They are cognizant of the hardships faced day-by-day by people of their kind. Chicano/as still face discrimination in many ways and they aspire to bring in change.

Every year hundreds of thousands of immigrants, both legal and illegal, from around the pacific, come to Guam in hopes for a better life. Many of these people, mainly islanders of the pacific, believe that Guam is the best place to go. With more freedom, protection, opportunities, and benefits Guam offers a taste of the American dream to immigrants who do not want to go to the mainland. However, due to the gradual exponential growth of immigrant rates to Guam, immigration has become a major issue to the island and its inhabitants.
