The immigration reform has everyone looking into the future economy of the United States. The Hispanic Population is projected to grow by 2040. Latinos need to begin creating pathways for financial security if they plan to live in this country. In order to feel really integrated into society Latinos must be given the opportunity to settle into a new home be able to find a job and own a car.
I find the most challenging tasks for new immigrant families are setting up a bank account, leasing an apartment among many other things. There is one credit union that has set out a mission to serve the Latino Community. It is the first and only branch that does not require entering in [a taxpayer ID number] or a social security number.
Immigrants should become accustomed to using the financial system of saving money in the bank because they are a part of our communities. It would be unfair and immoral to strip hard working people of the right to secure their funds.
