Abstract

The sustained growth of the Hispanic population of the United States that is to say, people of Latin American origin- now makes it the country's largest minority, prompting considerable debate as to the capacity of the United States to assimilate, as well as on the way this group itself has developed. The following pages are an attempt to shed some light on these questions. In them we will combine secondary sources with observations based on our work in New York to create an accurate picture in terms of the demography, economics and politics of the Latin American population in the United States, while bearing in mind cultural aspects to do with identity, language and belonging. This will allow us to put forward a hypothesis on its long-term direction.
