Violence, Justice, and Mobilization among
Mxico Lindo Immigrants, 1900-1936
This book examines the response of
Mexican immigrants to Anglo American
prejudice and violence early in the
twentieth century. Drawing on archival
sources from both sides of the border,
Rosales traces the rise of "Mdxico Lindo"
nationalism and the efforts of Mexican
consuls to help poor Mexican immigrants
defend themselves against abuses and
flagrant civil rights violations by Anglo
citizens, police, and the U.S. judicial
system. This research illuminates a dark era
in which civilian and police brutality,
prejudice in the courtroom, and dispropor-
tionate arrest, conviction, and capital
punishment rates too often characterized
justice for Mexican Americans.
