Disposition of Illegal Immigrants

Prelude: 1964 - Bracero Program Ends creating illegal Immigrants "In 1964, Washington cancelled the Bracero program unilaterally
because migrant laborers continued to arrive without papers and outside of negotiated agreements.
Thus began the era of undocumented migration by 'irregular' migrants who worked temporarily under the threat of deportation.
In this phase, laissez-faire attitudes and policies reigned,  though both governments would pay the costs 20 years later."
