1. Enrique believes that he is more American than the white people that do live here is, and his reasoning is that the Hispanics and native Americans were located here before the Europeans came down and took it all, and he isn’t wrong.

1, reading this book and seeing what Enrique has been through, has taken me through a journey and, has changed my views Mexican immigrants in America drastically to a good perspective.

Yet they are still the ones to be racist and unjustifiably so due to Mexican Americans being the good hard workers all these people are. As we see in this book Enrique worked very hard to come from Mexico and build what he has plus his family get to where he is today and how he was treated with his housing and environment is an excellent example. In this book we saw the kind of person that he was, he had some flaws like all of us, but he was good. Enrique worked hard for his family and tried to bring up and help his community. The community of Mexican immigrants all seem to be the same, very nice and friendly people that mean good and are just working to live and be happy like all of us, and seeing how American culture treats them is a shame and more light should be shed on this
