Approximately 5% of the population of Latin America (about 25-30 million people) are currently immigrant Arabs and their descendants. The number varies from 2% in Uruguay to 9% in Argentina. More than 90% of them (depending on the country) are Christians. There is little to hear about the Arabs in Latin America, as they are integrating harmoniously into the existing society and merge with the local population, unlike the Muslim Arabs in Europe. Ethnic enclaves are not formed here, and their native language is not used in the second generation. Most marriages are outside the community. Moreover, local Syrians and Lebanese during the existence of the diaspora were able to join the elite in Latin American countries. Their successes in a sense can be compared to the successes of Jews in the United States. Obviously, Christian Arabs come to these far from the most prosperous countries to work and benefit society, and not to live on social benefits easily accessible to immigrants in Western Europe. Suffice it to say that the person recognized as one the richest in the world - Carlos Slim - by origin is Lebanon-Mexican. The President of Argentina in 1989-1999 - Carlos Menem - the Syrian. The current president of Brazil has Lebanese roots. The three Ecuadorian presidents were Lebanese, as did Colombian President Julio Tubay. Vice-presidents of Uruguay and Brazil - the Lebanese. At least two of the Central American presidents were of Palestinian origin. The world famous were Lebanese fathers, actress Salma Hayek and singer Shakira Mebarak.
