I don't see the headline saying Vallejo's Illegal Hispanic Population Exceeding 26000.

But since this is purely a racist thread, let me add that I would like to see more Hispanics....they tend to be friendler, not afraid to look for work and even their boom boxes play real music. Nope....got to have more of them.

It would be nice to see a lot less surly pant draggers, panhandlers and loud drama queens and their hiphop violent boom box emissions.

But, of course, I am generalizing.

I am Caucasian, so I really ought not to be commenting. lol.

U.S. Latino Population Projected To Soar

.Washington Post Staff Writer
Tuesday, February 12, 2008

The number of Hispanics in the United States will triple by 2050 and represent nearly 30 percent of the population if current trends continue, according to a report released yesterday.

The study by the nonpartisan, Washington-based Pew Research Center also found that nearly one in five Americans will be foreign-born in 2050, compared with about one in eight today. Asian Americans, representing 5 percent of the population today, are expected to boost their share to 9 percent.

Blacks are projected to maintain their current 13 percent share. Non-Hispanic whites will still be the nation's largest group, the report says, but would drop from 67 percent of U.S. residents to 47 percent.

Overall, by 2050 the U.S. population is projected to increase by 47 percent, from 296 million in 2005 to 438 million. Newly arriving immigrants would account for 47 percent of the rise, and their U.S.-born children and grandchildren would represent another 35 percent.
