Mexican Latinos make up more than two thirds of all Latinos in the United States, according to a new Pew Hispanic report.
Of the 51.9 million Latinos living in the United States in 2011, more than 33.5 million trace their family back to Mexico.
The report also found Mexican-Americans to be of the lowest average age (25), while Cuban Americans were the oldest, at 40.
Argentineans had the highest average household income in 2011, at $55,000 and Hondurans the lowest at $31,000 also giving Hondurans the highest poverty rate among U.S. Hispanics, at 33 percent. Mexicans averaged $38,000, with a poverty rate of 28 percent.
The poverty rate for Hispanics is higher than it is for the general U.S. population. According to the 2011 census, the nations median income was $50,054 and poverty rate was 15 percent.
Together, United States Latinos trace their heritage to more than 20 Spanish-speaking nations worldwide, but 14 countries represented the majority of U.S. Latinos.
As of the 2013 census, the Hispanic population is the nations largest and fastest growing immigrant group. It stood at 53 million in 2012, making up 17 percent of the U.S. population.

“As of the 2013 census, the Hispanic population is the nations largest and fastest growing immigrant group.”
Make up your mind, you lying Pew commies. Here’s what you said earlier in the week:
“The birth rate for Mexican immigrant women fell even more, by 23%.”
since all of South America and central America were colonized by either the Spanish, the Portuguese, the English, or the French, I’d have to say that almost ALL Latinos have European stock in them....
What the hell is it with the commie libs? If isn’t about money, it’s about race. That seems to be about all those bass turds can think about.
I don’t care where they are from—if they are here illegally, send them back. I think the time is coming when CITIZENS of this Republic are going to take lone-wolf, direct action against these people who are getting a free ride from the professional politicians, and make it extremely uncomfortable for them to continue sucking the lifeblood out of our country.
Of course they do. They screwed up their country so bad they had to leave, and now they’re here working on ours.
King Filipe I/iI was king of England and king of Spain ~ kind of like that.
