<<Since the 1960's in the beginning of the immigration pattern from Latin America, thousands of Paraguayans began to settle in the U.S. either as political refugees fleeing from the Alfredo Stroessner regime (1954-89) or for economic reasons (upper-middle class professionals and businessmen) since Paraguay is an economically troubled and poverty-stricken country. The most popular locations for Paraguayan immigrants are Miami, New York City and Washington, DC.

The Paraguayan community are of multiethnic backgrounds: such as Brazilian, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Lebanese Arab, Polish, Ukrainian and Anglo American ancestries, but under 5 percent of Paraguayans would be counted as White Hispanic for possessing few Amerindian ancestors.

Also about four-fifths (80) of Paraguayans are mestizo or mixed Spanish blood (mostly with indigenous Guarani people known for their language, co-official and widely spoken in the country) and one-tenth (10%) are full-blooded or culturally Amerindian.>>''

Interestingly, Paraguay is a country supplemented by some levels of European and North American immigration, same goes to Argentina, Uruguay and especially Brazil in the late 19th and 20th centuries. Groups such as Mennonites from Central Canada went to Paraguay (the Gran Chaco region) and some Confederados (exiled Anglo-Americans from the Southern U.S. after the civil war) left their mark on cultures all across South America. An estimated tens of thousands of U.S. American expatriates now live in South America restarted the movement of Anglos downward in the Hispanosphere or Latin America, and Paraguay offered great deals in low-cost land ownership sales.
