Title: Field TripAmerica is sometimes referred to as a 'nation of immigrants' because of our largely open-door policy toward accepting foreigners pursuing their vision of the American dream. In cities across the United States you will find people of every race ethnicity, ethnocultural or cultural group, some more diverse than others.

The people who live in the part of town I am referring to are predominantly Hispanics. As we walked around looking at the shops and food places, the people...
