Texas: Hispanics taking population lead
DALLAS morning news. ^ | 8/9/2010 | DIANNE SOLÍS

Posted on 08/22/2010 9:29:04 AM PDT by dragnet2

Hispanics for the first time outnumber non-Hispanic whites in Dallas County by a slim margin, U.S. Census Bureau numbers show...

Texas was officially deemed a majority-minority state two years ago. But county by county, the state is becoming increasingly Hispanic, the Census Bureau reported in its 2006 update.

In Dallas County, minorities made up nearly 64 percent of residents in 2006, with Hispanics making up 37.7 percent of the population, compared with 36.1 for non-Hispanic whites.

The sweep of change – brought on largely by Texas births by Hispanic women – has tipped nearly every major urban area of the state into what the Census Bureau terms "majority-minority" status.

The latest census numbers and their illustration of Hispanic growth come as the nation continues a vitriolic debate over immigration – both legal and illegal and largely Hispanic.

Texas school districts have offered bilingual education for more than three decades.

But in recent years, with a surge in the number of students with limited English skills, districts have changed their strategies, offering stipends to teachers with bilingual ability....

Yes, and Spanish is becoming our official language. Those of us in the legal English speaking minority are working our butts off to support the parasitic majority.

“Majority-Minority”

An example of liberals trying to have it both ways.

The “local color” was welcome until it began to waltz in over the border without a by-your-leave. There are differences in attitudes between the old fashioned immigrants and the new illegale crowd.

Parkland is also home to the second busiest maternity ward in the country with almost 16,000 new babies arriving each year. (That’s almost 44 per day — every day)

A recent patient survey indicated that 70 percent of the women who gave birth at Parkland in the first three months of 2006 were illegal immigrants.’ Crikey, that’s 11,200 anchor babies born every year just in Dallas. According to the article, the hospital spent $70.7 million delivering 15,938 babies in 2004 but managed to end up with almost $8 million dollars in surplus funding. Medicaid kicked in $34.5 million, Dallas County taxpayers kicked in $31.3 million and the feds tossed in another $9.5 million.

The average patient in Parkland’s maternity wards is 25 years old, married and giving birth to her second child. She is also an illegal immigrant. By law, pregnant women cannot be denied medical care based on their immigration status or ability to pay. OK, fine. That doesn’t mean they should receive better care than everyday, middle-class American citizens. But at Parkland Hospital, they do.

Parkland Memorial Hospital has nine prenatal clinics. NINE. The Dallas Morning News article followed a Hispanic woman who was a patient at one of the clinics and pregnant with her third child — her previous two were also born at Parkland. Her first two deliveries were free and the Mexican native was grateful because it would have cost $200 to have them in Mexico. This time, the hospital wants her to pay $10 per visit and $100 for the delivery but she was unsure if she could come up with the money. Not that it matters, the hospital won’t turn her away. (I wonder why they even bother asking at this point.)

How long has this been going on? What are the long-term effects? Well, another subject of the article was born at Parkland in 1986 shortly after her mother entered the U.S. illegally — now she is having her own child there as well. (That’s right, she’s technically a U.S. citizen.) These women receive free prenatal care including medication, nutrition, birthing classes and child care classes. They also get freebies such as car seats, bottles, diapers and formula.

Most of these things are available to American citizens as well but only for low-income applicants and even then, the red tape involved is almost insurmountable.

Understand this. By doing nothing, we have HAD amnesty for 20 years.

In another 20, this will BE an hispanic 3rd world country.

There is NOTHING going to be done about it.

Now, plan accordingly. Learn Spanish. We lost.

Just think, in another 14 or 15 years the "anchor babies" will start having their own.

Be prepared for a quadrupling in birth rates.

So true. The “illegale crowd” as you put it has a huge sense of entitlement, no education, no respect for our laws or culture and no desire to assimilate or contribute. They are here only to serve themselves. Forgive me if I sound ultra redneck, but I spent yesterday fighting hordes of them as they pushed and shoved everybody else aside at the local mall during tax free weekend.

How many Texan citizens are being counted as Hispanic even though they are 3rd or fourth generation Americans of Mexican decent???

The statistics are a little misleading.

California is another anchor baby factory state. Same rules. Its illegal to check immigration status for anyone entering emergency rooms and all services are free to be picked up by the tax payers and medicaid.

So its not just childbirthing, but any medical care that provided free to them.

I wonder how many babies are born here to Muslims her, legal or illegal.

I know I see more and more of them at the malls and many are pushing baby carriages and 3 to 4 other kids.

I think they’re having a race for sure.

This is exceptionally dangerous.

Whites are the only group in America that actually cares about not inconveniencing other racial groups. Blacks and Mexicans couldn't give half a crap if whitey starves to death or not, as evidenced by the racist Obama regime's destruction of the middle class and purposeful avoiding of enforcing voting rights laws.

Mexicans will feed American whites into the maw of poverty and corruption they've created for themselves in Mexico that they are bringing to America.

How can there be such a thing as a “majority minority?” Unless of course non-Hispanic whites are some sort of “metaphysical” majority that has the responsibility to act as the gracious, understanding “host” long after it has ceased to have enough members to be tasked with that function.

Last year they mention in this article is the year 2009.......

Across Texas, 60,000 born to noncitizen mothers due U.S. birthright - 11,000 at Parkland

Still, the debate could resonate in Texas, where not only 1.5 million illegal immigrants are estimated to reside but at least 60,000 babies are added to their households annually.

Parkland Memorial Hospital delivers more of those babies than any other hospital in the state. Last year at Parkland, 11,071 babies were born to women who were noncitizens, about 74 percent of total deliveries. Most of these women are believed to be in the country illegally.

End snip

It is simply so easy to take a country without force, if you have the patience. Move in and outbreed the indigenous. Happening all over the world with the camel jockeys. See above, the Denmark thread as one example. See Indonesia. See Israel’s muslim population. Mexico is reclaiming what it lost long ago.

I realize this reply may draw ire from FR Texans, but demographics are what they are — undeniable and inevitable.

It looks like only a matter of time before Texas “tips Hispanic”, just as New Mexico is already, and as California soon will go.

It doesn’t matter if large portions of the state remain Anglo - by virtue of their concentration in a few areas, Hispanics will “have the numbers” to control the state, or, perhaps better stated, to grab the balance of political power away from the gringos.

To those of you who reply in anger, I say, just look at how New York State has been for as long as anyone can remember. New York is a _large_ state that has the bulk of its population concentrated in a few counties surrounding New York City. And NYC has so many leftists that it’s impossible for upstaters (who are considerably more conservative) to have a meaningful voice. Doesn’t matter if you life 300+ miles from the city, if you’re in the state of New York, you’re governed by the poltiical power of NYC.

Demographics are demographics.
The writing is on the wall.
Adios, Texas! (sigh)

P.S. Remember when the word “Atzlan” brought laughs and indignation that such an idea could be possible? Who’s laughing now?

Don't forget the Muslims. They are increasing their population here much quicker that the white population. Had an Albanian tell me one time that they know they can't beat us militarily. They will out populate us instead. With the numbers comes the power.

Texas school districts have offered bilingual education for more than three decades.

And it has done absolutely nothing in improving their English skills whatsoever.

Growing up in Brownsville, I was "totally emmersed", culturally speaking in speaking Spanish (in the 40s), it's the only thing that works. Our schools taught ONLY in English, so my MA classmates ended up speaking good English but it has sure degraded over the years with the following generations, and we know why of course.

"Bilingual Education" only enables poor English speaking skills.

Your loyalties may change a little. I can understand that.

Just because the Bush’s have Hispanic relatives doesn’t mean make up for
what is going on now with the biggest traitors of all allowing not only Hispanic in but illegals period, and for votes.

Then like the black communities the Hispanic communities will become the left’s bitches.

If the Hispanics were smart and they want there own businesses rather than working for someone else and paying high taxes, I suggest they vote Republican. The businessman’s party.

Don’t be a Marxist’s bitch. Don’t drain the economy and you won’t have a country like the one you want to get away from.

The bigger problem we have IMO, is the drug cartels. Nip it in the bud before it’s too late. There’s potential for an “iraq” type war right here on the border.

This is what Obama should be doing. But no, we have a lottery winner in the WH instead of a president for the people.

Sure, Mexico is reclaiming what it lost long ago which it just as much took from Native Americans as ‘white man’ did while they are moving into every other possible area of this country not previously associated with them. The United States was destroyed from within. Yet tell me where there’s ANY hope in the world because there isn’t any. There is a very hopeless future already here. Good luck to those of you who actually want to bring life into this world because I would dare to say there is no bright spot any place on this planet.
