- - Summary of audio segment: In the 1980s the Dominicans started buying Puerto Ricans out of the small businesses. Before that Dominicans worked in factories, etc. The next wave of immigration was the Colombians, and now it's the Peruvians. Does each group apply for status adjustments? RS says yes. Are the Peruvians, the most recent group? RS says yes. Most of the Peruvians, and the few Mexicans, the few that are here, stay temporarily. It's very, very hard for Mexicans to establish residency in the US. Most of them are farm workers, they come here, establish work a few months, and then leave.
