Among Mexican immigrants in the United States, for example, fertility averages 3.5 children per woman compared to 2.4 children per women in Mexico. Among Chinese immigrants, fertility is 2.3 in the United States compared to 1.7 in China. Immigrants from Canada have 1.9 children compared to 1.5 children in Canada.

While immigrants from the top-10-sending countries have more children than women in their home counties, for immigrants from three countries -- India, Vietnam, and the Philippines -- immigrant fertility is lower in the United States than in their home countries.

That's because the responsible people stay in school, delay having children until they've completed their education, obtained job skills and a job and so don't have to pack up and sneak illegally into another country, and if you notice it's the country with the biggest welfare handouts they choose.

The last I heard is that Illegals don't qualified for Goverment assistances when did the law change?

The moment they pop out that first anchor baby, they qualify.

Why else do you think they're breeding like bunnies? They certainly aren't taking the crappy dirt paying jobs that no American wants and having huge families because they're actually supporting those large families on those dirt low wages.

The cost of living in the USA is very very high. Mexicans in Mexico have fewer kids because they don't have a generous welfare system there but also the responsible hard working people in Mexico are creating the growing middle class of that country, they aren't sneaking over the borders.

We are basically subsidizing illegal immigrants to have large numbers of children. What sense does that make.

According to PEW Hispanic, Hispanics make up for 76% of all illegal immigrants:
A Portrait of Unauthorized Immigrants in the United States - Pew Hispanic Center

Now according to the US census there are approximately 45 million hispanics in the US and 34% of them are children.
US Census Press Releases (http://www.census.gov/Press-Release/www/releases/archives/population/011910.html - broken link)

34% of 45.5 million is: 15.47 million.
Since we have a very good idea of how many hispanic children we have in the US (Children being all those under the age of 18). Is it fair to say that even if 100% of all children born to illegal immigrants were hispanic (which is not true and impossible since only 76% of illegals are Hispanic, according to PEWhispanic.org) then, how can we conclude that 50% of all hispanic children born here are born to illegal parent(s)?

Is not mathematically possible.
As a Hispanic, does this kind of law-breaking behavior by fellow Hispanics not **** you off?

In case none of you has this figured out. The millions of babies born here illegally is their way of taking over "rquesition" of the Unitied States. After all who wants to fight a war against a bunch of babies? It's a win win for them and a lose lost for us. I won't get into the fact that they are pushing hospitals into bankruptcy. A war against Mexico is the only way to win this folks. We have already lost in the politcal arena's.

I'm an individual, not just a Hispanic. When you address me as a person, not just an ethnic group we can have a conversation. As an American doesn't it **** you off that ethnic profiling is considered OK? After all, aren't we all supposed to be part of this fabolus "melting pot"?
I believe in the melting pot, hence why generalizations, prejudice and ignorance is insulting to me.
