a potent and destabilizing force in the world.
