The immigrant population in America– legal and illegal – has exploded. A new report from the census bureau finds immigration and the birth rate among Hispanics is rapidly increasing their population here. The white birth rate is declining because of abortion and their choosing to have fewer children. Hispanics are now the largest minority, replacing blacks. They encompass 14.5 percent of the population, compared to 12.8 percent of blacks. Whites are now a minority in four states – Hawaii, New Mexico, California and Texas and the District of Columbia, other states are sure to follow.
Growing numbers of the immigrants are bringing disease, lack of education and poor work skills. They are burdening our already-burdened health care system. The democratic party is recruiting many of them.
Read Pat Buchanan’s new book “State of Emergency: the Third World Invasion and Conquest of America.” It’s loaded with facts, not just opinion. We are rapidly undoing what our founders and those who fought and died for America gave us and it is being done without the consent of the majority.
