Immigrants in the Great Depression in 1930's

I am a Mexican girl. The Great Depression of the 1930s hit Mexican immigrants especially hard. Along with the job crisis and food shortages that affected all workers, Mexicans and Mexican Americans had to face an additional threat, deportation. Since people lost jobs and the number of immigrant worker incresed, the government started a program of repatriating immigrants to Mexico. Many Mexicans, especially farm workers, were sent out of the country. Immigrants were offered free train rides to Mexico, and some left by their will. I thought that my family will be forced into repatriation as other Mexicans. However, few years later, the migrant work camps established by FSA, Farm Security Administration, and our family found stability in the camp. They provided housing, food, and medicine. Also, we were protected from criminal elements.
