Almost 100% of the people I have seen in the buildings are of Hispanic origin, there is almost always a Honduran, many Mexicans and it is not surprising that most do not have documents. Speaking of the subject with my instructor, for being involved he has let me investigate how many Hispanics there are in the United States, to follow up on the culture shock that this has in the construction area.
Most constructions are made with Hispanics, of course gringo style. Large numbers of immigrants live in old neighborhoods, it is said that the presence of these influences the trends of added value to be implemented cultural practices that Americans do not accept. After searching the Internet I have found Pew Hispanic a page dedicated to maintaining information related to the immigration of Hispanics to the United States. The migration map has caught my attention, which although it is built in Flash, shows the growth that Hispanics have had in the different districts in each state in four stages: 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2007.
The page has much more data than its top menu appears, there are statistics, profiles of immigrants, demographic studies by state and country of origin. I recommend it.
To give an example, if you want to know the countries with more Hispanics in the United States, including Spain, this is the result:
|3||All Other Hispanics||2,880,536||6.3|
|18||Other Central America||111,513||0.2|
|21||Other South America||77,898||0.2|
Some data seems low to me, but it is an important benchmark. It also has a 3-Dimensional map showing extremes like Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and Houston.
