Dalton, Georgia comes to mind

And is the Hispanic (mainly Mexican) population growing in Kentucky?

People of Hispanic/Latino origin are the largest minority group in the Grand Rapids MSA. Grand Rapids is 15% Hispanic, it's largest suburb Wyoming is 20%.

In Dalton, there most certainly is. There's a big carpet manufacturing industry there, and has attracted a lot of Mexicans.

I think the reason a lot of Mexicans have been moving to the East Coast is since it's not saturated with Mexican labor/Mexican restaurants like the West and Southwest are. There are a lot of Mexicans in NYC now, an estimated 500k. I live right outside of NYC and unfortunately they haven't came to where I live yet, so there are pretty much no authentic Mexican food options in my vicinity.

And I speak Spanish relatively well (for a non-native speaker) and didn't know that, thanks for the lesson.

It's in a state that's literally named "New Mexico" and borders Mexico, I don't think that's a good example.

The connection is remote and hundred years in the past.

I haven't really had the opportunity to experience any Mexican/other Hispanic culture within Chicagoland, but they are definitely there.

You can find Hispanics most anywhere; I was just in Spokane, WA (which has no history of anybody but European descendants moving there), and all I had to do to find some was to go to a Mexican restaurant.
Yeah, Chicago has had many decades to work on its relationship with Mexico. It's a little known fact that the second largest shopping district in Chicago in terms of profits is 26th St in the Little Village neighborhood. The selection of stores is not only catering to Chicagoland's Mexican population, but it's also a popular draw for Mexicans elsewhere in the Midwest. That's extremely impressive when you realize that the only other district pulling in more money in general is the Magnificent Mile/Michigan Ave.

Your Spokane story sounds like what's currently being seen in a lot of Midwestern cities not named Chicago. A lot of the larger cities and metros have demographics that more so mirror 1960s America than they do 2010s America, but we're seeing Hispanic communities and businesses starting to grow from the ground up.

Many states in the Midwest have extremely fast growing Hispanic/Latino populations with many small and larger towns across have large or majority Hispanic/Latino populations. This goes along with many large cities in the Northeast. In fact, Hispanic/Latino populations have been growing fast throughout the US.
