CDC: Hispanics to Reach 23% of U.S. Population by 2035, Faster than Expected

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner, May 5, 2015

America’s Hispanic population is projected to soar in the coming two decades to 85,543,000, faster than some have expected, according to a new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report on Latinos.

CDC on Tuesday said the Hispanic population will total 22.8 percent of the U.S. population by 2035.

Others like the Brookings Institution predicted the Hispanic population would be a slightly higher 25.1 percent of the U.S. population but a whole decade later, in 2044. It is currently 17.7 percent of the U.S. population, at 56,754,000, said CDC.

CDC also raised issues on caring for Hispanics. “Robust nationwide long-term public health strategies to maximize Hispanic health in the United States need to consider Hispanic origin and nativity,” the federal agency recommended.

    There are likely 50 million illegal hispanics in the US already.

    • Bossman

      How do you know that?

      • Whitetrashgang

        He drove by your house.

        • Hammerheart

          The chickens and tent city gave it all away.

      • Eagle1212

        The 11 million illegals in the US has been used for years now but the actual number is unknown, it’s all based on what illegals tell the census on the tests but the majority don’t participate in them. It could be 20 million or 50 million, 50 million sounds like a real possibility.

        • Chip Carver

          The LA County Sheriffs Dept. estimated the number of illegals in LA County to be significantly over 8 million. I guess the other 3 million illegal hispanics are spread evenly across the US.

          • How? LA County has 10 million people overall. Sure I think they’re underreporting the illegal alien population, but 80% of LA County isn’t illegal aliens.

          • CharlieSeattle

            Ya, right.

    • SentryattheGate

      About 10-12 years ago, the reputable Pew Hispanic Research center claimed that approx. 3/4ths of all Hispanics in the US were here illegally!

  • This is why we sometimes have to take official projections with a grain of NaCl — A lot of NAM fecundity is missed and overlooked and underreported.

  • Tannenbaum

    It is fitting that these statistics have been compiled by the Center for Disease Control.

    • SentryattheGate

      Yes, and I add that Hispanics will be expensive; the crime, their high diabetes rates and their poor school performance and drop-out rates! And where is the precious diversity when nearly the entire Western Hemisphere is Hispanic?

      • Bossman

        Why does everyone think that a “Hispanic” is a Meso-American Indian who speaks Spanish. “Hispanic is a very broad category that includes all shades and can be a mixture of races.

        • DaveMed

          This is true, but it’s almost always the mestizos and mestizas who have outrageously irresponsible birthrates.

          • Bossman

            I’ll say it again, real Mestizos can pass for white. The people that you generally describe as Mestizos could still be 90% Indian. Are they more irresponsible than Blacks when it comes to birthrates? Are there any valid statistics on that subject?

          • DaveMed

            Obviously, it’s a matter of degree. If someone has a single, 300-year-old Amerindian ancestor, sure – they’ll likely look entirely White. And that’s fine – I’d certainly consider such a person White.

          • Bossman

            Here’s someone who is half Mexican. Is she 100% white or a Mestiza? She is Lynda Carter, former Miss USA and star of Wonder Woman TV series.

          • DaveMed

            Your attempts to appeal to the sex drives of the male readers of this site are getting old.

            And, by the way, it’s a very sleazy tactic.

          • Mack0

            One of my all time crushes along with Erin Grey. I’d miscegenate with that and be proud of myself.

          • Bossman

            It just means that you’re human and normal.

          • Jason Lewis

            Oh geeze what is Erin Grey?

          • Mack0

            Silver spoons and Buck Rodgers. Does that ring a bell?

          • Jason Lewis

            I know who she is I’m asking what she is. I thought she was a good looking lady too.

          • Mack0

            Duh! Sorry, man. I was being dense. I think she’s a Euro mutt.

          • John Smith

            I thought she was white.

          • Mack0

            I would consider her white. I was being sarcastic

          • Whitetrashgang

            I have her tied down in my basement,I am trying to learn Spanish if anyone axed.

          • Lexonaut

            We have a winner!

          • Jason Lewis

            I would say white. Makes me wonder about the actual numbers. We have a hispanic man at work who has a blonde/blue wife. Their five children are all blonde/blue with a Spanish last name. I’m sure the census people make all of them as hispanic. What would they really be?

          • Spaniard in LA

            The Mestizo couple who live across the street, have two little blonde girls. They both look Dutch. Mestizos prefer having White babies they call it “Mejorando la raza” translation “bettering the race.”

          • Rob

            Hispanic for freebie purposes and also pulling the race card.

          • Lexonaut

            TV commercials run in the Denver area for the Fred Loya insurance agency. They pitch to a Hispanic clientele yet the examples they show mainly look white. But if those folks self-identify as Hispanics then that’s how the census will classify them.

          • listenupbub

            She is much more that 50 percent white.

          • Greg Thomas

            The ones that look like her are not the ones slithering across our border illegally.

          • Bossman

            Okay, you’re correct about that. But why call them Mestizos when they are just simple , humble Meso-American Indians who just want to clean toilets and pick tomatoes to feed their families. These kind of people are doing much needed work and are no threat to America. Most importantly these kind of people have been interbreeding with whites ever since Columbus landed in the Americas over 500 years ago.

          • Lexonaut

            Mestizo simply means Hispanic/Indian mix. It’s actually a word from the Castilian Spanish spoken in Spain and it’s a reasonable descriptor.

            If people say they don’t like blacks (who typically are about 20% white) then I know whom they mean. If people say they don’t like Mestizos then again, I know whom they mean.

            Likewise, if a Mestizo were to call me a Gringo (instead of a blanco), I would have to agree with that description since I live north of both Mexico and the southwestern parts of the US. (I live in Colorado.)

          • Wing-nut.

            You have placed yourself.

          • On a per capita basis, mestizos aren’t as bad as blacks. Yes, I will grant you that. But pass for White? Are you fricken kidding me? POLL-EEEZZZZ!!! I’ve seen mestizos; now even a Pennsylvanian like me can be an expert. I KNOW what they look like. They ain’t Whites. The wide flat faces, the jet black hair. the wide mouths, aquiline noses, etc. They are “Indios.” Not as bad as blacks, true. But they have the potential of overwhelming us with numbers. Even blacks can’t pop out babies that fast. There are tens of millions of them just south of the border just waiting to walk in.

          • Greg Thomas

            Unfortunately, you have confused those who are crashing our borders with those mestizos “who can pass for White.” I’ve spent considerable time in mexico and have seen those who can pass for White. Generally, those mexicans with a strong Euro-Spanish lineage are the upper class of mexican society. Those are not the ones who are coming here in droves.

          • Lexonaut

            ” I’ve spent considerable time in mexico and have seen those who can pass for White. Generally, those mexicans with a strong Euro-Spanish lineage are the upper class of mexican society. Those are not the ones who are coming here in droves.”

            One has only to google “vincente fox images” to see that, Fox being a former president of Mexico.

          • Exactly. “Hispanics can be any race.” Yeah, but mainly the undesirable races. There ain’t no “Chinese Hispanics.”

          • Bossman

            When there are lots of “Chinese Hispanics” then America will be in real trouble. Although many Filipinos try to pass themselves off as “Hispanic” All I can say is thank God that there no Chinese Hispanics yet.

          • DonReynolds

            Filipinos are hispanic. Those island were Spanish territory until the Spanish-American war. Are Cubans considered hispanic? Yes, of course. How about Puerto Ricans? Yes, true again. All former Spanish colonies.

          • Bossman

            You seem to want to prove my point that “Hispanic” is a vague category. I myself would much prefer the term “Latin American” to describe people with cultural ties to Latin America.

          • DonReynolds

            I do not know anyone who cares what you prefer.
            Hispanic is the term the hispanics came up with, back when we called them Ibero-Americans. Maybe you can convince them you are right and they are wrong.
            Hispanic is not a vague category, it just is not a race. It is a language grouping and has nothing to do with race.

          • Northern American-Nationalist

            Haitians, Cajuns, and Québécois are Latin Americans too, so that term is fraught with a bit of confusion as well. “Ibero Americans” would exclude the peoples of the French Americas, but it would include the lusophonic Brazilians as well as perhaps Tejanos, Californios, and the original Hispanics of New Mexico. “Hispano Americans” is your best bet to aptly term the hispanaphones of “Latin America.”

          • Hilis Hatki

            Pepe Wong …
            Jokingly, since the 90’s Its the name I tell people Iam changing to.

        • Hey, “Boss”, because “mestizo” is the best we can hope for. Yeah, you think that suddenly millions of “White Hispanics” are going to be pouring in? Yeah, right. The nation of Spain has a worse birthrate problem than White America. There aren’t going to be many “Spaniards” left for long. And, no, I don’t think they will all be speaking Spanish. Some will be speaking Nahuatl, or Mayan, or whatever primitive language their cannibal ancestors spoke. Yeah, “Hispanics.”

        • listenupbub

          We think so because that is what we observe among the spanish-speakers we encounter in America.

      • John Smith

        But we’ll have cheap tacos.

      • Hammerheart

        Ladies and Gentlemen, let’s not feed the Bossman troll.

        • SentryattheGate

          Yes, arguing with a fool is a waste of time!

    • That was my first thought. Made me laugh a little.

  • Dave West

    I predict a lot more gated communities in America’s future.

    • Jason Lewis

      Along with white flight but laws will be made and hud homes built to stop that.

  • DaveMed

    The amounts of wasted time and resources resulting from this fiasco are truly mind-boggling.

    In some clinics, approximately every third patient I encounter speaks only Spanish. I mean this literally. If I point to my stomach and ask, “Pain?”, they shake their heads, look stupidly at me, and babble, “No, no, no English.” Then wait expectantly for someone who speaks Spanish to show up. It’s difficult to describe the frustration of having these examinations take 2-2.5x as long as they would with an English-speaking person.

    These people are so arrogant that they expect us to learn a language entirely for their convenience. And “we” accommodate them. In all of history, has such madness ever been seen before?

    I can’t wait for the day when I have the autonomy to tailor my practice to disproportionately benefit White people.

    • Petronius

      Are most of them literate and fluent in Spanish, or is their birth language something else, say, Nahuatl, Maya, Quechua, or Aymara?

      This is not a joke, I’m just curious.

      • DaveMed

        Almost invariably Spanish – I think. I would be surprised to learn that the doctors and interpreters who converse with these patients happen to speak the other languages you mentioned.

        • Petronius

          Can they read and write Spanish … or perhaps you have no way to tell? For example, if there are Spanish language magazines in the clinic waiting room, do they pick them up and read them?

          • DaveMed

            To be perfectly honest – and I’m not trying to take a cheap shot here – the most common activity in which they tend to be engaged while waiting is babysitting their crying children. I haven’t thought of observing their reading habits, but I’ll take a look…

          • DonReynolds

            Many of what we get in the USA are illiterate in their own language. They neither read or write in Spanish. Some know only the language of their own rural tribal area and never attended a formal school. So the idea that we can accommodate them with Spanish-language interpreters is too often false.

          • John Smith

            Most Mexicans have only a 3rd grade education level, and that’s an average.

          • Spaniard in LA

            It depends. Mexicans who live in rural areas probably do have a 3rd grade education. In big cities like Guadalara and Monterey people have more access to education. The Mexican government know keeps tabs on who goes to school. They created a special department called El DIF which is equivalent to what we call Social Workers. I really hope they fix their country and not just for them but for our sake.

          • John Smith

            The ones who come here do, and I doubt they’re from the cities.

        • Just you wait, my friend. The “Natives” are apparently taking back the country. After five hundred years, much of the Western Hemisphere is going back to it’s original state. In a couple of centuries, there will be little memory of the great civilization that once existed here. I almost feel like Charlton Heston, discovering the half buried Statue of Liberty.

          • Bossman

            That could still be better than having it completely taken over by Chinese and other East Asians. In a world completely dominated by the Chinese, I don’t know how a white man would feel.

          • Tim

            My mother took my friends and I to that movie for my 10th birthday party. I just happened to guess the plot early on while the crash survivors were still walking through the forbidden zone. They did a quick camera pan shot across a desolate background in which I saw Mt. Rushmore. I havent seen the movie in years, but next time you see it look for that bit of foreshadowing…

      • dd121

        When in Peru most of the natives spoke Quechua as a first language but they communicated with the Spanish invaders in Spanish.

    • Wing-nut.

      You don’t haft to wait.

  • dd121

    That just means Hillary will have more people to pander to.

    • Jason Lewis

      Eventually white women will be dumped by the minorities.

      • That’s right. These liberal White women that have thrown their men under the bus for so long, just wait until we descend into Third World status. No other culture respects women like Whites do. “Get back in dere, you bitch! I say I wanna mucho tequila, muy woopa!”

  • MekongDelta69

    The endless browning of America…

    • John Smith

      America sh*ts itself, IOW.

  • MooTieFighter

    Why are we so determined to give up what our founders fought so hard to build? I guess we desire to be a third world country.

    • John Smith

      Already got the president of one….

  • DonReynolds

    No surprise that the Liberals keep preaching this nonsense……but they should always add the following…..”IF WE DO NOTHING”…….yes, that would be true. But I do not expect this country to do nothing about being invaded.

  • Dave West

    “Racism and hate in America will finally be done away with once our peaceful and intelligent brown brothers to the south show us the way!”
    – modern day libtard blather

  • George Costanza

    It’s only a matter of time before the Dems become the anti-white party, not that they aren’t already…But in the next 50yrs when the anti white propaganda reaches its zenith I think well see more ultra conservative candidates begin to surface. Only a matter of time…

    • John Smith

      When you’re being attacked for what you are, why bother trying to placate your attackers anymore? Embrace that which makes you hated and stick together. We already jump through hoops for 13% of the population, so why not let the Hispanics and negroes do it after 2045, when we become a minority?

  • Rob

    I guess lots of ozone depletion in the US due to the flatulence from these Hispanics that eat beans.

  • Rob

    I know a South American girl that looks like a Swedish beauty, but she is mostly of Italian and German background and she even has a German last name, She told me that she has some small percentage of Peruvian Indian blood. She classifies herself as HISPANIC and NOT White. She speak Spanish and she is even dating a Mexican mestizo and her brother that is blond in the summer is dating a central American girl that is negroid looking. So no point in pandering to these whites that call themselves Hispanics, because they support the destruction of the US, White America and also support LA Raza.

  • KenelmDigby

    Don’t you think it is ironic that the Centers for Disease Control published this report?

    • John Smith

      Just what I was thinking – they obviously recognize disease vectors when they see them, unless they’re black Africans, who should just be waived from any restrictions to entry.

  • John Smith

    Always have more groups competing for resources so those in charge can divide and rule.

  • Hilis Hatki

    I cant find my diploma this morning … is the CDC saying the increase of Hispanics in the U.S. is a threat to public safety? Maybe America needs vaccine shots.

  • Eagle1212

    All thanks to out of control illegal immigration and birth rates among them ever increasing to an alarming rate, if our government starts militarizing the border down south, you would see less of these invaders slithering through and stealing everything from American citizens.

  • Augustus3709

    The US isn’t becoming more Hispanic, Mexico is just growing on top of US land.

    They’re taking advantage of broken borders and multiculturalism. Multiculturalism was the poison. Everything thereafter is a symptom.
