In 1954 CBS Radio, as part of its Unit 1 Documentary series, devoted an hour to the problem of illegal immigration and what was being done about it at the time. And roughly, its about the same that’s being done now. The arguments are almost exactly the same then as they are now; the conversation hasn’t changed much, except the topic of drugs and cartels wasn’t an issue then. In 1954 we were in the midst of Red Scare Mania and the fear came over the possibilities of a flood of Communists rather than drugs and gangs.
