during the Great Depression, did the US gov. really force "migrant workers" from Mexico back over the border? (why don't hear much about it?

I read that the USA had a lot of migrant workers from Mexico working farm jobs, etc for low wages and during the Great Depression there was uproar over this and the call for them to be deported. and you dont hear or read much about this now, it is almost like it never happened, but how it is now in comparison to then , if know?

    Yes.  These forced migrations were called “repatriation drives.”  Additional information below.

    Yes, this happens in the Jennifer Lopez movie My Family. The film depicts three generations of a Mexican American family who emigrated from Mexico and settled in East Los Angeles.

    I thought it was later, under Eisenhower.
