Others have argued that enduring educational inequality among Mexicans (Hirschman and Falcon 1985) and other Hispanic groups stems from segregation and discrimination and from the resulting (though not inevitable) development of oppositional attitudes. For instance, declining discrimination against Asian-Americans has reduced the importance of the parameter of race and led to greater class-based division (Espiritu and Ong 1994). Pessar (1999) argues that unequal gender relations preclude true ethnic solidarity.

This study examines whether the relationship between acculturation and physical health varies by gender among Mexican Americans, and if the mechanisms that mediate the relationship operate differently by gender. With the exception of older Mexicans, the rural elderly are more likely than their metropolitan counterparts to have lived in the United States for several years, to live independently or in households where at least one native lives, to be English fluent, and to be more educated and better off economically than older natives.

A lot of us Black Americans are interested in the African diaspora. I really think readers who enjoy this book should also read the book that Brown University professor Dr. Jose Itzigsohn wrote about Dominican Americans in the Providence area. One person found this helpful. However, I think many of us wouldn't know about our Cape Verdean brethren. It's only because I attended college in Rhode Island that I'd heard of and met these people.

VIDEO - In an exclusive interview with The New American magazine, Legal Immigrants for America chief Amapola Hansberger warned that illegal immigration threatens America. So much for illegals being in the shadows. Hansberger, a naturalized American citizen from Nicaragua, also highlighted the enormous difference between legal immigration and illegal immigration. Legal immigrants want to be obedient to the laws of the United States of America-we love America," she said.

Reichman’s debunks the myth of the cognitive and behavioral intransigence of first generation Mexican immigrants. Focusing on health care, she reveals the flexibility of female immigrants’ beliefs about health and illness. She demonstrates how the rate of acculturation varies with the complaint: those with chronic disease shift health ideology faster than those sick from sub-acute illnesses.

Reichman’s most important discovery is that the majority of changes occur within ten years, regardless of the age at which immigration takes place, the type of sending community, the level of education, or the English language fluency of the migrant.
