Hispanics in America Every day, Hispanics in America face challenges that they have to overcome, but they often have trouble overcoming them.

Hispanic children also have to go to school and aren’t allowed to make money due to laws on children working in America. In America, Hispanics face many challenges on a daily basis from food insecurity to low income.
In many countries living in extremely poor conditions, not only is basic health an issue but also the lack of education. Although it is a necessity, “more than 72 million children of primary education age are not in school and 759 million adults are illiterate” (Rights to Education 1).

While reading Enrique’s Journey, written by Sonia Nazario, a lot of themes were brought out throughout the book that served different meaning in Enrique’s story. The theme that stood out to me, was his journey because Enrique traveled all the way from Honduras to find his mom, who stayed in the United States. There are times in the book when he falls victim to his own shortcomings: doing drugs, tantalizing his mother, mismanaging his finances. He is ready to take yet another journey, this time marked by responsibility instead of adolescent rebellion and resentment. However, Enrique's journey is not only physical, but also mental as he grows from a boy to a man.

Not only do immigrants cost America financially, but they also need housing, education, healthcare, and jobs which all have an individual impact from immigrants.
