First of all, immigrants to the USA don't go to colonize the country, they go there in order to have a better life, to live together with the americans, to give and take, not to colonize the country!
I was raised in France, as my family was immigrant, and it was not easy, so I think it would be better that the Royal family concerned about the needs of immigrants rather than emphasizing the perspective of a Spanish-speaking population for 2050 of 100 million people in US.

The Spanish painting, protagonist in the Guggenheim of New York

The pictorial Spanish art will be the absolute protagonist, from this night, in the Museum Guggenheim of New York. Pictures of El Greco, Velázquez, Miro, Claudio Coello, Murillo, Goya and Picasso, for mentioning the most out-standing, will be exhibited in the exhibition " Spanish Painting. Of the Greek one to Picasso. The time, the truth and the history ", that the Dukes of Lugo inaugurate this night. This project, which it covers the five most prolific centuries of the Spanish painting, was born six years ago, but the attempts of New York impeded putting in march. Between the works distributed by topics instead of for stages, historical paintings stand out as " The duchess of Alba " of Goya, " Virgin and the child " of Zurbarán, " The count - duke of Olivares " of Velázquez, or " The burial of the count Orgaz " of El Greco
