His opening paragraph: The persistent inflow of Hispanic immigrants threatens to divide the United States into two peoples, two cultures, and two languages. Unlike past immigrant groups, Mexicans and other Latinos have not assimilated... rejecting the Anglo-Protestant values that built the American dream. The U.S. ignores this challenge at its peril.
His next to last paragraph: The transformation of the United States... would not necessarily be the end of the world; it would, however, be the end of the America we have known for more than three centuries. Americans should not let that change happen unless they are convinced that this new nation would be a better one. Huntington's last paragraph is a real doozy! Keep reading and you'll see!
