Juan, Lupe, Pablo, Sara, and their children are two families with Mexican heritage happily living as citizens in the United States of America.

But in 1929, President Herbert Hoover, hoping to ease the 25 percent unemployment rate caused by the Great Depression, orders them back to Mexico—along with more than one million other Mexicans and American citizens of Mexican descent in a sweeping act known as Mexican Repatriation.

Not from Here, Not from There: The Forced Migration of American Citizens vividly paints a picture of the harsh realities these families are forced to face as a result of their mandatory deportation. Suffering deplorable conditions back in Mexico that include extreme poverty and harsh discrimination, these two families endure years of unspeakable hardships in the hopes of one day returning to their real homeland— the United States of America.

Author Maria Teresa H. de Holcomb presents a thought-provoking dramatic play based on actual events. Filled with pain yet infused with hope, it takes an honest and unapologetic look at this shameful period of American history.
