Peninsular-Creole relationships by late 19th century

Mar 2015
Relevant to late 19th and early 20th century.
How did Spanish American states get along with Spain by then? Last attempts by Spain to recover lands were in 1860s, in Dominican Republic and Peru, but how much was there hostility to Spain and Peninsulars in other countries?

Especially Argentina felt there was plenty of space for immigrants between 1860 and 1914. How were individual Peninsulars received who desired to become permanent residents and citizens of American republics?

In Argentina, for some reason most immigrants were Italian. How many were Peninsulars?

I too would have asserted that Creole is mixed race.

"Creole, Spanish Criollo, French Créole, originally, any person of European (mostly French or Spanish) or African descent born in the West Indies or parts of French or Spanish America."

"In Spanish colonial America, Creoles were generally excluded from high office in both church and state, although legally Spaniards and Creoles were equals."
Thanks for the insight!
