On Tuesday, the California Assembly made motions to pay reparations to survivors of Latinos deported in the 1930Ã?Â¢Ã¢â??Â¬Ã¢â??Â¢s. 41-23 lawmakers approved Sen. Joe DunnÃ?Â¢Ã¢â??Â¬Ã¢â??Â¢s bill that will create a 16-member commission to make plans for the governor and Legislature on how to redress deportations. The deportations were enacted by the Hoover administration to remove illegal immigrants and free jobs for Americans during the Depression. Those supporting the bill believe many of the deported were American citizens or legal immigrants.
