Minority babies set to become majority in 2010

Minority babies set to become majority in 2010

WASHINGTON – Minorities make up nearly half the children born in the U.S., part of a historic trend in which minorities are expected to become the U.S. majority over the next 40 years.

In fact, demographers say this year could be the “tipping point” when the number of babies born to minorities outnumbers that of babies born to whites.

The numbers are growing because immigration to the U.S. has boosted the number of Hispanic women in their prime childbearing years.

Minorities made up 48 percent of U.S. children born in 2008, the latest census estimates available, compared to 37 percent in 1990.

“Census projections suggest America may become a minority-majority country by the middle of the century. For America’s children, the future is now,” said Kenneth Johnson, a sociology professor at the University of New Hampshire who researched many of the racial trends in a paper being released Wednesday.

I just have to ask, at what point in time do they drop the term minority from their description?

When do WE, the WHITE Americans, demand the rights that ILLEGALS have been given and how do we go about becoming at least an EQUAL race in America?

The numbers are growing because immigration to the U.S. has boosted the number of Hispanic women in their prime childbearing years.

I am going to offend some folks with this one, but here’s the truth, they breed like cock roaches, and we keep right on letting the ILLEGALS in and allowing them to stock America up with an endless supply of anchor babies.

And the number of white women of prime childbearing age is on the decline, dropping 19 percent from 1990.

For example:

  • In Gwinnett County, Ga., an Atlanta suburb, the population has shifted from 16 percent minority in 1990 to 58 percent minority in 2008. The number of blacks and Hispanics nearly doubled, while the number of white young people stayed roughly the same.
  • The population of Dakota County, Neb., increased from 15 percent minority in 1990 to 54 percent in 2008, due largely to an influx of Hispanics who came looking for work in meatpacking and other labor.
  • In Lake County, Ind., a suburb of Chicago, the minority population grew from 43 percent in 1990 to 53 percent in 2008 as the number of white children declined, the number of blacks stayed stable and the number of Hispanics increased.
  • The 2008 census estimates used local records of births and deaths, tax records of people moving within the U.S., and census statistics on immigrants. The figures for “white” refer to those whites who are not of Hispanic ethnicity.

So, let me get this straight, I want to fully understand this, they have become the majority but they are still called the minority?

How can you be a minority if you’re a majority? Are they simply using overall demographics to describe these people or are they really a minority? I don’t see how you can be both if regional statistics are taken into consideration.

Obama positioning for immigration reform

Obama positioning for immigration reform
WASHINGTON — With the health-care battle still unfinished, the Obama administration has been laying plans to take up an issue that could prove even more divisive — a major overhaul of the nation’s immigration system.

Senior White House aides privately have assured Latino activists that the president will back legislation next year to provide a path to citizenship for the estimated 12 million undocumented workers now living in the United States.

In addition to the citizenship provision, the emerging plan will stress efforts to secure U.S. borders against those trying to cross illegally. But that two-track approach was rejected repeatedly in the past by Republicans and other critics who insist a border crackdown must demonstrate its effectiveness before any action on citizenship is considered.

Whatever proposal Obama puts forward will likely be complicated by the calendar: Midterm elections are in November, and polls show the public is more worried about joblessness and the fragile economy than anything else.

Obama positioning for immigration reform

Is Barack Hussein Obama dead set on bringing this nation into CIVIL WAR?

I am convinced that the answer to that question is a resounding YES! Immigration reform was one of the reasons George W. Bush lost as much support as he did during that last 2 years of his presidency.

There are many, and I am one of them, that still believe that ILLEGAL immigration, our wide open borders after 9-11 and the lack of any definitive action to secure those border, and remove the ILLEGALS of this nation, will be the downfall OF America as we once knew it.

To legalize these ILLEGALS, to give them any kind of amnesty, to open the door to citizenship, will not do anything to alleviate the problems that America is facing. Any of the just mentioned actions will only further complicate our problems and plunge us further into the abyss.

The White House already has a packed agenda for 2010: economic recovery, global-warming legislation and tougher regulation of financial institutions.

If our lawmakers have ANY sense, I mean any, even a small shred, they will tell Obama to forget it. The ObamaCare debacle is going to cost quite a few Senators and Congressmen their jobs in 2010, any attempt to push through a bill that gives preferential treatment, or a fast track to citizenship to ILLEGALS will only add fuel to the fire that IS burning!

As a candidate, Obama vowed to take up immigration during his first year in office. That deadline will come and go. Further delay could anger Latino voters, who came out in force for the president and congressional Democrats in 2008.

Latino voters did support Obama and his BS, they bought it, hook, line and sinker. Dallas County was carried by Obama, as was Harris County (Houston) and several counties along the Mexican border. Texas, as a whole, rejected Obama and will do so again in 2012.

An immigration bill was introduced in the House earlier in the month, and Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., who chairs a subcommittee on immigration, is heading the effort to cobble together a bipartisan coalition in the Senate.

And just look at WHO is leading the charge! Chucky Schumer. That should tell ANY thinking person ALL they need to know about this coming immigration reform push. If Schumer is for it, it can’t be good for America! Thanks New York, we ALL appreciate your wonderful Sen. Chucky.
