I’ve lived in the East for most of my life, and I can attest to the fact that I met Latinos from a variety of national origins. Mexican, Puerto Rican, Dominican, Cuban, Brazilian, Ecuradoran, Nicaraguan, etc. It was only when I came to the Inland empire that I started to meet only Mexican Latinos on a day to day basis.


As for Chicago as a hub, I think some earlier posters hit it on the head. I also think relative proximity to the Western US and Mexico compared to the Eastern cities helped bring a lot of Mexicans to Chicago.
