DISCUSSION: The League of United Latin American Citizens and the Congress of Spanish Speaking People are mentioned on lines 18-26.
The League favored assimilation with America. The Congress wanted to keep the two cultures separate, and favored more rights for Mexicans along with bilingual education.
This question is asking what the League believed. So the answer will almost certainly be about assimilation. See lines 18-22.
- The passage never mentions what other United States Citizens believed. We only know about Mexican American groups.
- This is what the Congress believes, see lines 22-26.
- The author never says precisely what the League thought about immigration. According to line 29, both groups favored liberal reform. We know the League and the Congress fought about immigration (lines 30-32), but we don’t know which one favored a more liberal policy.
- This sounds like something the Congress believed. The League believed in assimilation, which would involve speaking English. See lines 18-22.
- CORRECT. Lines 18-22 say this: the League favored assimilation. Assimilation means adopting the culture of the country you’ve moved to.
