The Mexican Revolution in Chicago

This chapter examines the formation of a Mexican conservative (traditionalist) community in Chicago and East Chicago, Indiana. Traditionalists were devout Catholics who denounced the liberals’ anticlericalism and secularism and created a parochial educational program to rebuke the anticlerical aspects of the Mexican Revolution and the liberal movement. After the start of the Cristero Rebellion, the traditionalist movement grew in size and influence, endorsed the Cristeros, received the backing of the Catholic Church, and then aggressively challenged the liberals in Mexico and Chicagoland. With the onset of the Great Depression, traditionalists were subjected to a deportation campaign that led many traditionalists to question the value of their Mexican citizenship, which could cost them the Catholic community they had created within the borders of the United States
