Study: More than one in five children in U.S. are Latino
Orange County Register (CA) ^ | May 28, 2009 | BY CINDY CARCAMO

Posted on 05/28/2009 1:22:55 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

More than one in five of all children in the United States are Hispanic – a significant jump from 29 years ago when only about 9 percent of children were Latino, according to a Pew Hispanic report released today.

The study, called "Latino Children: A majority are U.S.-Born offspring of Immigrants," states that more than half of the nation's 16 million Latino children are now "second generation," which means they are the U.S.-born children of at least one foreign-born parent. In California the number of second generation Latino children is 62 percent.

That is true....and will only grow worse.

That is....unless we remove all repeat, ALL the illegal aliens from this country, then seal the border so that only those entering this country legally are able to.

Then the ratio drops back to one in 100....still too high, but where it should be.

It’s fine with me as long as they are citizens and their parents are here legally. I have lots of Hispanic friends. One thing tho, can they finally all agree on what to be called? It seems to change from one trendy thing to another. Or, how about a better idea? How about we stop thinking of Americans as an ethnicity and just think of them as Americans? Wouldn’t THAT destroy the Democratic party.

Somewhere between 2025 and 2035, the United States will cease to be a nation where White northern Europeans will have self-rule.

The first reaction many of you will have, is to say, “So what?”

Folks, if you can take a look at this nation and not understand how one sided things are already, then your head is just not in the game.

Look at the trouble there is now related to race. Just imagine what it will be like when the race baiters are in charge.

Nonsense. We take in 1.2 million legal immigrants a year, about 70% are Hispanic. And the birthrate for Hispanics is double the general population. We could cut off all illegal immigration tomorrow and we would still have a huge Hispanic population. One in three residents of California is Hispanic today.

Unless the life chances of children raised by single mothers suddenly improve, the explosive growth of the U.S. Hispanic population over the next couple of decades does not bode well for American social stability. Hispanic immigrants bring near–Third World levels of fertility to America, coupled with what were once thought to be First World levels of illegitimacy. (In fact, family breakdown is higher in many Hispanic countries than here.) Nearly half of the children born to Hispanic mothers in the U.S. are born out of wedlock, a proportion that has been increasing rapidly with no signs of slowing down. Given what psychologists and sociologists now know about the much higher likelihood of social pathology among those who grow up in single-mother households, the Hispanic baby boom is certain to produce more juvenile delinquents, more school failure, more welfare use, and more teen pregnancy in the future.

The problem is when immigrants don’t want to become a part of the culture that made the country great,

and bring with them the culture that made their country a shithole that they had to escape from,

and try to establish that culture here.

Yes, Obamomination you are transparent.

This is WHY he wants gender idenity candidate, Judge Sonia Sotomayor - th eHispanic female with quite the mouth:

A 2004 opinion she joined also cited as precedent that “the right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental right.”

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/05/28/sotomayors-gun-control-positions-prompt-conservative-backlash/

Conservatives are focusing on a speech Ms. Sotomayor delivered at the University of California at Berkeley law school, where she said, “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

...

“Imagine a judicial nominee said ‘my experience as a white man makes me better than a Latina woman.’

Wouldn’t they have to withdraw?” asked former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on his Web site. “New racism is no better than old racism.”

...

“We’re all extremely pleased at how the first 24 hours went,” said Sen. Charles Schumer (D., N.Y.), who has been assigned to chaperone the Bronx-born judge through her confirmation.

The Hispanic Challenge By Samuel P. Huntington: The persistent inflow of Hispanic immigrants threatens to divide the United States into two peoples, two cultures, and two languages. Unlike past immigrant groups, Mexicans and other Latinos have not assimilated into mainstream U.S. culture, forming instead their own political and linguistic enclaves—from Los Angeles to Miami—and rejecting the Anglo-Protestant values that built the American dream. The United States ignores this challenge at its peril.

I agree 100%, but it's never going to happen with that many children being born here. The American voter will soften under the relentless assault of Democrats and the MSM (the same entity, I know). There will be amnesty.

...that’s the problem! We continue to dillute English as our national language. Few come here with the will to assimilate or to learn the history of the country in which they adopted.

“That is a horrifying number!”

That’s the difference with this migration from any other into this country.
________

More than 1 million people became citizens in 2008, with 780,000 taking the oath of allegiance in the first 10 months, according to preliminary figures from the Department of Homeland Security. In 2007, 660,477 people were granted U.S. citizenship.

Leading countries of birth of new citizens were:
Mexico (122,258), India (46,871), Philippines (38,830), China (33,134) and Vietnam (27,921)

Largest number of people naturalizing lived in:
California (181,684), New York (73,676) and Florida (54,563).

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hispanics made up nearly half of the more than 1 million people who became U.S. citizens last year, according to a Hispanic advocacy group. The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials said the number of Latinos who became Americans in fiscal year 2008 more than doubled over the previous year, to 461,317. That’s nearly half of the record 1,046,539 new citizens overall in 2008, a 58 percent increase from 2007. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5gQKI-mUtzRTYIm7MjslLxEoz2zVgD97DFPI01

Study: Illegal Immigrants Having More Kids In US Associated Press ^ | April 14, 2009
http://www.thedenverchannel.com/money/19175382/detail.html

Growing numbers of children of illegal immigrants are being born in this country, and they are nearly twice as likely to live in poverty than those with American-born parents...

Overall, illegal immigrants’ children account for one of every 15 students in kindergarten through 12th grade. In 2008, California had the most illegal immigrants at 2.7 million, double its 1990 number, followed by Texas, Florida, New York and New Jersey.

“In the next eight years, the violent collection of criminal drug cartels could overwhelm the state and establish de facto control over broad regions of northern Mexico,” McCaffrey’s report said. “A failure by the Mexican political system to curtail lawlessness and violence could result in a surge of millions of refugees crossing the U.S. border.”

“That is a horrifying number!”

Just because someone has a hispanic surname (or brown skin for that matter) does not automatically classify that individual as liberal, anti-american, pro-illegal immigration, nor necessarily strong identity with hispanic ethnicity.

All Americans with German surnames for example, do not necessarily speak German nor identify themselves as German (just because an ancestor had a German surname).

Quite the contrary. ‘Hispanic’ women abort at twice the rate of white Americans.

snip]First, the good news. The abortion rate fell to its lowest level since 1974-—20/1,000 women of childbearing age (15-44). In 1980 there were 29 abortions per thousand women,....Consequently, by 2004, “there were 10.5 abortions per 1,000 white women ages 15 to 44, compared with 28 per 1,000 Hispanic women of that age

I tried to put my kids in public school back around 1984. My two children were one of only a few white kids in their classes. This was in Glendale, California. They spent between 33 and 50% of their days, reading while the teacher taught the other students English. At recess time the Latino kids would gang up and pick on the White kids. I yanked them out of there and paid to have them educated at a parochial school.

I tried to herald the problems of our nation being flooded by illegals ever since. And frankly, it was a very lonely task. Nobody but nobody wanted to listen. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had people from out of state tell me it was my racism that was the real problem.

Well, now it’s everyone’s problem. We’ll all have to deal with it, and when all is said and done, we can expect to have the leaders of La Raza, MALDEF, Mecha, and many other groups serving en La Casa Blanco and el Congress del Estadios Unido. And after they’ve nominated and affirmed enough people, our SCOTUS will be gone as well.

Yes, they were complained about, with good reason. They left a crime ridden, poverty stricken mess and brought it with them. The government finally figured out when to stop the flow. That’s what we haven’t figured out yet this time.

These socialist 3rd worlders want to change this country into just another Mexico with more handouts. I don’t understand how you can encourage a group of people who have vowed to take over this country. And they are well on their way, as evidenced by the most recent LaRaza Scotus nominee.

This country is dying everyday for many reasons, thanks to liberals but one reason in particular is “wealth envy” and “race baiting”. Poor Latinos leads to more government hand outs. Whites are being assaulted just for being white. Imagine more latinos to swing the tide even more.

Too many of the "free" geniuses in this country traded their freedom for license. This is the sad result.

They had the freedom to have as many children as they wanted. They chose to have 1.6 and party like it's 1999.

The only consolation is that Europe is worse off and there's still some time for America to figure things out.

Right now the fertility rate in the US is 2.1 or replacement rate. The problem is that we are bringing in 1.2 million legal immigrants a year, most of them poor and uneducated. In the next 40 years we will add about 135 million people, 75% from immigration.

The only consolation is that Europe is worse off and there's still some time for America to figure things out.

The U.S. adds one international migrant (net) every 36 seconds. Immigrants account for one in 8 U.S. residents, the highest level in more than 80 years. In 1970 it was one in 21; in 1980 it was one in 16; and in 1990 it was one in 13. In a decade, it will be one in 7, the highest it has been in our history. And by 2050, one in 5 residents of the U.S. will be foreign-born. Currently, 1.6 million legal and illegal immigrants settle in the country each year; 350,000 immigrants leave each year, resulting in net immigration of 1.25 million. Since 1970, the U.S. population has increased from 203 million to 306 million, i.e., over 100 million. In the next 40 years, the population will increase by 133 million to 439 million. Three-quarters of the increase in our population since 1970 and the projected increase will be the result of immigration. The U.S., the world’s third most populous nation, has the highest annual rate of population growth of any developed country in the world, i.e., 0.975 percent (2009 estimate), principally due to immigration.
