Hispanics Make up Nearly Half of All Texas Births in 2010, U.S. Says

Juan Castillo, Statesman, November 17, 2011

Hispanic births accounted for nearly half of the state’s 386,096 births in 2010, according to a federal report Thursday showing the birth rate in Texas exceeding all states but Alaska and Utah. {snip}

The figures offer more evidence of the impact of Hispanic growth in Texas, which led the nation in population growth over the past decade, increasing 20.6 percent–more than twice as fast as that of the nation as a whole. Texas grew by 4.3 million since 2000 to hit the 25.1 million mark in 2010. Hispanics accounted for two-thirds of that growth.

Migration from other states and other countries, as well as a high fertility rate among Hispanics, are driving Hispanic growth in Texas, said Lloyd Potter, state demographer and director of the Texas State Data Center.

“And the Hispanic population in Texas is very young,” Potter said. “Just by the age factor, we have relatively few deaths, and consequently among Hispanics, there are significantly larger number of births than deaths.”

In 2010, Texas saw 189,120 Hispanic births, accounting for 49 percent of the state total, according to the report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released Thursday. Hispanics make up 37.6 percent of Texas’ population, according to the census.

Non-Hispanic whites had the next highest share of births in Texas, 134,906, or 35 percent. Non-Hispanic blacks had 44,559 births, or 11.5 percent of the state total, and Asians/Pacific Islanders had 16,818 , or 4.3 percent.

    And so with it will go the first-world civilization that the Anglos created when TX became part of the Union. Sad.

    Texas is in the process of transition that California underwent a few decades ago. It will become another Democratic stronghold, bringing to an end any prospectives for the Republican Party to win any election in the future.

    Who knows? By 2036 Texas may go back to Mexico. America should have paid more attention to its southern border and less to Europe and Asia. Even today, brain-dead America keeps 28,000 troops on the intra-Korean border and none on its own southwest. America is also sticking its nose in territorial disputes between China and other Asian countries in the South China sea, while ignoring Mexican irredentist claims on its own southwest. The isolationists were right after all.

    I thought of a new word:


    One who believe diversity is strength and advocates immigration of non-Whites would be a Xenophile.

    Exactly why I’m leaving. Lived in a very homogeneous area of Washington state before spending the last 3 years in Texas. I have been absolutely disgusted by the illegal mexican “culture” that I’ve witnessed every. single. day. Headed back to that homogeneous community tomorrow, never to return. It’s so sad, really, because I’m a 7th generation Texan. It’s just not worth it anymore.

    As expected…”user comments are not being accepted on this article” at the Statesmen. What are they afraid of? That perhaps Texans and the rest of America might not be as enthusiastic about this invasion as they are!

    49% of Texas births in 2010 are to hispanics, 11.5% to blacks and 4.3% to Asians.

    That means close to two thirds of Texas births last year were to “minorities”.

    The future is now in Texico.

    I hope during the next debate, someone asks Perry how many of those jobs he brags about went to Americans and how many to illegal aliens? I am a Texan (by marriage) and a Republican (by choice), but not one person in those debates has convinced me that they would have the courage of Eisenhower and deport the illegal aliens from this country. It is horrifying to hear that we have become a “can’t do” country. We can’t deport 12 million illegals, we can’t build a fence, we can’t stop paying for their education, medications and incarceration, we can’t arrest those who dance in the streets proclaiming their illegality, and we can’t even call them illegal aliens for fear of offending them! My question is: What CAN we do?

    Political pendulums generally swing back and forth over time. Having been a long time Texas resident, it has stayed an inordinate amount of time in the Republican Party sphere. The massive increase in the “Hispanic” population here insures that soon the Repub dominance in the state will come to an end. And when the Democrats take control of this state, you can kiss not only Texas, but the rest of the country goodbye. With control of the state going to Dems, they will re-write the Congressional District lines to gain as many House seats as possible. In addition to this blatant power grab, you can more than likely kiss Texas’ Presidential electoral votes goodbye. Combine California, New York, Florida, and Texas to the (D) column and it really doesn’t matter how the rest of the nation votes.

    And for you other Texas residents reading this, just know that the Dems have been out of power here for a long time. When they get it back, they will NOT give it up again, even if it means massive voter fraud, packing state offices with political cronies, sidestepping legal procedures by judge-shopping issues through the courts, and giving away so many welfare freebies to the “Hispanic” masses, who will in turn become loyal drone voters. These leftist-statists are like termites, working 24/7 to destroy the somewhat stable situation we currently enjoy here over most of the rest of the nation. Unfortunately, they will eventually succeed.

    I fear for my state. I see the beginning of the end and like Justine who is already leaving, I am planning my eventual escape to the Northwest initially and possibly overseas after that.

    The continued importation of low-intelligence, low-skill, often criminally inclined 3rd-world people will displace the descendants of those who tamed and settled this land. The end result of this social experiment by the elitist douchebags who foist this upon a dwindling productive middle class will not be pretty. In 10-20 years, look for much of the Southwest region of the US to resemble Mexico in not only physical looks (run-down neighborhoods, etc.) but in political/economic/social structure as well. You will have a very small percentage of uber-rich elitists, a small slice (

    Perhaps I’m naive, but wouldn’t all these issues be remedied if whites simply started having children at a younger age? After all, whites are still the majority today, and if somehow a change in the culture returned them to family builders, rather than career builders, perhaps we could save our race. I blame white men much more than white woman. Every time I see a pregnant white woman, I notice she is with a black guy, and usually has several mulatto children already. When I see a white couple, they rarely have any kids, and if they do,it us more often just 1. The issue is clearly with White men. We should all stop complaining, and win this war one orgasm at a time.

    It’s too late to worry about places like Texas or California. sooner or later they will be revert back to Mexico, or they become an independent Hispanic republic of some kind.

    Mexican Indians are becoming a majority in Texas and people worry about how that will affect the Republican Party. Who cares about the Republican Party? It’s the future of the White race and Western civilization that’s at stake here. What has the Republican Party done for Whites? As far as I can see it is part of the problem, if it perishes it was because of its own greed and stupidity.

    This demographic transition occured not only without the approval of the traditional American people, but against their will. That makes it an invasion, and our government treasonous. We have every right to expel the invaders by force and bring the government traitors to justice. Of course that would take some spine, and most white men have lost theirs.

    As I’ve written before, The Elected Know and this speaks to Perry’s Hispanic Love.

    They know and why it is so necessary for us to Band like we’ve never Banded Before…

    Can somebody explain why blacks are only 13% of the population?

    Here in Europe they all have like 5 to 10 kids, so bye this number they should have outnumbered whites long ago. How does it come they are still only 13%

    There has been virtually no black immigration since slave days except for some people from the Caribbean recently while there has been a lot of European, Latin American, and Asian immigration.

    I cannot speak for Europe Mr. German, but here in the States, they tend to kill each other on a regular basis, which keeps their numbers in check. Also, a substantial majority of black men are in prison, which has acts as a positive deterrent on their ability to reproduce.

    whites don’t have kids at an early age because:

    to afford the HIGH TAXES and the HIGH COST of houses in the WHITE neighborhoods so our daughters don’t get gang rapes…

    we have to go to good colleges, work our butts off, oh but college isn’t enough so on to graduate school which is the new college degree… and then graduate with huge student loans to pay and climb the corporate ladder

    at the same time, all the pretty girls have been bonking low brain football players who now work at 7-11s and black men and by the time you get out of the horror you are 35 there are few to no women who weren’t complete whores and screwed 100 guys by the time they were 20 and have god knows what disease, etcetcetc

    and you really wanna get married just so in 4 yrs she can take half and half your salary?

    That was the goal of the Democrats. To flood the country with illegal welfare types. They and liberal judges are making sure the counntry becomes another third world hellhole to make sure states like California, Illinois, New York, Texas, Florida, etc. become permanently Democratic. In the near future, Republicans, as we know of, will never win a nationwide election. White people are sitting quietly by. They only have themselves to blame. I will go so far as to say any White man or woman who votes Democratic is killing their own race off.

    Well said.

    I am going to an university with (don’t take this wrong) there are huge crowds of good looking blond blue eyed men. But since they have to study all day, some of them are 30 years old and had no contact to women for 10 years.

    No. 19:

    There is truth in what you say, but that is just one piece of the whole puzzle.

    Whites need to start thinking differently, and the very first thing I would suggest is to get rid of the TV. If you must watch movies, only watch movies that have an uplifting or positive message, and watch them on your P.C.

    I have read a few pieces on how Communist subversion works as more and more information has been made available over the past 20 years. It all has to do with the mind: scientific psychological manipulation through psycho-linguistics and other techniques and methods.

    The next thing I would suggest is to forget about college degrees, and learn everything you can about internet technology, business, and becoming an entrepreneur. If you can find a good woman, she can become your business partner; that way neither one of you will be spending more time at some corporation making someone else rich, while bonding with a work buddy and being tempted to stray from the marriage.

    The third thing would be to not live in a large city, where everything costs more, there is more racial diversity, more crime, more regulations, etc. You want to be able to have as much control over your environment as possible.

    Also, I read an article a few years ago saying that women who live in urban areas are much more materialistic, concerned with appearances and are more likely to be single and unhappy. Women who lived in rural areas were the opposite of all of that.
