Latinos and Assimilation

Great report put out by Center for American Progress regarding assimilation among new immigrants including Latinos. The report examines the future outlook for immigrants, projecting their gains through 2030. The report counters some conventional wisdom regarding Latinos and assimilation. Money quote:

Hispanic newcomers show very positive rates of advancement by 2030. This is contrary to assertions of nativist scholars such as Samuel Huntington who argue that Hispanic immigrants are not assimilating by dint of their large numbers and proximity to their home country. Hispanic immigrants’ advancements mirror that of all immigrants, albeit from a lower starting point.
