Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. When you want to know the definition of a word, always look in a good dictionary. Here is what one dictionary online says:

refugee = Main Entry: ref·u·gee
Pronunciation: "re-fyu-'jE, 're-fyu-"
Function: noun
Etymology: French réfugié, past participle of (se) réfugier to take refuge, from Latin refugium
Date: 1685
: one that flees; especially : a person who flees to a foreign country or power to escape danger or persecution
- ref·u·gee·ism /-"i-z&m/ noun

immigrant = Main Entry: im·mi·grant
Pronunciation: 'i-mi-gr&nt
Function: noun
Date: 1789
: one that immigrates: as a : a person who comes to a country to take up permanent residence b : a plant or animal that becomes established in an area where it was previously unknown
- immigrant adjective

Now, if you look closely, you will see that one arrives on a temporary basis while the other intends to stay.

Many factores might contribute to the economic problem of Hispanics: age, nativity, residence, education, prejudice, health, etc. Principally the lack of educational achievement is an impediment. To Hispanics, the family is far more important than education so those at a poverty level often have to help the family financially rather than concentrating on education. Better education usually means better employment.
