Latinos are immersing themselves in US popular culture
“They don’t want to learn English” is a favored refrain among today’s anti-immigrant forces seeking to curb new immigration into this country. In an increasingly intense national debate focused on undocumented workers and the porous U.S.-Mexico border, the heated rhetoric emanating from anti-immigrant activists has largely assumed a distinctly Hispanic orientation. If the anti-immigrationists are to be believed, Hispanics as a group resist assimilation and the American way of life, unlike previous ethnic immigrant generations. But contrary to these beliefs, a new survey jointly conducted by the New Generation Latino Consortium (NGLC) and New American Dimensions (NAD) demonstrates that today’s generation of young Latinos embrace American culture and its idioms like never before.
