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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
