Abstract: Immigration has a long tradition in Argentina. In the years of the great transatlantic migrations Argentina developed into one of the most important immigration destinations in the New World, second only to the United States. Immigrants from Europe were regarded as agents of change who were expected to lead the country towards a path to civilization and modernity. Nowadays, immigrants from other Latin American states prevail. Their immigration challenges the dominant and popular image of a "white" society, a position shared by many Argentines.
