ASTORGA MORALES, Abel. Brief reflections on the social movement of ex braceros: a migratory problem that escaped to the past to appear in the present. Let. hist. [online]. 2015, n.13, pp.191-217. ISSN 2448-8372.

During the Bracero Program (1942-1964) thousands of Mexicans in the United States legally labored in agriculture and railroad. Each worker used to deduct ten per cent salary for Saving Fund, but once in Mexico savings were not returned in its entirety. For what purpose was established savings, and why the money was not returned. From a discussion promoted by the relationship oblivion-memory, the article explains what made possible a problem of the past -forgotten during years- burst in 1998 as a social movement for recovery of these amounts of braceros.
