One of seven in U.S. is Hispanic Immigration and a higher birth rate account for record growth of the minority group By PAULINE JELINEK Associated Press RESOURCES Graphic: Hispanic Population Growth
WASHINGTON - One of every seven people in the United States is Hispanic, a record number that probably will keep rising because of immigration and a birth rate outstripping non-Hispanic blacks and whites.
The country's largest minority group accounted for one-half of the overall population growth of 2.9 million between July 2003 and July 2004, according to a Census Bureau report being released today.
The agency estimated there are 41.3 million Hispanics in the United States. The bureau does not ask people about their legal status; that number is intended to include both legal and other residents.
The population growth for Asians ran a close second.
Increases in both groups are the result largely to immigration, but also higher birth rates, said Lewis Goodman, an American University expert on U.S.-Latin American relatio
quickly overcoming the black population.
I'm one! And a conservative too. Howard Dean should be very scared.
You a Christian?
I had always heard that the high birthrate among Hispanics was due to 1) The majority are Catholic, and 2) the high poverty rate. Neither of these affect the Asians in the United States on a high level. Why is their birthrate so high?
I can't afford to have more kids to compensate. I'm still trying to make more money to pay for the welfare of everyone else.
Most hispanics are Chrstian as well, so that aught to freak the anti- God democrats out even more. The trouble is, many Hispanics are democrat.
I can live with that.. :)
Uhh, by our govt. ...NEVER !!!
Yes, heaven forbid the bureau check into the amount of illegals.
Hispanic?...like or similar to the people of Spain?
Latino?....of the Latins (Romans) or those who speak Latin..
or those who count the Romans as their ancestors?
Or those who speak a language derived from Latin..(Spanish)?
Maybe it's that "jump on the competition" thing...around here, especially at places like WalMart, you're inundated with 15 year old mommies pushing strollers...and with a second in the oven.
You are going about it all wrong. You are supposed to sit on welfare and pump out those kids, that way everyone pays your way.10 kids is a very large check! Then when your last kid turns 18, you can go back to school upgrade and get a job.
That's interesting. I had no idea. Of course, there aren't many Asians in Kentucky, so I don't have the exposure.
We do have that problem quite a bit, but it's white poverty-stricken girls here.
Now if 1 of 7 in U.S. is hispanic, and 1 of 10 in U.S. is gay, how many gay hispanics are there?
I married a man with an hispanic surname. His ancestors have lived in New Mexico forever. My husband does not speak spanish, nor does his father (since he started school).
My children are blonde/brown haired with green eyes, have never spoken spanish, and know very little about any hispanic culture their ancestors might have possessed, but because of the obviously "hispanic" surname they are always classified as such in school, work or elsewhere.
Doesn't even include the illegals, does it!
Here is a another thread on the same subject...
