US - Pennsylvania town of Hazelton faces influx of migrants
Issued on: Modified:
In the mid-2000s, the small coal-mining town of Hazleton, Pennsylvania, was in a steep economic decline, with jobs dwindling and few opportunities of making a solid income. Now, just 10 years later, Hazleton seems to be on the rebound, but its population has also become 50 percent Latino. It's a story that's becoming more and more common across America, as small towns are forced to choose between preserving their “American” identities and saving their economies.
