Topic: What challenges do Hispanics face?

My Notes:

source: http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2014/06/02/top-issue-for-hispanics-hint-its-not-immigration/
Notes from this source: Hispanics find other values more important than immigration, although immigration is a challenge, they care more about other things when they come to america or anywhere. A graph on this site shows that Hispanics have a concern of the challenge of economy and jobs, education and health care.
"Indeed, when Pew Research Center has surveyed the Hispanic community, there are several issues that consistently rank higher on the list than immigration. In 2013, some 57% of Hispanic registered voters called education an “extremely important” issue facing the nation today. That’s compared with jobs and the economy (52%) and health care (43%). Just 32% said immigration."

Notes from this source: Language is another common problem that Hispanics face. actually it is a problem that anyone can face because learning a new language and trying to communicate in the process is very difficult. It is intimidating and scary when you have no idea what people are saying, and the amount of Hispanics that move here knowing nothing is a challenge. Another challenge is acculturation which corresponds with language

source: background knowledge, From stories i hear, many families have sacrificed so much to get a better life. Parents give up so much for their children or other families to receive the life they deserve. It inspires me to hear the stories of Hispanic families uniting with one another in the process of escaping a dangerous situation or in the sense of another family supporting them financially or emotionally.

Notes from source:
Ethnic diversity: Hispanics are the fastest growing minority in the united states. This is the point of difference among people.
A paragraph from this article states:
"Hispanics today form the fastest-growing ethnic minority in the United States. Numbering about 22.4 million in 1992, they make up the second largest minority in the nation, African Americans being the largest. About 60 percent of these Hispanics trace their origin to Mexico. Although Hispanics have experienced less outright discrimination (except in Texas and New Mexico) than have African Americans, some sections of this group have lower economic and education levels than does the rest of the population of the United States"

More Information about immigration for Hispanics coming from this article:

"There are two basic reasons for Hispanic immigration to the United States: economic opportunity and escape from political persecution. Very large numbers of Mexicans and Puerto Ricans entered the country to escape poverty and to find a way to make a living. The 20th-century Cuban migration, which began in 1959 when Fidel Castro took over the government of Cuba, was mainly for political reasons."

According to this article, immigration is the main problem to Hispanics.A paragraph from this article states,
"U.S. Hispanics' mentions of immigration as the top problem rose from 13% to 25% between the first half of the year and the past three months, while immigration rose from 4% to 15% among all adults. Apart from the importance they place on immigration, there is little difference in how U.S. Hispanics and all Americans describe the nation's challenges....
Hispanics are more likely than the general public to see immigration as a major problem facing the country, suggesting that this issue could be a significant factor for many Hispanic voters in the fall election. However, other issues matter to Hispanics as well, especially the economy."
