At beginning of twentieth century, East Los Angeles became popular immigrant destination. In early 1900s, Russians, Jews, Japanese, and Mexicans all had significant presence in area. Living east of river and working in nearby factories, or traveling by electric rail into downtown Los Angeles, immigrants and their children helped fuel prosperity of growing metropolis. By onset of World War II, East Los Angeles had almost become exclusively Latino community, soon reinforced by influx of Mexican workers who arrived to man the machines in area's burgeoning war industries.

grammar notes
There are two kinds of articles in the English language: definite and indefinite. The definite article (the) can be singular or plural. The indefinite article (a or an) is singular, and cannot be used with a plural noun.

This can be a fairly difficult topic for ESL students, but there are many sites that can clarify it for you :) If you'd like more information about articles (definite and indefinite) and their usage, check out the Use and Non-Use of Articles (Purdue University) page.
