UNION TOWNSHIP Theodore Jakubowski has seen this before.
The 64-year-old man saw it as a child growing up in Union Township, as Italian, Irish and Polish families came to his community in droves after World War II and learned to live together despite their differences.
And now things are changing again in Union, and in few places in New Jersey is that change happening as quickly or as completely as it is here in this town of 56,600.

Most with low level education and skills. Not much good to NJ but easy to rule over for the leftists.
That is the end of Union, NJ.
So, not as horrible as nearby towns.
if he is 64 he was born in 1955 10 years after WW2 - how could he see the changes that occured at that time.
Shush - this is all about explaining how immigration from Germany and Italy is exactly the same as immigration from Africa, India and Asia.
It would be interesting to see the amount of aid going to this town now as compared to fifty years ago.
I was taught by my Dad that America is The Melting Pot.
I applaud those who come here legally because they love our Constitution and American culture.
I find it disheartening to read in this article that the Filipino members of this community raised money to send back to the Philippines.
They couldnt help out their fellow Americans?
And probably wasn’t aware of such things until the early 1960’s when he started attending school.
Yep. “Ignore what you are seeing! Listen to what we say. This is good. Diversity is our strength. ALL IS WELL!”
The article is misdirection. Even though economic and social norms are important they pale in comparison to the cultural difference between Muslim and Christians. With population growth tending to be mainly in Muslim dominated countries. With Christians having smaller families a natural vacuum is created.
In reality it is far less culturally impacting that much of the population shift in the United States is coming from non Muslim countries.
It is a symptom of the end of NEW JERSEY; many of these are the “replacement Americans” trafficked here to replace the Americans dying off or fleeing. Both NJ and neighboring NY are having a very difficult time retaining young Americans. There are high costs combined with a McJobs economy, as many of the employers have fled the high costs.
Remaining private-sector employers find it easier to hire imported Asian scabs for white-collar, and the bloated public sector is primarily affirmative-action token hiring.
As families move from high-cost areas to lower-cost ones within the state, the costs rise with the school population - the primary driver of our high property taxes. American homeowners see no reason to pay for all the foreign students, so they pack up and leave.
What is needed is an active Republican group to welcome them and properly educate them.
The Americans disappearing from these areas are often post-Christian pagans; that is why American families are becoming a rarity. My town (about a dozen miles north of Union NJ) put up a “bark park” for the ageing childless Americans a few years back; a little further south they had built a new soccer field for the children of the “replacement Americans”.
Obviously, there have been a large number of real estate transactions in Union City and each of those had a buyer and seller or a lessor and lessee.
Each party has been a willing participant in these real estate transactions.
The economics is blind to demographics.
This is not about Union City (in my county); it is about Union Township (in Union County).
Another sewer like Newark, in the making.
Westfield, Summit and Scotch Plains.
These are all high end towns - snooty rich liberals ...
Thats for the correction.
America is game of survival. Newcomers need skills to find a job AND place to raise family. Selection of a safe place for a relatively long time is key, because housing is still big saving vehicle for working people. You got to know your surrounding and how likely it changes over time
No problem; Union City has a LOT more foreigners than Union Township - over 75% Hispanic.
