Smallest Cinco de Mayo celebrations in the nation

So I felt obliged to actually look up some specific immigration stats for Pennsylvania's 12th legislative district... whose current incumbent is in some related news of late.

From the 2000 Census:

Total population: 61,117 
Total foreign born: 1,182 or 1.9% of the total population.
Total foreign born who arrived in the most recent decade: 397 or 0.65% of the total population
Of those who are not currently citizens: 330 or 0.54% of the total population
Total Hispanic of Latino population: 534
of them, total population who speak English "not well" or "not at all" (that was a census question a decade ago):  7

But it is a diverse district in a sense.  Many many more foreigners than African Americans reside in the district.
