New York is a very multicultural state. You got Chinatown, Little Italy, etc. One thing that you might wonder about this is why are there so many different ethnic groups in this one place? Why did they choose to leave their home? What was it like moving from their home to America?
In a demographic of New York 2018, it shows that besides “white” people (32%) Hispanics and/or Latinx are the largest ethnic group, making up 29.1% of the total population in New York City. Not only in New York but “Hispanics are the largest minority in the U.S.” said a CNN article.
This leads to wonder, why are Hispanics moving to America? Well from my own family my mom moved here from Guatemala with my brothers and my sister. When I went to ask her why she said that she just wanted a better life for her children. My mom said that when she got here she didn’t have any money and had to live in a shelter for a few years until she could get enough to pay for an apartment. Now I might not know why many Hispanics are immigrating to America, but from I know or can infer is that they just want a better life for their families.
