This is not true. The backbone of some of those industries are largely immigrants from all over and whites.

For example iron and steel are considered the backbone of the industrial industry and that wasn’t the bread and butter for Hispanics. Law enforcment and military are largely white as well. Percentage wise, there’s actually more blacks in the military than Hispanics. 17% vs 12%

Now the service, food, construction, and agricultural industry I would say those are more relatable to the Hispanic community.

6 facts about the U.S. military's changing demographics

I beg to differ most police officers are Hispanic

No the illegals were not given permission to plant themselves here. And no I wasn't asked or give permission to the government to allow legal immigrants in either. It's imposition.

You dont really like facts, first you claim Hispanics were the backbone of the military and industrial industry which was wrong and now you claim they’re the backbone of law enforcement which is also wrong

Quote:
In hundreds of police departments across the country, the percentage of whites on the force is more than 30 percentage points higher than in the communities they serve, according to an analysis of a government survey of police departments. Minorities make up a quarter of police forces, according to the survey, the most recent comprehensive data available.
https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...partments.html

I’m from San Antonio, Texas. Joining the military or becoming a cop is not something Hispanics do in large numbers compared to other demographics. I even posted the link that showed there were more blacks in the military than Hispanics.

Hispanics largely have service, food, construction, and agricultural industries. Don’t start making up industries from thin air that you think Hispanics dominate as if other minority groups are just twiddling their thumbs.

Look at the link I provided I don’t make this stuff up
See post 216

Also military is 43% Hispanic for men and 56% for women
https://www.cfr.org/article/demographics-us-military
I appreciate your self confidence something I have always lacked
But you are much mistaken in these issues

I canít believe people donít need your permission to move in your vicinity! Thatís outrageous.
