Latinos are one of the fastest growing minorities in American society. But who or what is a Latino? Many are recent arrivals and they are making the transition from immigrants to citizens. But how fast are they integrating, what are their political views, and how will they affect American politics in coming decades? The Latino Center for Leadership Development in Dallas, the Tower Center at SMU, and the Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute are seeking to answer these and other questions, looking at the socio-demographic profile of Latinos, the dilemmas of civic and political integration, and the hurdles that Latinos face in their quest to become full citizens.
