Part three of a five part series:
Hispanics in the United States are a highly heterogeneous population encompassing long established citizens; newly arrived immigrants; and people boasting a multiplicity of national ancestries. As a whole, they comprise 18.5 percent of the U.S. population. Like African Americans, they are overrepresented among those who have died from COVID-19 infections. According to data from the Center for Disease control, 21.3 percent of such deaths are among Hispanics. Of special concern are an estimated ten million unauthorized immigrants, many of whom are employed in essential occupations but lack minimal health protections or means of social incorporation. "The State of Hispanic Americans" gives voice to prominent intellectuals as they assess the challenges facing the largest minority group in the United States.
