No, they don't. There isn't a single large "Spanish, as in Spain", community in the United States. Lookie here: http://www.city-data.com/top2/h56.html. The largest percentage of Spanish-born people in any city/town is only 3.8%, and that's in a tiny town in Nevada.

There are groups of people in New Mexico and Colorado who claim "Spanish", "Hispanic", or "Hispano", but they are generally so far removed from anything resembling Spanish (as in Spain) culture (aside from Catholicism), that they could be considered a distinctly different group altogether.

You're referring to people born in Spain. I'm talking a cultural community similar to that of Italian-Americans or Greek-Americans. I guess it just doesn't exist.

Wouldn't there be a leftover or concurring group of people if such a place existed? Do Greek-American or Italian-American communities not have actual Greeks or Italians in them?

harder to find numbers on other countries, but it was probably large in other Latin American countries.
This.

Why would spanish people come to the US when they could go to a country where their own language was dominant?

Yes they do. I'm speaking of people of direct Spanish descent, not necessarily or soley just people that were born in Spain. There are many Spanish American and Spanish/Spaniard descent enclaves in the states. There is a long history of Spanish communities and Spanish immigration to the USA.
