The history of Hispanics in Arizona is largely the history of the interaction of that ethnic group with Anglos. Until fairly recently, the ability of Hispanics to exert political and economic power depended on their numbers. When Anglo immigration increased, and Mexican Americans became a true minority, racial conflict and discrimination began. Since the 1960s, however, increased political activism and involvement in issues such as civil rights, labor organization, and education have offered Hispanics the ability to participate in, and influence, state and local government as well as economic and social institutions. -from Author
