This policy was implemented as a response to the Great Depression, as Mexican immigrants were seen as competition for jobs and resources. The government believed that by encouraging Mexican immigrants to return to their home country, it would alleviate some of the economic strain. However, many Mexican immigrants were actually American citizens or legal residents, and the repatriation efforts resulted in the forced removal of thousands of individuals who had established lives in the United States.
