In forthcoming Census Bureau release, racial and ethnic minorities are expected to make up 90 percent of total US growth since 2000
WASHINGTON In a surprising show of growth, Hispanics accounted for more than half of the U.S. population increase over the last decade, exceeding estimates in most states. Pulled by migration to the Sun Belt, America's population center edged westward on a historic path to leave the Midwest.

If you don’t speak Spanish, and look like everyone else, just what exactly makes you Hispanic? That is the question that will soon be asked.
When did we vote to become Mexico?
How is a Latino or Hispanic defined? Being born in a place once colonized by Spain? That would make anyone born in Florida, New Mexico, Arizona and other states Hispanic. The definition of Hispanic is foolish and makes no sense.
Poor Hope probably doesn’t realize that part of the growth of hispanics stems from the fact that most weren’t counted as anything other than citizens before 1970.
25% are probably non-communist.
DIYers already know that el Lowe’s and Home Depotazatlan are FULLY on board with the bilingual thing......
Finding crap in their their stores is a nightmare with their one world, politically correct signage.
What's so surprising? We let a massive invasion of our country take place and then we are suppose to be surprised by the result?
The AP article claimed that there were around 50 Million hispanics now in this country, moving to the heartland and settling in........
Most all of them Obama voters.............
This country is history!
“The definition of Hispanic is foolish and makes no sense.”
For the Democrats, it makes perfect sense. Define a group, make them victims, redistribute wealth to those victims in exchange for votes at the ballot box.
Tried successfully with blacks. Tried successfully with single women. Lather, rinse, repeat.
Illegals are flooding the country and driving the US into ruin. The cost of maintaining this illegal population is mind boggling and the cost does not include maintaining a secure border.
New milestone: 1 in 6 Hispanics in US is here legally
Did they delineate the legal from the illegal ??
“In a surprising show of growth...?” What the hell is SURPRISING about it. These people are here illegally, yet receive free care, free housing, free money....and they no longer live in a country which demands they actually WORK for a living and pay for what they want! How is it a surprise, MSNBC?????
You assume everyone Hispanic comes from Mexico.
If that was the case, I was born in Missouri. The was state was part of New Spain for a while in the 1700’s. I guess I an Hispanic. It’s all in your mind.
When we put Jorge Busho into office. The rest of the scum (Clinton, et al) we knew were traitors. Bush stabbed us in the back.
Oh. I;m in L.A. The one thing I hate the most are the same WHITE libtards were the one who initiated this due to LIBERAL WHITE GUILT...
If anyone truly is observant, L.A. is already balkanized. Whites will not talk to non-whites, mexicans wont talk to gringos unless they order something etc.
We didn’t congress opened the flood gates.
“Many” of them are illegal? Two million a year stream across the border, yet the media still uses the “11 million in the US” figure from 1996.
I would say that 90% of them are here illegally, and the total number is closer to 30,000,000. They are a plague.
