There are only 100,000 Spaniards living in the USA as of 2015. Usually for there to be an anti-[insert nationality] sentiment in a country, there has to be a relatively large influx of them. That is not the case with Spaniards.
Not only that, but Spanish immigrants to other countries are typically educated and come from middle class backgrounds, not low-income, low/no education immigrants.
Spaniards don't really face anything that other European immigrants don't in the USA. The only exception is that Americans are extremely confused about Spaniards and Spanish people and Spanish speakers and will often conflate Spaniards with being Latin Americans or vice-versa. For example, there are plenty of ignorant Americans who think Spanish people aren't white because they speak Spanish or that Spanish people aren't European or that Latin Americans are Spanish, etc.
I am half Spanish. My mom is from Spain. Her cousin also lives here in the USA in some small town. He is also Spanish.
Regardless, the vast majority of Americans treat people decently no matter where they're from.

Spaniards aren't relevant in the USA. They hardly move here so we aren't exposed to them.

Most of population in the US doesn't have a problem with anyone, but you still find racists around here. They come in all "colors".
The US and the confederate south both picked Roman Latin mottos to represent their nations. So we know the Latins were clearly included in their heritage. However, bigots don't care about history. So, you'll need to look like their version of something for them to accept you ... And that "look" will change from individual to individual.
And just to keep this answer historically accurate - Spaniards are one of the groups from Hispania (Hispanics) *and* they also one of the groups who make up the Latino according to the Roman Latini. These words were used in Europe before the Americas were "discovered".

I don't judge people by their nationality.

The US is not a xenophobic nation.

You make some assertions that are simply wrong. Perhaps visit the US a few times to get what's really going on here before you post these questions based on your own remote biases.
