Episode #5 - Las Trailas
Now we enter the story! Today’s episode is about las trailas. Axel lived in one for a while growing up, and we know many of y’all did too. The trailas we’re talking about in today’s episode were around the corner from middle-class white housing developments near Charlotte in the early 2000s. This is when things started to go south (no pun intended). Not all the white people liked having us in their ‘hood, a strong anti-immigrant movement came here from California, undocumented immigrants lost their driver’s licenses… In today’s episode we meet Angelica, a Mexican woman trying her best to raise her family amid this shit - just like our parents did. We try to take on the fights that our parents can’t, but it’s not always easy. You too?To learn more, check out: to this channel for new podcast episodesiTunes: us:Instagram:
Episode #4 - Pro-immigrant conservatism???
In the 1960s through 1980s, millions of Latinos started traveling through the South as migrant farmworkers. Daisy has some personal experience with this since she grew up in a rural area and worked in the packing sheds before she became a college student. But the crazy thing is that unlike when we were kids, the South was really not that anti-immigrant back then. The white folks were both conservative and pro-immigrant (we found it hard to picture, too). In today’s episode, we meet Israel Cortez, who came to Georgia as a migrant worker during that time and worked hard to “fit in.” We totally get it.

Episode #3 - When getting help from La Patria was really a thing
Back in the 1950s, hundreds of thousands of Mexican men came to Arkansas to pick cotton, on contracts negotiated by the Mexican and U.S. governments. Today we meet Angel Cano, a licenciado Mexico sent over to protect them from wage theft, discrimination, and other troubles. Señor Cano even had some success, some of the time. It seems crazy to us that these migrantes trusted their patria enough to ask for help all the way from Arkansas.
