*Lecture Abstract*

 AMERICA IS IN THE HEART:

HISTORY OF FILIPINO MIGRATION TO THE U.S.

 Filipino migration to the US began during the early years of the U.S.’
colonization of the Philippines and has continued to this very day.
According to the most recent U.S. Census, there are more than 2. 5 million
Filipinos in the United States, making us the second biggest immigration
group next only to Mexico.



This presentation will try to cover the following concerns:

-What is the current state of the Filipino diaspora to the U.S.?

- What are the historical factors that gave birth to this phenomenon and
helped shape the characteristics of every major Filipino immigration wave
to the US?

 -What are the issues confronting Filipino American communities in the US
today?
