And I don't understand the parent part.
The youth are already well integrated. You wouldn't be able to tell the difference with a lot of them, as they speak perfect english and were raised by this country. Culturally, they are American, Legaly they are not. When they tell me "they don't want to abandon their culture", it's more about them feeling offended, as if i'm asking them to stop being Mexican.
The Problem is with their parents.
So when i talk about these sensitive subjects with them, their initial reaction to every question isn't about how it will affect them, but rather how it'll affect their parents.
