Latino Politics in America
Nationalism is an idea and movement that promotes the interests of a particular nation as in a group of people ,  especially with the aim of gaining and maintaining the nation's sovereignty self-governance over its homeland. Nationalism holds that each nation should govern itself, free from outside interference self-determination , that a nation is a natural and ideal basis for a polity  and that the nation is the only rightful source of political power popular sovereignty. Throughout history, people have had an attachment to their kin group and traditions , territorial authorities and their homeland, but nationalism did not become a widely recognized concept until the end of the 18th century. Primordialism perennialism proposes that there have always been nations and that nationalism is a natural phenomenon. Ethnosymbolism explains nationalism as a dynamic, evolutionary phenomenon and stresses the importance of symbols, myths and traditions in the development of nations and nationalism. Modernization theory proposes that nationalism is a recent social phenomenon that needs the socio-economic structures of modern society to exist. There are various definitions of a "nation" which leads to different types of nationalism.
Cultural assimilation is the process in which a minority group or culture comes to resemble a society's majority group or assume the values, behaviors, and beliefs of another group. Cultural assimilation may involve either a quick or a gradual change depending on the circumstances of the group. Full assimilation occurs when members of a society become indistinguishable from those of the group dominating that society. Whether a given group should assimilate is often disputed by both members of the group and others in society. Cultural assimilation does not guarantee social alikeness. Geographical and other natural barriers between cultures, even if created by the predominant culture, may be culturally different. Various types of assimilation, including forced cultural assimilation, is particularly relevant in regards to Indigenous groups during colonialism taking place between the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
Metrics details. Hispanics are the largest minority group in the USA. They contribute to the economy, cultural diversity, and health of the nation. Assessing their health status and health needs is key to inform health policy formulation and program implementation. To this end, we conducted a scoping review of the literature and national statistics on Hispanic health in the USA using a modified social-ecological framework that includes social determinants of health, health disparities, risk factors, and health services, as they shape the leading causes of morbidity and mortality. These social, environmental, and biological forces have modified the epidemiologic profile of Hispanics in the USA, with cancer being the leading cause of mortality, followed by cardiovascular diseases and unintentional injuries.

A Commentary on the Latin American Paradox
Mexican authorities have been waging a deadly battle against drug cartels for more than a decade, but with limited success. Thousands of Mexicans—including politicians, students, and journalists—die in the conflict every year. The country has seen more than three hundred thousand homicides since , when the government declared war on the cartels. The United States has partnered closely with its southern neighbor in this fight, providing Mexico with billions of dollars to modernize its security forces, reform its judicial system, and make other investments. Washington has also sought to stem the flow of illegal drugs into the United States by bolstering security along its border.
The term multiculturalism has a range of meanings within the contexts of sociology , of political philosophy , and of colloquial use. In sociology and in everyday usage, it is a synonym for " ethnic pluralism ", with the two terms often used interchangeably, for example, a cultural pluralism  in which various ethnic groups collaborate and enter into a dialogue with one another without having to sacrifice their particular identities. It can describe a mixed ethnic community area where multiple cultural traditions exist such as New York City or Trieste or a single country within which they do such as Switzerland, Belgium or Russia.
Using World Health Organization data for and , Chen et al 1 analyzed all premature deaths defined as those occurring in individuals aged years among US Latino, African American, and white populations and Puerto Rican and 12 other Latin American populations. Their major findings were that US Latina women had the lowest premature mortality rate of all populations studied and that mortality among US Latino men was lower than that among all populations except for Peruvian individuals. Their other significant finding—specifically, that US Latino populations have lower mortality rates than US white populations—adds to the literature documenting the Latino mortality paradox. The study by Chen et al 1 is important because their analysis of individuals in Latin America represents the source population of US Latino groups.
