Hispanics now account for more than half the U.S. population growth this decade, indicating a powerful new sign of their demographic clout, according to a Pew Hispanic Center report released Thursday.

The Hispanic population also expanded dramatically in the 1990s, but in that decade its growth accounted for less than 40 percent of the nation's total population increase.

And the growth rate of said 'Hispanic' population is slowing down-----------rapidly. In fact: California had to revise downward its population growth projections for the above reason.

Can you please provide a source(s) for this info?

Edit: It appears that I accidentally deleted my own post. I don't know how that happened.

Not sure offhand: I may have read it in a newspaper a year or two ago.

How can this be when for the last 3-4 years their estimate(although we know it's different) stayed right around 12million?
I want to see some legal statistics.

My opinion only here:

That '12 million' figure sounds high to me..........maybe the pundits came up with that number by counting the same illegals crossing the borders.

That stated: factoring in the US born Anchor Babies; that may explain the ca. 12-20 million 'illegal' number (some of whom are indeed illegals) here.

Ok... the stink center is talking about population "growth", in other words...Anchor Brats. which is still a small percentage of the total population.

Last time I checked folks are free to procreate. Race is not relevent... I remember when I heard white adults say blacks breed like rats. I am 45 yrs old. It was wrong then and it is wrong now. Illegals procreating and dropping anchor babies? We need to change our laws and deny citizenship to such.
