From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
American immigration history is marked by strong patterns. Native-born citizens resist the newest arrivals. These new arrivals assimilate and then join in the nativist resistance to the next group of immigrants.
Will this pattern hold for the immigrants of the most recent phase (post 1965)?
Will current Latin American and Asian immigrants assimilate as earlier Irish, Italian, and Slavic immigrants did?
Are there differences between past immigrant groups and current?
