Also large numbers of immigrants from Indochine, Vietnam, Cuba came to the Us, but in the beginning the assimilation was difficult, but in the end they became typical Americans and opened businesses and were owner of small houses. Then Spanish-speaking immigrants from cental and South Africa came to the US, some legally, some illegally.
