The New Immigrant Press in the New York Area

The immigrant press reflects the changing profile of the newcomers arriving in the New York area from other parts of the world. Although most are immigrants, many are businessmen with their families comming to the US for up to five years before returning home. Some who come as immigrants also return after a period of time. These new people are often more affluent and educated than those from earlier immigrant weaves. Many are seeking a better education for their children and investment opportunities for themselves. Although technology has eased the transition for them from one culture to another, language remians the key to acculturation in the new environment and assimilation into a global society.
