7. Wrong

The masses apparently disagree that Latinos need to do a better job of assimilation. I disagree with Brokaw in this, too. The ones that have been here a long time are assimilating and adjusting to, and not conflicting with, American culture. A lot of them do learn English, and ALL their kids do, so any isolation based on language won’t last more than one generation. I see the Latino immigration experience today as the same as the Italians did 100 years ago, the Polish 120 years ago, or the Germans 140 years ago, or the Irish 160 years ago.
