According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. will have a total of 28.6% Hispanics living in the country by 2060. Twenty-one percent of the millionaires in the U.S. are Caucasian, and less than 7% are Hispanic. However, immigrants are known to be hard workers and risk-takers. Immigrants are twice as likely as American-born citizens to start their own businesses according to the Kaufman research group. According to USAFIS, many foreign nationals who move to the United States have taken advantage of the great opportunities in the U.S. to start businesses, take on new jobs, and raise their families.
There are many Hispanics who have come to America and created successful business empires. One example is Carlos Castro, the president and CEO of Todos Supermarket. His chain of grocery stores caters to Latinos in the Washington, DC, area and is now a multimillion dollar business.
Another example is Jorge Perez, CEO and co-founder of The Related Group. According to Forbes, Perez has a net worth of $2.8 billion. Alberto “Beto” Perez is an immigrant turned entrepreneur from Brazil who started the popular Zumba fitness classes. His empire is now valued at $500 million.
USAFIS is a private immigration service that helps foreign nationals who want to move to the United States to work and start a new life.
