They are multilingual but Hispanics may not identify with being Latino, not the same way in reverse.

Latinos I know have no problem being identified as Hispanics, but that is not always the case in reverse. Latinos refers to geography and Hispanics to the language, try explaining that to a Hispanic and insist they are Latinos.

US now has more Spanish speakers than Spain and the second most in the world, according to a recent study.

New Mexico is home to the highest population of Spanish-speakers in the country, with 47 percent. California and Texas are next in line with 38 percent, followed by Arizona (30 percent), Nevada (27.3 percent) and Florida (23.2 percent).

The study by the Instituto Cervante saysan estimated 52.6 million people in the US speak the worldwide romance language, which is second only to Mexico’s 121 million. Que Pasa USA?…
