Last week Mark Steyn had an interesting mention about California, and its demographics. With encouragement from our government since 1970, the latino population from South America now equals the white population in the state. I suppose that wouldn’t be a problem for the states finances, with the exception that the hispanic population from south of the border has been less interested in integration, higher education and learning new skills. That in turn has created a higher poverty rate for the state of California.
Possibly that trend will change in the future as of late several latin American countries have been experiencing growth, looking to improve their economies and seeing a growing middle class. Then again, with out promotion of entrepreneurial ideas it might not.
“GOP Date With Demographic Destiny By Government Design”
snippets from his article:
"…Everyone talks about this demographic transformation as if it’s a natural phenomenon, like Hurricane Sandy. Indeed, I notice that many of those exulting in the inevitable eclipse of “white America” are the same people who assure me that demographic arguments about the Islamization of Europe are completely preposterous.
But in neither the United States nor Europe is it a natural phenomenon. Rather, it’s the fruit of conscious government policy.
According to the Census, in 1970 the “Non-Hispanic White” population of California was 78%. By the 2010 census, it was 40%. Over the same period, the 10% Hispanic population quadrupled and caught up with whites.
That doesn’t sound terribly “natural” does it? If one were informed that, say, the population of Nigeria had gone from 80% black in 1970 to 40% black today, one would suspect something rather odd and unnatural had been going on.
Twenty years ago, Rwanda was about 14% Tutsi. Now it’s just under 10%. So it takes a bunch of Hutu butchers getting out their machetes and engaging in seven-figure genocide to lower the Tutsi population by a third.
But, when the white population of California falls by half, that’s “natural,” just the way it is, one of those things, could happen to anyone…"
…Don’t take it from a right-wing bigot like me, take it from The New York Times. In 2009, Jason DeParle filed a story about suburban Maryland, in which he helpfully explained the municipality of Langley Park to Times readers:
“Now nearly two-thirds Latino and foreign-born, it has the aesthetics of suburban sprawl and the aura of Central America. Laundromats double as money-transfer stores. Jobless men drink and sleep in the sun. There is no city government, few community leaders and little community.”
Golly. You’d almost get the impression that Mr. DeParle thinks that laundromats doubling as money-transfer stores, jobless men drinking and sleeping in the sun, and dysfunctional government are somehow characteristic of Central America. That sounds awfully judgmental for a Times man, no?
Republicans think they’re importing hardworking immigrants who want a shot at the American Dream; the Democrats think they’re importing clients for Big Government. The left is right: just under 60% of immigrants receive some form of welfare.
I see the recent Republican proposals for some form of amnesty contain all sorts of supposed safeguards against gaming the system, including a $525 dollar application fee for each stage of the legalization process…
