研究結果發現，波多黎各移民是西語裔移民當中最貧窮的一群，因貧窮所衍生出的種種問題，更有待美國政府與波多黎各移民共同面對和解決。 The island of Puerto Rico is the most eastern island of the Caribbean Sea. It is between United States and Latin America. It is also the transfer center of the passenger transport, freight transport and service industry. After the Spanish-American War of 1898, Puerto Ricans became U.S. citizens, but they do not have the complete citizenship.
Puerto Ricans migrated to the U.S. mainland because of their poor economy. Most of them have settled in New York is due to the short distance and the work place. The main theme of the thesis is to investigate where the Puerto Ricans reside in New York State, what they do, how their life is and what problem they meet by the historical analytic method. And then conclude that the Puerto Rican Spanish culture influence New York.
Many kinds of races from all over the world are gathered in New York. Immigrant History Week, established by New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg in 2004, is a tribute to diverse heritage and the contributions of immigrants in the City of New York. A wonderful array of events during this week will explore the rich immigrant identity in New York City. By this activity, we can see the Americans respect those minorities.
Finally, Puerto Rican Americans are the most poorest among the Hispanics. U.S. government and the Puerto Ricans should face the problem and resolve it together.
