Why are some sociocultural groups fearful of assimilation into American society? Don't these
sociocultural groups realize that in order to achieve the greatest measure of success one has to assimilate & that assimilation isn't congruous to losing one's sociocultural identity?
Mexico fights assimilation of Mexican immigrants in order to keep remittances flowing home. 10% of their adult population lives in the US, and if they see this as their home, they are less likely to send money back to Mexico or build houses that they hope to return to.
Social and Cultural are distinct. There is no such thing as a socioculture. There is a Sociocultural Theory but it does not address a dynamic where these two distinct ideas are blended. It focuses on the benefits of social interaction in improved cognition; there in suggesting that people or persons from a different culture should socialize outside their own comfort zone.
It really isn't appropriate to use the word congruous as a negative here. In others words to be in agreement or in harmony with losing is contradictory.
The fore mentioned theory is a lot of academic dribble about obvious cultural and social dynamics. Assimilation is natural to people of a different culture settling somewhere new. It fails to work however when ignorant government officials create policies that entitle immigrants and engineer society to alleviate the need for assimilation.
