Hispanic American Immigration
By Chasen Campbell and Alvaro Reyes-Martinez
In 1950 4 million U.S. residents were from Spanish-speaking countries. About 50 percent of Hispanics in the United States originate from Mexico.Mexican migration to the United States began in the early 20th century, motivated by labor demands in the United States and political unrest in Mexico. Throughout the 20th century, major reforms to the U.S. immigration system played a role in shaping the size and character of Mexican immigration to the U.S. Since 1980, Mexicans have been the largest immigrant group in the United States.
