Here is a chart concluding Mexico's fertility rate:

Timely article in El Diario today -- kind of applies to this topic:


Para dar a luz, cruzan a EU 300 mil al año | Diario.com.mx: Edición Cd. Juárez

300 thousand pregnant Mexican women cross into the USA a year to give birth. “bebés ancla” (anchor babies)

El Paso— Cada año, procedentes del sur de la frontera, principalmente de México, más de 300 mil mujeres embarazadas cruzan hacia este país con el propósito de que sus hijos nazcan aquí y se conviertan en ciudadanos norteamericanos.
Los recién nacidos bajo estas circunstancias se denominan “bebés ancla” (anchor babies) y, sin sospecharlo, cambian sus vidas y las de sus familas, pero no siempre para su beneficio.
Con nueve meses y 10 días de embarazo, Yvette, de 29 años, atravesó caminando el puente internacional de Córdova proveniente de Ciudad Juárez hacia El Paso, con el propósito de alcanzar a dar a luz en un centro de parteras, pero justo antes de llegar a la Aduana estadounidense se le rompió la fuente y comenzó a sentir intensas contracciones.
“Me sentí sola, y se me hizo un nudo de tristeza en la garganta”, recordó Yvette.

Ok so Anchor babies would be representing the Hispanic birthrate in America right? The number stands at 2.3 since of May this year doesn't it? Or do these Hispanic anchor babies account for a different ethnicity ?

Actually, it's just good propaganda. The best lies always have an element of truth.

Southern Poverty Law Center

Q : Who is the "Southern Poverty Law Center"?
A : National Council of La Raza sure likes dropping their name a lot . . and they have a neat map on their website where you racists can find other racist groups to belong to. Tired of feeling alone? Want to find other racists like yourself? Southern Poverty Law Center can help you be part of a racist group. According to this map, California is a great place to go if you're a racist.

That la raza witch on Lou Dobbs one night threatened him with the Southern Poverty Law Center, "We're watching you . . we're counting your hate speech code words", etc. "I'll get you my pretty . . and you're little dog too!"

What a flake! Is economic parasite a code word? I use that one a lot.

I couldn't resist it after reading r601020's post containing the words from the Wizard of Oz. Sometimes it’s hard for me to contain my silliness. I’m glad you and ‘some’ others appreciate a little humor.
