Your tired old "racist" claims should go elsewhere. Try on some facts:

A third of the nation's 296.4 million people are considered minorities. Hispanics are the largest minority group at 42.7 million, up 3.3% from mid-2004 to mid-2005. The Census counts all residents and makes no distinction between those here legally and illegally. The Pew Center estimates that up to 12 million U.S. residents are undocumented, most of them Hispanic.

"Obviously, a very large share of U.S. population growth and of Hispanic growth is driven by illegal immigration," says Steven Camarota, research director at the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington think tank that favors stricter immigration controls.

Post 1970 immigrants and their descendants have added more than 55 million people to our country; this is the equivalent of absorbing all of Central America in thirty years. Yet Central America's, Mexico's, and China's populations have grown even larger. Clearly, we are not able to address the world's problems by attempting to absorb their excess population.

Do you know the Center for Immigration Studies was founded by racist mastermind John Tanton?

So you’re denying the fact that the primary reason the Hispanic population in the U.S. has skyrocketed in the past 10 years is due to illegal immigration? Would you care to substantiate your claim? Add to that the fact that 75% of illegals’ offspring are born here.

If, for example, 40 million illegal Asians descended upon this country, Asians would now account for the largest “minority” group. If Hispanic illegals are counted in the census, they should have a separate category to distinguish them from citizens, along with their U.S.-born meal tickets. It’s all political BS.

"racist"...did i really say that?

i said there is antihispanic sentiment on this board. that is undeniable.

if it were really about illegals and criminals there would be no reason to inject any other characteristic.

those BLACK rapist. those BLACK killers. to me they are just rapists and killers.

try looking at the facts, beyond race or ethnicity.

as for your "stats" what does that have to do with anything about this thread?

i really dont think you want to dance darling

You mean except Los Angeles. Trust me when I tell you that this problem was out of control here in Cali 25 years ago. At that time you didn't have a single illegal living in Chicago. There were already millions here in Cali at that time.

I agree that Amnesty is the biggest travesty in American history. Hmm I don't recall having a vote on that one.

I think everyone saw their true goal on that day. It was the last straw for millions of Americans. The politicians have long since been sold out for the illegal hispanic vote.

We can't rely on them to help us with this problem as they have proved to pander out to anyone with a vote regardless of where they come from.
Apparently the voice of the American people no longer holds any value to them.
Nothing short of war will stop this invasion period.

Show you stats of what? They don't distinguish between legal and illegal Hispanics in the census, so what are you asking? Subtract the estimated number of illegals and their offspring from the total U.S. Hispanic population, and they will no longer be the 'majority' minority.

Since I'm not looking at this from a racist point of view, I had no idea, nor do I care.
