I'd not narrow it down just to anti-Hispanic. American is the land of equal opportunity bigotry. For instance a community I'm familiar with, Dearborn Michigan, has Farsi and Arabic very prevalent and I've seen many "those signs should be illegal here" type things.
IMO, there's a strong argument Chinese should be one of Canada's official languages. Not only are they the single biggest demographic that's not French or "Anglo" the majority of them either speak Chinese or were foreign born. Additionally, BC and Ontario have huge concentrations so we have living Chinese speaking communities.
