Hispanics are divided about their place in America after Trump’s election.
As Obama’s time in office nears its end, the U.S. remains short of his goal to produce more college graduates by 2020.
Though many Trump supporters say illegal immigration is a serious problem in the U.S. and want to build the wall, they are more divided on other questions.

In a year when support for Democratic candidates has eroded, the party's standing among Latinos appears as strong as ever. However, Hispanic voters appear to be less motivated than others to go to the polls.
Latinos, who heavily supported Obama in the November election, rate such issues as the economy, health care and education as the more important issues facing the country. Hispanics were more likely to be first time voters than the general public.
