Early Twentieth Century Mexican Immigration to the U.S. · HERB: Resources for Teachers

There were reasons on both sides of the border. Transformations in the Mexican economy under President Porfirio Díaz left many peasants landless and desperate; when he was overthrown in 1911, ten percent of Mexico’s population departed for the U.S. There they found work in mining and agribusiness, which were transforming the economy of the Southwest from a region of small, entrepreneurial landholders into one dominated by large enterprises employing wage labor.

Migrants found themselves in a strange position—desired as workers by large business concerns but facing intense legal, political, and social discrimination. Mexico - Country Profile - 2014.
