How Immigrants Experience Discrimination

According to data by NPR, U.S. born Latinos experience discrimination almost twice as much as immigrant Latinos do.

A sociologist at the University of Pennsylvania, Emilio Parrado, said there are several reasons why this may be the case. One of these reasons is that Latino immigrants haven’t had as much time to understand race relations in the U.S. as U.S. born Latinos.

“Immigrants tend to think that it’s their own fault,” Parrado said to NPR. “That it’s because they don’t know the rules, or they don’t know English.”
