What are mutualista activities and what is the purpose of those activities? How can mutualista’s affect the lives of Mexican Americans? Mexican Americans have been a major part of the United States of America for generations. Many people today feel that Mexican Americans will become the majority group in the US because of their rapidly growing population. While Mexican Americans may soon become the most populous group in the US, they would also have to surpass the Caucasian population in economic and political power to be considered the majority group. In present day society, Mexican Americans are still considered members of a minority group. Throughout history, Mexicans that have immigrated to the US have had to suffer many hardships and unique social issues. The very first examples of Mexican immigration to the US were the result of changes to the southern US border after Mexico’s loss in the Mexican-American war and the need for cheap labor after the Japanese and Chinese labor markets started to suffer. (Myers, 2007)
