Hispanic American diversity is rich in culture and varies by many differences within the United States' diverse population. In this segment I will identify the linguistic, political, social, economic, religious and familial conventions as well as statuses of four Hispanic groups living in the United States. I will cover Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans and Salvadoran Americans. Mexican Americans have a distinctive additive to the diversity of the United States. Mexican immigrants from Mexico have made an impact in cultural diversification to this country since it is one of the largest Hispanic groups that are in the U.S. Due to the growth of the Mexican American population in the states the U.S. government mandated that all schools in the nation create bilingual programs in the late 1960's. Today, there have been many issues regarding the transition of the Spanish and English language barriers in education. Some believe that it is okay to teach children in their native language while transitioning them into the English language and others do not. In the early years of Mexican American growth and recognition, Mexican Americans were restricted by bigotry. Today, Mexican Americans can be seen in high offices of political stature as for example congress and or Chief Justice of the United States. Socially, Mexican Americans were involved in movements such as the United Farm Workers association; thus far bringing their communities together and advancing socially with other minorities to help shape a better America. Mexican Americans were a major part of stimulating the United States economy because in their migration to the United States they did most of the jobs that others did not want to do. Agriculture
