Should our nation ever attain a non-European majority, our ways of lifewill be forever lost; they will be replaced by the ways of lifecherished by the Third World populations who will then control ourpolitical process. America’s culture and political system will then, ofcourse, simply reflect its Third World majority—it will begin toresemble Mexico, or Haiti, or Cuba.

BBC: Minority groups make up an increasing share of thepopulation in almost every US state, according to figures released bythe US Census Bureau.

Legal and illegal immigrants make up a growing portionof the population in 46 states and the District of Columbia, withCalifornia leading the field.

There are more than 35 million immigrants in the US – or 12.4% of the population, up from 11.1% in 2001.

Immigration is a big issue ahead of the autumn’s mid-term congressional polls.


Immigrants and Hispanics are attracted by a healthyeconomy that offers jobs requiring few skills, says Michael MacFarlane,South Carolina’s state demographer. “They are in all sorts ofconstruction, food processing, service jobs, the whole spectrum, wherethey used to be primarily in agriculture,” he told the Associated Pressnews agency.

Fewer whites

At the other extreme, only 1.1% of West Virginia’spopulation was born outside the US while Mississippi, Montana and NorthDakota had 2% or less.

Whites are a minority in four states – Hawaii, New Mexico, California and Texas – and the District of Columbia.
