Foreigners In Their Own Land/Empire of Dreams

"Foreigners in Their Own Land" surveys the history and people from 1565-1880, as the first Spanish explorers enter North America, the U. S. expands into territories in the Southwest that had been home to Native Americans and English and Spanish colonies, and as the Mexican-American War strips Mexico of half its territories by 1848. In "Empire of Dreams," see how the American population was reshaped by Latino immigration starting in 1880 and continuing into the 1940s. Cubans, Mexicans and Puerto Ricans begin arriving in the U.S. and start to build communities in South Florida, Los Angeles and New York.
