Episode #3 - When getting help from La Patria was really a thing

Released Wednesday, 15th May 2019
Good episode? Give it some love!
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. Qué opinas?
