In his 1860 speech The Californios, published in Spanish in Los Angeles's EI Clamor Publico newspaper, de la Guerra attacked the practices by which land rights were adjudicated under US and California law. In this heart-rending description of the disenfran- chisement of the Californios, de la Guerra used one of the phrases that best characterized the condition of the native peoples: "foreigners in their own land:' The same year, 1860, that de la Guerra delivered this speech, he decided to leave the legislature and run for a position as judge in Santa Barbara, a position that he won and held until his death.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
