One in Four newborn Americans is Latino. Now, more than ever before, to understand the future of this country, it helps to understand young Latinos.
A new study out from the Pew Hispanic Center shows that, as a group, Latinos coming of age in America are optimistic about the future, but burdened by poverty, teen pregnancy, and gang activity.
