Racial Slang. Refers to any Hispanic
immigrant, particularly those of illegal
origin (the implication being that a wet
back results from crossing river borders
by swimming). Generally considered to be
a slur, offensive. Also "wetback".
Every summer, they hired a bunch of wet
backs to work the fields, and paid them
under the table.
