Background/Historial

Throughout our country's history, immigrants have contributed immensely to our culture, our economy, our defense and our national pride. Almost all citizens of the United States are immigrants or the descendants of immigrants and each new generation of immigrants has reinvigorated our nation with the values and work ethic that has made America great. Our common experience has demonstrated that immigration is good for America, whether your ancestors arrived before the Declaration of Independence or just a generation ago. Through a generous grant from the Walmart Foundation, LULAC in partnership with the Hispanic Federation (HF) has launched the Hispanic Immigrant Integration Project (HIIP). HIIP seeks to increase the availability of immigrant integration assistance programs available to low-income, immigrant, Spanish-dominant and otherwise underserved Latinos living in Arizona, California, Indiana, and Texas.

A lo largo de la historia de este país, los inmigrantes han contribuido inmensamente a nuestra cultura, economía, defensa, y patria nacional. Casi todos los ciudadanos de los Estados Unidos son inmigrantes o descendientes de inmigrantes, cada nueva generación de inmigrantes ha revitalizado nuestra nación con los valores y ética laboral que ha hecho América tan increíble. Nuestra experiencia común ha demostrado que la inmigración es algo bueno para los Estados Unidos, aun si sus ancestros hayan llegado antes de la declaración de independencia o no más hace unas generaciones. Gracias a una beca generosa dada por la Fundación de Walmart, LULAC en colaboración con Hispanic Federation, ha iniciado el Programa Integral de los Inmigrantes Hispanos (HIIP). HIIP desea subir la disposición de programas que asisten en la integración de inmigrantes de bajo ingreso, hispanoparlantes, y si no latinos desmerecidos que viven en Arizona, California, Indiana, y Texas
