Latin U.S. of America

The immigration in United States has always attracted my attention, particularly by the fact it has been since 1965 mostly a product of the Latin-American region, where a come from.

According to a projection done by Pew Research Center (Washington) in 2008, the number of Hispanics in the US will triple and represent the major part of American population growth in a 45 years-period, going from 14% in 2005 to 29% in 2050.
