In line with his mission to serve the interests of Spain in the United States, in various articles De Onís described the latter as a "Hispanic" country due to the vestiges of colonial Spain still present in its territory. Considering it an example of these vestiges, De Onís frequently visited and paid special attention to the centers of the well established Sephardic community in New York and promoted the creation of the Sephardic studies section of the Hispanic Institute.
