I believe it's Worthington....I'll add stats when I get back to MY computer.

I want to say it's like 40% or 50% Latino.

Illinois (most are in Chicagoland)

2010: 2,030,000
2000: 1,530,000
1990: 904,000
1980: 639,000
I did notice that a bit. Here's some towns/areas, besides Cicero, I find in the Chicago-metro that are listed as majority Hispanic.

Specific Northeastern cities that come to mind are Dunkirk, Amsterdam, Newburgh, Middletown, Beacon, Haverstraw and Monticello in NY; Lawrence, Chelsea, Springfield and Holyoke in MA; Nashua NH, Reading, Lebanon, Allentown and Hazelton in PA. There are quite a few places in NJ as well. Can't forget NYC, Hartford, Bridgeport, New Haven, Woonsocket, Pawtucket and Central Falls in RI.

Technically Houston/Dallas don't have historical ties to Latin-America the same way San Antonio does. But they are in Texas, and Texas was part of Mexico. And even then, alot of the aforementioned towns and cities in those other states have only been RECENT magnets for Latino-migration(Post-1980's) vs Houston/Dallas in which Latinos(Tejanos) have been a staple in those communities for DECADES(Pre-1960's).

No, he's definitely wrong, and it has been explained to him in the past why he's wrong about that.

Of course, any city that maintains a large Hispanic population for a length of time will eventually develop strong ties to Latin America, but it seems that OP is referring to cities that haven't been historically tied to LA, atleast, not when they were originally founded. That includes Houston and Dallas.

There aren't many cities period in the US that has cultural ties to Latin Countries even though they have large Latino populations. Even Miami. Miami was mostly Black and White until the 1960s. Houston was the same until the 1980s. What they both have in common was that they are huge immigrant magnets for Latino's especially since they have large ports. In the South, Outside of Mexican, if Miami doesn't have the mostly the largest of a group, they have the 2nd largest of a group and the same is vice versa with Houston.

It was just a matter of time before Houston or Miami built ties to Latin America. But historically, these two cities were mostly Black and White and became heavily Latino recently.

I think Albert Lea also has a high Hispanic percentage in MN. Owatonna may as well.
