"Los Tres Mojados" is a corrido written about the 1976 Hanigan Case, in which George, Thomas, and Patrick Hanigan were tried for torturing undocumented immigrants Manuel García Loya, Eleazar Ruelas Zavala, and Bernabe Herrera. "Mojado" is an historically derogatory term for the Latino community but was used here to bring awareness to immigration issues.
