Abstract

Iowa has always been a state of immigrants, this fact has never been as important as today. This presentation will look at the recent waves of Latino immigrants in Iowa. Hernandez and Amaya will discuss the historic reasons of this migration and more importantly, about the social and economic impacts for Iowa. We will look at census data and other statistics that identify this growth in our state and what the trends are for the future. The presenters will also discuss myths and issues regarding Hispanic new Iowans.
