There are millions of Hispanics that have come to the US legally over the years and have settled in all parts of the nation. To them, I say welcome, because they use the legal process to come to America and have every right to be part of this country like all legal immigrants have the right to.
However, the Obama administration refuses to secure the US–Mexico border, allowing millions of illegal Hispanics to cross into the US on a regular basis. Some illegals have been here in the US for three generations, living off the welfare of US taxpayers and still speaking little or no English.
The influx of Hispanics, legal and illegal have helped increased their numbers tremendously over the years, which has affected businesses, schools and governments. In many communities within 100 miles of the Mexican border, non-Hispanics are the minority.
In the state of California, the increase in Hispanics has been so great that by the end of this year, it has been projected that they will become the majority ethnic group in the entire state. If the current trends are held, Hispanics will equal the number of non-Hispanic whites by the end of July with both accounting for 39% of the total population. By the end of August, Hispanics will take the lead and probably not look back.
Part of the reason can be seen by the liberals running California that have basically adopted Obama’s policy of welcoming in the illegals with open arms and giving them all kinds of benefits paid for by a state that is bankrupt.
However, there are a couple of other reasons why there will be more Hispanics than non-Hispanic whites by the end of the year. One is that the birth rates to non-Hispanics in California have been declining. This could be due to the increase in homosexual couples and a decrease in the number of marriages in the state. Many couples are opting to just live together and not have children, partially because they both have to work in order to survive with the high cost of living in many parts of the state.
Another reason is that in the past two years, a number of non-Hispanics have been moving out of California. Most of the reasons for leaving range from the high tax rates, the high cost of living to the liberalness of the government and schools.
The overall changes in ethnicity have had a direct impact on the number of kids living in poverty in the state. It is estimated that 40% of students in California live at or below the poverty level. Twenty percent of all students just happen to be non-native English speaking indicating that the largest groups within the Hispanic population are children and young adults.
So, in just seven months from now, California could change its name to Northern Mexico or Northern Latin America.
