This paper discusses the predictions of changes coming to the Hispanic community which are based on the birth-rate of second and third generation immigrants currently outstripping the entrance of first generation immigrants from Spanish speaking countries. According to the paper, this shift will create dramatic changes as the new generations attempt to communicate their differences in values and perspectives as their language and cultural values shift from those of their parents' or grandparents' countries to those of the United States. The changes, although perhaps less pronounced due to the United States relatively new "salad bowl" perspective on culture, will be both sweeping and inevitable.

From the Paper:

"The Hispanic community in the United States is changing. This change is not a result of any outside forces; rather, it is coming from within the Hispanic community itself. The change was inevitable, coming from the growth of the community over time. With this change come the inevitable difficulties between generations, only exacerbated by a new language and a new culture--and even a new way of thinking. The Hispanic community is changing because the population of "second generation" immigrants, the children of people who came to the United States, is overtaking the number of Hispanic people coming into the country.
