In our society, usually assimilation and integration of immigrants and minorities are goals--at least it was until our big "diversity" and "multi-cultural" push by liberals. So how are the states doing? West Virginia has been the most successful with Hispanics who have adapted to mainstream American society relative to where they live, and Massachusetts is #51. The study uses 17 indicators, everything from English language to home ownership. Massachusetts has super majorities in both houses for Democrats, and has only voted twice since 1960 for a Republican president. Only two progressive NE states are even in the top 30. Democrats favor keeping immigrants in little cultural boxes speaking the language of their grandparents so they can be a voting block; Republicans encourage full integration of immigrants taking advantage of all this country can offer.
