Migrants Continue to Assimilate

| | Comments ()
Contrary to nativist myth, migrants, authorized and unauthorized, continue to assimilate to the U.S. at rates equal to or faster than migrants in the past. 

The Los Angeles Times reports that the census "portrays more of a melting pot in Southern California."

The Arizona Republic reports on a study that turns perceptions of migrants' English use "on its head."  A study of German migrants from the past shows they were much worse at assimilating than migrants are today.

It just goes to show that this myth that Latino migration, or majority world migration, is any different from migration from the past is really nothing but a racist perception.
