Some of them run away from their countries because of political persecutions, and a good example are immigrants from Cuba (Gabaccia, 25). Gabaccia identifies the regime of Fidel Castro as playing a role in the immigration of Cubans to United States of America (19). He further states that the regime was oppressive to them, and to save their economic wealth, they had to run to capitalistic states such as United States of America (Gabbacia, 26). California has the largest number of Hispanic immigrants in United States of America.
51% of Children in California are Hispanics, the population of this foreigners amounted to 4.6 million people (Eastman, 19). This was in Los Angeles, California. Eastman observes that the Mexicans are the largest Hispanic group in California, with an approximate percentage of 60% of the Hispanics (31). 10% are from Puerto Rico, while 3% come from Cuba, Venezuela, and other Latin American countries.
In 2011, the Hispanics amounted to about 16% of the American population, and this was an approximate value of 50 million people (Gabbacia, 21). One of the most notable cultures among the Hispanics is the Spanish language in itself. This language has played an important role in influencing the American culture. Even though the Hispanics speak English, they use the Spanish language to bond with their families. This culture has spread in United States of America. An example is depicted in the school curriculum of some states, whereby they encourage their students to learn foreign languages, such as Spanish (Eastman, 28).
By doing this, they promote the Spanish language in United States of America. There are schools of higher learning that teaches Spanish and French languages to students willing to learn. Basing on this, one way in which these societies have influenced the American culture is the spread of the Spanish language (Gabbacia, 36). It has also influenced the growth of a slang language that is a mixture of English and Spanish. Names
