How do you figure when there are only 50 million Hispanics in this country including those here illegally and there are 265 million non-hispanics in this country?

We've always been a melting pot, and it has worked superbly.

Embarrassing. We clearly are not doing enough to secure our border.

McCain reached out to give the illegal an "abrazo" and directed her to the nearest welfare office.

Given the birth rates of Hispanics compared to Anglos, yes, it's inevitable in 50 years or so. There's nothing wrong with that. If Anglos want to eschew raisng children and instead have that double income and the promotions, big house, all the toys, exotic vacations, and not be bothered with the nagging responsibilities of parenting, then they voluntarily forfeit their right to a leadership position in society. It is as it should be.

Yes, and immigrants are not being encouraged as they once were to be a part of that melting pot anymore but to retain their native tongues and cultures out in mainstream America by pandering to them in their native language. This is particulary true of Spanish speakers. It is a part of the new PC attitude in this country. Cohesion and assimilation is going out the window with the new salad bowl concept. I am not saying they aren't learning English but that it isn't being used as their primary language. This is what happens when diversity is no longer a priority and it is coupled with massive illegal immigration from same group.

Why would you just mention anglos? Non-hispanic whites, blacks, etc. are procreating at replacement levels. Most sane Americans are not having a half dozen kids because it is expensive to raise them in today's economy and not because they want their adult toys instead. Hispanics who are having the most kids are living at the poverty level. Is that good for this country or their kids? I don't think so. IMO, you're way off base on this one.

Ideally, we should level off on our population growth so that we have jobs for everyone and natural and social resources to sustain them.

I didn't say it would be good for the country. It is what will happen; the demographics are undeniable.
