I will defer to others on this topic:
- Latina Lista writes: “National Population Milestone Downplayed in Light of Immigration Debate“
- from HispanicBusiness.com: “As Nation Reaches 300 Million, Hispanics Biggest Component in Growth“
- and from the Houston Chronicle, for the local perspective: “‘Texas of today’ is a mirror for the U.S. of tomorrow – Experts predict Hispanics will be a driving force and economy, politics will feel the effects’
Important information, from the Houston Chronicle story:
In 2043, when the U.S. population is expected to hit 400 million, Hispanics will figure even more significantly in Texas and across the nation, according to projections.
By then, Texas promises to be utterly transformed as it contributes significantly to national trends.
The state will more than double its population, to 45 million from 22.8 million, by 2040, according to the Census Bureau projections.
Good info to have, if you live in Texas.
