AP: Don’t Worry About Immigration, SCOTUS

From a joyous Associated Press:

Census: Minorities now surpass whites in US births

By HOPE YEN [sic]
May 17, 2012

WASHINGTON (AP) — For the first time, racial and ethnic minorities make up more than half the children born in the U.S., capping decades of heady immigration growth that is now slowing.

New 2011 census estimates highlight sweeping changes in the nation’s racial makeup and the prolonged impact of a weak economy, which is now resulting in fewer Hispanics entering the U.S.

"This is an important landmark," said Roderick Harrison, a former chief of racial statistics at the Census Bureau who is now a sociologist at Howard University. "This generation is growing up much more accustomed to diversity than its elders."

For the record, Howard University is a school that studiously avoids diversity. Their student body is more than 80% black and less than 4% white. They also require that every student take African American Studies.

The report comes as the Supreme Court prepares to rule on the legality of Arizona’s strict immigration law, with many states weighing similar get-tough measures.

"We remain in a dangerous period where those appealing to anti-immigration elements are fueling a divisiveness and hostility that might take decades to overcome," Harrison said

Remember, Mr. Harrison used to be the chief of racial statistics at the Census Bureau.

As a whole, the nation’s minority population continues to rise, following a higher-than-expected Hispanic count in the 2010 census. Minorities increased 1.9 percent to 114.1 million, or 36.6 percent of the total U.S. population, lifted by prior waves of immigration that brought in young families and boosted the number of Hispanic women in their prime childbearing years

So why does everyone keep talking about how illegal immigration has slowed? Isn’t 2010 the latest official census?

In fact, the AP never gives any documentation for their claims. They simply cite "new 2011 estimates."

However, all of these claims about a supposed ‘slow down’ in illegal immigration are based on that one report from the ‘open borders’ lobbyists at the Pew Hispanic Center, which we posted last month. And Pew’s claims were based on the Bureau Of Labor statistics monthly surveys on unemployment and their yearly survey on "foreign born populations."

From the Pew study: "These Pew Hispanic Center estimates use data mainly from the Current Population Survey (CPS), a monthly survey of about 55,000 households conducted jointly by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Census Bureau… [And] each March, the CPS sample size and questionnaire are expanded to produce additional data on the foreign-born population and other topics."

And we know how accurate polls are. And we know how accurate those BLS numbers on unemployment are, too. And how much does a yearly survey tell you, anyway?

The annual growth rates for Hispanics and Asians fell sharply last year to just over 2 percent, roughly half the rates in 2000 and the lowest in more than a decade. The black growth rate stayed flat at 1 percent…

And we know this how? There has not been a new census.

Pointing to a longer-term decline in immigration, demographers believe the Hispanic population boom may have peaked

Isn’t this steady drumbeat about how illegal immigration has stopped handy? Especially given that the Supreme Court is about to rule on the Arizona immigration law.

William H. Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution who analyzed the census data, noted that government debates over immigration enforcement may now be less pressing, given slowing growth. "The current congressional and Supreme Court interest in reducing immigration — and the concerns especially about low-skilled and undocumented Hispanic immigration — represent issues that could well be behind us," he said.

What a coincidence!

Minorities made up roughly 2.02 million, or 50.4 percent of U.S. births in the 12-month period ending July 2011. That compares with 37 percent in 1990

But there is nothing to worry about. Immigration has slowed.

The 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.

Naturally. Hispanics are only "white" when they need to be charged with a hate crime for shooting a black person.

    let me know when whites can file discrimination for being a minority.

    By the way, U.S. Soldiers are complaining of sexual advances on them since the “don’t ask don’t tell” was appealed. I am guessing the gay male soldiers are catching up with the female soldiers as to making unwanted advances.

    Our troops need to recognize this as sexual harassment, more grave than misconduct and it warrants disciplinary action to include dishonorable discharge depending on the severity of the problem.

      The gay problem is the national socialsts’ way of destroying the military from within by making it a social experiment. In the past, these things have never worked out very well but eventually led to equilibrium. In ancient Rome, the gay soldiers were garrisoned separately from the straight ones. They had a horrible time with homosexuality once the box had been opened.

      So glad I got out before Clinton began the great destruction and now that it’s all open and wonderful, watch enlistment suffer…of course all by design. But it will be a democrat who will demand the draft to return. Why? To hide the glaring failure of allowing this puftah peter-puffing military to come to fruition (pun intended).

      They are not normal people and in a well-structured society, they are kept away from the normal world. Their view of morality is skewed and bizarre. And, imagine the medical services having to treat homosexual bowel syndrome and the gay parties in the military barracks. How are they going to apply the UCMJ to the lewd and lascivious acts that will propagate throughout? How about the spread of AIDS within the military? I can’t see paying tax dollars on treating a “soldier” who contracts AIDS while on active duty unless he unwittingly gets it from a bi-sexual female. Just the same, keeping one’s wick dry is always important but the buff, muscle-bound gay soldier may just not be able to contain his erotic “needs” when he attacks and overpowers a less-strong soldier in the same unit, or decides that he doesn’t like the guy and “shows him” some “homo-discipline” by bending him over to teach him a lesson in “tolerance”.

      It’s all come off the rails and I wish there was another place to go live that didn’t have all this sickness and ridiculous social-engineering going on.

      Queers can go do whatever they like…but not while on my tax dollars. It’s aberrant behavior, it’s not normal and no amount of TV shows, newspaper articles, preachy human-resources “education” will make me think otherwise.

      Doesn’t mean I want them dead. Doesn’t mean I would actively be rude to them but it also doesn’t mean that I accept them as “normal”.

      Ain’t gonna happen

    If the numbers are right, average age of whites at 42 and beyond the child bearing years, and the Hispanic crowd at 27 right in the middle of starting families, then we’re all ghosts. In 20 years what is a rising tide will roll into a tsunami.

    I don’t really have an innate problem with hispanics, and have several friends who are of that heritage, the problem is most of this growth is from recent immigrants who look as Mexico as their home and think of the USA as the place to earn a buck and get free stuff. Things have been BS with political correctness since the late 80’s, I’m not looking forward to a future where I’m broke and living in the old folks home and still getting grief about how I’m the racist who deserves some licks for taking everyone’s jobs and money when my whole life I’ve had less than them.

    re: the gay soldiers…..yeah, it’s going to get ugly. It’s already been bad in academia for years where they openly hire and promote their gay copatriots over straights, harass and give grief to anyone they think isn’t in their corner, yet many colleges have a designated “safe room” they can run to when someone hurts their feelings.

    I can see a lot of bad situations where a young aggressive male who’s attracted to his bunkmates will harass or assault a straight soldier, and it’ll just get swept under the rug as gays are always the victims and the JAG won’t risk his career prosecuting it.

    Rusty, excellent point. It’s inevitable AIDs will become a health issue in the military.

    Now they have a study AIDs is speading in Middle-Eastern countries because homosexuality is not true sex they tell themselves, like Bill Clinton said he had no sexual relation with that girl

    And so right next door in Africa which AIDS get’s even worse is according to studies because the African’s refuse to stop this practice, because they won’t give up their “traditional ways and beliefs
    forced marriages to young girls and raping them. Eating babies to cure AIDs. Plus they are hungry.
    You can’t say it’s AID’s making African’s do these things to cure AIDs. And it was the Islam religion
    such as Obama’s ancestors on his father’s side, that he wrote of practicing rape was a muslim practice.

  4. Petronius says:

    “those appealing to anti-immigration elements are fueling a divisiveness and hostility that might take decades to overcome.”

    How’s that again?

    We are something that needs to be “overcome”?

    Did you notice the veiled threat? That all of those “anti-immigration elements” (old white folk) will have to shed their divisive and hostile attitudes?

    Of course, nature, millions of years of primate evolution, and the survival instinct are not easily overcome, and so it may take decades to drive those instincts out of us, but, by gum, they’re going to do it, and so we might as well learn to step aside and accept our place at the bottom of the new tribal hierarchy.

    So exactly how will this instinctive opposition from American-Americans –– their will to life –– be overcome? By more indoctrination in the Liberal Death Wish? By more repression and anti-white racism? By sterner measures? By overwhelming our diminishing numbers with ever increasing numbers of new immigrants, as a form of ethnic cleansing, until the final triumph of the Liberal Death Wish is irreversible?

    • Anonymoose says:

      There is a slim chance things may change. Most liberalism is White guilt, and Hispanics don’t have this rampant “everything that’s gone wrong is our fault” mentality. Mexico has a long history of mistreatment of their Native American population starting with the Spanish conquests, but you never hear about it. They also don’t care about appeasing blacks or gays. If enough of them begin to see America as “their” country rather than more stuff for Mexico, and that rampant immigration is taking away what they’ve earned here, then America could survive again as a country. However, it would be very different from the one we know and I don’t what place there would be for us.
