WASHINGTON - Deterred by immigration laws and the lackluster economy, the population growth of Hispanics and Asians in the U.S. has slowed unexpectedly, causing the government to push back estimates on when minorities will become the majority by as much as a decade.

Reading between the lines; the 'rollback' against illegal aliens is starting to take effect.

I am elated. The fewer non-English-speaking, identity-stealing, hospital-crowding, welfare-milking, breeding-like-mice illegals there are the better this country will be.

Now if the militant illegal immigrant-rights groups like La Raza would fade away, that would add a little more peace and tranquility.

That is great news!! At least it will keep the illegal population from entering Western Pennsylvania.

We have a bad economy with high unemployment.. It's time for the Illegal Aliens to step aside and allow the U.S. citizens to assume jobs that the Illegals have taken over.. Bussers at Restaurants, Gas Station Attendants, Custodians, etc..

With less stress on resources and medical care, the economic benefits would be abound..

Correct me if Im wrong, but, wouldn't the economy automatically be better if 12 to 20 million illegal alien scabs headed for home. Sure would create a LOT of jobs.

But they're only doing the jobs that 13 million+ unemployed Americans WILL NOT do.

Apparently if you believe pro-illegals, no. Our economy would be worse off.
