There are many ethnic groups that live in the United States. Anywhere from black, white, Hispanic, or oriental. The similarity between these ethnic groups is most of all the groups have immigrated from other countries or regions. In almost all instances immigrants have faced difficulties and prejudice from people in the United States. Sometimes immigrants are not treated as equals, no opportunities for jobs, no medical benefits, and even faced with dual labor market issues. Just like other races, Colombians that have immigrated to the United States faced many hardships. One group that comes to mind is Colombians, which is a Hispanic based ethic group. Most of the Colombian Americans that live in the United States today were born here but their ancestors are from Colombia. The first Colombian immigrants most likely were part of the few South Americans who came to settle in the United States in the 19 th century. Colombians started to immigrate to the United States for the same reason most people migrate to America, to flee their government and to have more opportunities for success. Many Colombians were forced to leave their country In search of work when the government introduced agriculture machinery. Very little is known about the original settlers because they referred to themselves as Americans.
