But at the same time they say overall crime is down? or is it reported crime? Education is the key, Most Latin American countrys unlike other areas shed their poor and uneducated.
We are to think that generations of poor and uneducated will be a plus for connecticut? What is the cost per student in the citys compared to the suburbs? Who foots the bill to educate and house and feed these uneducated new people?

When they breed like roaches, get subsidized with welfare and section 8 at a disproportionate rate, and have a culture that embraces having 3 kids by the time you're 17, combined with the massive influx of illegal aliens - what do you expect?
The future looks bleak - whites will become a minority in this country soon. It's already happening. Go to Walmart, or the grocery store, you'll be hard pressed to find a fellow white among the crowd of non-whites. Try and find somebody who is actually speaking English - and not shouting and yelling some obnoxious mangled Spanish at a volume enough to send shivers down your spine.
Read the paper and police logs - for being a "minority" it seems as though they commit a "majority" of the crimes. Observe their actions and general lack of class.
Censor me all you want, it's facts.

A milestone will be when they decide to get jobs and be responsible tax paying citizens instead of a drain on the social services the state offers.

Oh, and learn English too!

"The increase in Hispanics could prove to be a boost for the state's workforce, said Edward Deak, an economics professor at Fairfield University."

This can be misleading. In order to compete for jobs in Hartford, or anywhere for that matter, one needs proper training and education. And, I'll be honest, just because someone can speak more than one language doesn't guarantee they can secure a job.

You know what would impress me? Show me stats where more Hispanics are graduating from college with greater success. Show me stats where crimes by Hispanics (and others, for that matter) are declining, as this influx of population increases. Show me stats where relyance on welfare is also declining.

Show me something more.

Buenas suerte, amigos!

Well after reading this story I am almost happy about hitting middle age knowing I will hopefully be dead or senile before our country is destroyed totally from within. My Grandparents came here for the opportunities but they worked, were legal and had no section 8 and all the other goodies.

How many of these Latinos have felony convictions? How many are teenage mothers? How many are living on Section 8 or in the projects? How many are lazy, shiftless, and have no desire to work?

Yet major corporations in the Hartford area do their best to hire workers from Puerto Rico, rather than hire new college grads from in state. Pratt & Whtney has a major partnership with the University of Puerto Rico to hire engineers and bring them to CT. It lets the company trumpet their "diversity" while not having to deal with getting visas or worrying about foreign nationals working on military programs.

By the way, the UPR graduates do not impress with their engineering skills. Many will only socialize with other Puerto Ricans and the majority can barely speak English, much less converse on technical subjects in English.

If those are the "educated" Latinos, then those who are uneducated must really be slummy. But they're Catholic, so heaven forbid we suggest they use birth control or limit their family size to something they can afford without welfare. Oh no, we must let them breed indiscriminately while the rest of us foot the bill!

I weep for the future.

At the risk of being jumped on, I would say that one of the reasons the birth rate is so much higher is that minority women tend to not have as much access to family planning resources and birth control. If people are going to continue complaining about rising birth rates and too many people on social service programs, then they ought to be the primary donors to groups like Planned Parenthood. People on all ends of the spectrum have a vested interest in family planning, for minorities and whites alike.

so wait, that means only 30 more years untill I can be unqualified for a job but still be hired due to my race. I suppose as a white guy it won't be all that bad, means we will get free college more, more fed. assitance since we will be the minority, I guess they will need to hire whites before them since we will be a minority...and my son can be not as high up on test scores and still get into college....YEAH FUTURE AFFIRMATIVE ACTION...and I can sue anytime makes fun of me or how I talk because I will be a minority and win, come on it isn't all that bad guys it just means they can start paying for us, a fun role reversal.
