What did Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower have in common?

Back during The Great Depression, President Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work..

Harry Truman deported over two million illegal after WWII to create jobs for returning veterans.

And then again in 1954, President Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexican Nationals! The program was called 'Operation Wetback'. It was done so WWII and Korean Veterans would have a better chance at jobs.

It took 2 Years, but they deported them!

Now....if they could deport the illegal's back then - they could sure do it today.

Please note. The key word here is "illegal."

    The "deportation" attributed to Truman happened under Hoover, and was not ordered by Hoover. It was carried out purely by local police forces on their own. "Illegal" was not a key word there. Status was not even checked, they just rounded up anyone who looked Mexican, resulting in tens of thousands of US Citizens getting deported as well who had to be repatriated.

    There were few deportations after World War II. Instead, there was a massive drop in legal immigration, as the United States allowed mass legal migration from Mexico during World War II to anyone willing to serve in the Armed Forces.

    Operation Wetback deported 150,000 over 10 years, not 13 million over 2 years, but it did target illegal aliens, not Mexican nationals.
