Do you agree with Hispanics in Texas who declare 'It's basically over for Anglos' there?

Looking at population projections for Texas, demographer Steve Murdock concludes: "It's basically over for Anglos."

Two of every three Texas children are now non-Anglo and the trend line will become even more pronounced in the future, said Murdock, former U.S. Census Bureau director and now director of the Hobby Center for the Study of Texas at Rice University.

Today's Texas population can be divided into two groups, he said. One is an old and aging Anglo and the other is young and minority. Between 2000 and 2040, the state's public school enrollment will see a 15 percent decline in Anglo children while Hispanic children will make up a 213 percent increase, he said.

The state's largest county - Harris - will shed Anglos throughout the coming decades. By 2040, Harris County will have about 516, 000 fewer Anglos than lived in the Houston area in 2000, while the number of Hispanics will increase by 2.5 million during the same period, Murdock said. The projection assumes a net migration rate equal to one-half of 1990-2000.

Most of the state's population growth is natural, Murdock told the House Mexican American Legislative Caucus today. About 22 percent of the growth comes from people moving to Texas from other states.

About 6 percent of the state's population is not documented, he said.

By 2040, only 20 percent of the state's public school enrollment will be Anglo, he said. Last year, non-Hispanic white children made up 33.3 percent of the state's 4.8 million public school enrollment...

The state's future looks bleak assuming the current trend line does not change because education and income levels for Hispanics lag considerably behind Anglos, he said....Today's Texas population can be divided into two groups, he said.

Of the state's 254 counties, 79 recorded declining population during the past 20 years. All are rural. An additional 30 Texas counties, he said, would have also lost population had they not experienced Hispanic growth.

    Hispanics actually assimilate into Anglo culture rather easily at points. I'm Hispanic but several generations an American and I identify very little with newer Hispanic immigrants.

    The Irish and Italians assimilated into Anglo culture and now we barely consider them outsiders. The same will happen with many Hispanics.

    I think that is basically true. The illegal aliens have a huge amount of support from the growers in South Texas, and money seems to be running the Texas Legislature.

    Most of those children that are causing the growth are 'anchor babies' and have the purpose of increasing the welfare of the parents. It is not a good circumstance and it is not going to end well. Hispanics feel strongly that the taxpayers should pay for the education of the illegal aliens and that is bubbling on top of it all.

    LOL - no, not even close. Gerrymandering will keep Hispanics second class citizens in TX for decades. TX will have a State Gun before Hispanics take over the legislature.

    Anything can happen when you don't follow your own country's laws. Porous borders and lack of enforcement is the cause, and no Hispanic who cares about America should be cheering this on. We have many bloodlines in this country and the only thing uniting us is freedom and enforcing our rights to it.

    I don't agree with anyone that says anything like...sounds pretty racist to me. But I agree that the projections about Hispanics overtaking whites in terms of population numbers is right.

    viva la reconquista!

    God said go forth and be fruitful and multiply. But you have swayed from the path of God and have fallen from His grace. And so a more pious and righteous race shall replace you.

    ban abortion and welfare/free anything and you can keep America... btw, notice Utah's birth rate.
