America has a history of cultural diversity, but now the growth of the Hispanic population is unlike any other minority group in our country's experience. By 2050, almost 1 in 4 Americans will be of Hispanic descent. This session will explore immigration policy: how flexible laws dating back to 1960s have resulted in an explosion in the Hispanic demographic from 7 million in 1970 to almost 57 million today and how this impacts our cultural, economic and political landscape. What should we understand about our changing population?

Clara E. Del Villar is Founder, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of the Hispanic Postproviding online aggregated business news, political, policy issue updates and profiles of innovative enterprises for the U.S Hispanic community.
