News From the Border

Providing the news from a different front but from a war that we must win as well! I recognize the poverty and desperate conditions that many Latinos live in. We, as the USA, have a responsibility to do as much as we can to reach out to aid and assist spiritually with the Gospel and naturally with training, technology and resources. But poverty gives no one the right to break the laws of another sovereign nation.

Study: Mexico immigrants slower to assimilate in U.S.


Published: 05.13.2008

The nation's immigrants are adopting American ways just as quickly as they were in 1990 despite a doubling in their numbers, research out Tuesday showed.

The findings show, however, that Mexicans, the largest immigrant group, are making slower progress than others.

Calculations by the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, a libertarian think tank, are among the most detailed to measure how well immigrants fit in with native-born Americans on three fronts: economic, cultural and civic. The index used census data from 1890 to 2006 to measure current and historical similarities between natives and the foreign-born.

"Mexicans and other Latin Americans are assimilating slowly."
