Restrictive immigration policies since the s have further pushed the assimilation process. However, this did not have the desired effect mostly because of political instability.
Despite all of the aforementioned pressure, as of Mexico is the country with most international immigrants in the world. The only criteria for sample selection was that the volunteers self-identified as Mexicans. Mass culture promoted the Spanish language and most other European languages have declined and almost disappeared. Bllnde, even in the cases when generalized mixing did occur, such Mexicoo with the Cornish miners in Hidalgo state around Pachuca and Real de Monte, their cultural influence remains strong.
