Hispanics are entitled to give birth to as many children as they choose, as long as they are here legally, and can afford to support them without government aid. However, I would be very interested in knowing the birth rate of Hispanic illegal aliens in this country. I doubt they are limiting their families to 2.3 children, given that the majority of “suspected” illegals I see are either pregnant, recently gave birth, or have a minimum of 3 or 4 stair-steps in tow.

The birth rate among Hispanic teenagers in Utah is higher than other teenagers, in part because of cultural differences and lack of sex education, according to a state Department of Health report released on Wednesday, the Salt Lake Tribune reports. The report is part of series of health disparities research from the health department. According to the report, 66 of every 1,000 Hispanic girls ages 15 to 17 gave birth in 2006 to 2007. Overall, nearly 18 out of every 1,000 girls of the same age group gave birth between 2006 and 2007.

Officials said the finding can be attributed to a number of issues teenagers face nationwide, including peer pressure, lack of parental involvement and education, poverty and sexual messages in the media. Other factors, such as a generational and cultural gaps between parents and children, a cultural acceptance of teen pregnancy and a tolerance for older men dating younger girls, are linked to Hispanic girls' higher birth rates, the Tribune reports. Lack of high school education and adult supervision also are risk factors for teen pregnancy in the Hispanic community, according to the Tribune.

I am sure they are talking about the children of illegal immigrants.
