Why is this?
We all know that’s not going to happen, and if someone even tries these days they’re called terrible racists. California told their local employers they’d get charges if they turned anyone over to ICE. The system is %#*!.

What you are seeing is the outcome of limiting women's health choices coupled with a culture that values large families.

Lots of people predicted that Texas would end up paying for more births when they stopped funding Planned Parenthood.

Et voila!
And no one’s healthcare choices are limited here. The largest Planned Parenthood building is right there on Hwy 59.

Per year? That's off by several orders of magnitude. Do a little basic arithmetic before you throw out ridiculous numbers like this

So you're claiming that employers in Texas don't use e-verify because they're afraid of being labeled a racists? Really, that's the inanity you are peddling here? It has absolutely nothing to do with cheap labor they can pay under the table, right? Uh, huh, riiiiight.

Good grief, I hope you really aren't this naive.

I support free lunch programs for school children. Could care less if a few kids come from households with more money than the other poorer children. Could also care less if the hungry kid is illegal. Cost too much? Take it out of trumps travel to golf trips.

Trump Derangement Syndrome I know requires you to interject Trump into every post but I was going to agree with you.

In many cases the breakfast or lunch provided is the only decent meal these kids of drunks and crackheads get.

81 percent of children in Houston Independent School District are so poor that the federal government has to intervene and give them free and reduced lunch.

Los Angeles homeless issue is nothing compared to the third-world baby factory that the city of Houston is.

Easier to house 50,000 or so homeless people in LA. Than Houston with by far the largest per-capita rate of poor children of any top 10 city in America.

Students at 169 schools to eat for free during 2014-2015 school year | News Blog

They pretty much have a third-world birth rate in Houston. Seems like it a perfect city for welfare though as Texas has excellent benefits for poor families as long as they have children. The rents and single-family homes are extremely cheap.

Lots of condos for $50,000 or less. Monthly hotels around $800/month. Lots of single-family homes for less than $100,000. This means that families who can't afford anywhere else are moving to Houston.

Houston has 30 percent higher birth rate than Mormons in Utah. Over Double the rate of New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine

Utah has about 16 births per 100,000

Very rich New Hampshire, Vermont have less than 10 births per 100,000. Maine has less than 10 births per 100,000 people based on population

LOL, OP! Baby factory? Thanks for the chuckle.

I read the first sentence of your post, “21.4 births per 100,000 in Houston”, and immediately thought - that can’t be right . That’s a crazy low fertility rate. OP, the entire state of Texas has 14 births per 1,000.

Then later in the same post, you state “Utah has about 16 births per 100,000”. OP, no it doesn’t. Utah has about 16 births per 1,000.

The birth rates per 1,000 women aged 15-44, by state, are listed on a table on page 42 of the publication linked to in the last line of your post.

I am amazed how outraged you were by the incredibly low incorrect birth rates you quoted.

I just love the fact they are still butt hurt about Nov.


Hey, if there is money to feed everyone for free, great. I just hope everyone realizes that simply going to be less for health care if that's what they want. Nothing is really free, someone pays for it.

How dare those people seek food and shelter for themselves and their families? Shame on them for having such audacity.
