Why do US Census ,etc not count White Hispanics as White people ?

I could never understand that ?

They are saying when determining race in the US that Hispanic ethnicity means some whites are somehow less white than other whites.

Update:

For example the census will say that 72% White , and that does include Hispanic Whites, but many people talking about race in the US use the US census ( Non hispanic White) figure which is only 60.4% and that percentage is dropping year by year.

    Hisapnia was conquered by African Arabs, they weren't really white even before they got to the Americas.

    White Hispanics are not really white. They have Amerindian admixture in them.

    Do you really consider people like AOC to be white?  I don't.
