Minority Births in US Over 50%

Share Button

It’s official – over half of babies are being born to racial and ethnic minorities in the United States, according to a report in the Associated Press.

Minorities increased 1.9% to 114.1 million in 2010, or about 36.6% of Americans.  They made up approximately 2.02 million births in the 12 months between July 2010 and July 2011, or 50.4% of US births, compared to 37% in 1990.

The annual growth rates for Latinos and Asians fell sharply last year to just over 2%, roughly half the rates in 2000 and the lowest in more than a decade. The growth rate for black Americans stayed flat at 1%.

The census report also showed that Hawaii, California, New Mexico, Texas, and the District of Columbia have minority populations exceeding 50%.

    OTHER FOREIGN COUNTRIES POOR ARE SMUGGLING THEIR BABIES OVER HERE, FOR U.S. TAXPAYERS TO SUBSIDIZE THEM.

    The child tax reimbursement is not some kind of loophole for illegal alien workers to use to grow their refunds. The IRS rules for eligible children still apply and the law is very clear that the credit is limited to those children who are classified as “a U.S. citizen, a U.S. national, or a U.S. resident alien.” All others are committing fraud; as was previously discovered years back, when prison detainees were caught in the act. This is why we must seriously rethink the “Birthright Citizenship” law on the books now. This policy needs to be amended,–immediately so no foreign mother who slips past the U.S. border Patrol, or lies on their entry form prior to arriving on an international flight cannot use the U.S. taxpayers, as their own personal bank account?

    This law is ridiculously out of date with global travel, as any pregnant female can arrive on U.S. soil and claim American citizenship for their new born baby. No change in the law is required, just an amendment, so babies born in the jurisdiction of the United States–at least one parent must be a citizen. Otherwise the annual estimated number of 400.000 newborns entering this country will add up in the billions. Once status is claimed, these mothers with babies are eligible for food, housing, medical and schooling until the age of 18 including their mother. Reported by the Center for Immigration Studies an average annual cost per child K-12 is $7,161.00 and exceeds $109 billion annually per cycle of ‘Foothold’ babies. That’s your taxes given out to the 400,000 mothers and their kids annually, gaining a nice little inheritance from Americans.

    Is there so much money just lying around, as the Solar panel manufacturer “Solyndra’ with 535 million worth of loan guarantees or the General Service Administration (GSA) debacle in Las Vegas and whatever else is out there? How much more money are taxpayers supposed to conjure up, without accountability? Illegal Immigration unfortunately has adverse consequences on all our lives, but mainly the cost of supporting them. $113 billion dollars a year and climbing is a very unhealthy situation, when we cannot cater to our own poor.

    As I see it and millions of Americans, no matter their race, color or faith should join up with the TEA PARTY? The outcome is to rid the Congress of those politicians’ that are obstacles in changing laws detrimental to the welfare, security and health of all citizens and residents. Gone already is Richard Lugar, who deliberation was no other politician could unseat him, when as a Republican he was siding with the Liberals to pass another Amnesty for illegal aliens. Who is next to clock out and which state is to be hounded by the Department of Justice for protecting their citizens? First it was Arizona, Then Sheriff Joe Arpaio’and then Alabama was intimidated? Yet these Liberal czars condoned by Obama, has done nothing to stop the emergence of Sanctuary States like California and Nevada?

    But even so we must be on our guard against all future elections, even down to the municipal level, as non citizens in large numbers have been discovered in the voter rolls in Florida. Democrats no matter the future consequences of the citizen’s right to vote have shown indifferent to any new measure to stop any ineligible person voting. In fact they have shown no desire to strengthen election laws, by insisting that every person who appears to vote has an official picture ID? Just by this reluctance for a fair and respect for our voting laws, illustrates they don’t care who votes, especially by illegal aliens for the left? Read everything you wanted to know about illegal immigration, true statistics and more at NumbersUSA and American Patrol.

    In addition the National Liberal media had reported nationwide, the dwindling of numbers of illegal aliens crossing the Southern border. The source was coming from the Pew Hispanic Research Center? But the Washington Examiner press negates this as a lie; the original data was coming from the Obama Administration. When conducting interviews with Border Patrol officials the numbers are not slowing down.

    A Border Patrol official working along the Texas border said administration officials are deliberately failing to document what is actually happening on the border. “In many cases my supervisors make it clear that they don’t want increased apprehension numbers, which means no arrests,” he said.

    Saying, “Security is being compromised as the government seeks to keep a lid on the border as a campaign issue during the presidential election cycle. Department of Homeland Security’s Border Patrol agents and Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers are being told not to make arrests of noncriminal illegal immigrants and not to patrol areas of high traffic along the roughly 2,000-mile Southwest border”.

    THE LIES KEEP COMING? SPEAK-UP!

    The mandated E-Verify law is being exposed to the public eye once again, with increased resistance from GOP House speaker, John Boehner of Ohio and Dave Camp of Michigan, who is Chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee. Americans must insist these lawmakers stop blocking the 50-state H.R.2885 – Chairman Smith's 'Legal Workforce Act’. The E-Verify bill, should concern every jobless citizens and legal residents, as if implemented on a national scale would reject illegal foreign workers.

    On the topic of E-Verify, Sen. Sessions recalled something that a Border Patrol agent told GOP Presidential Hopeful Mitt Romney: “The administration has also been resistant to the popular E-Verify program, never once including it in any of its jobs or economic plans. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE, has effectively ended worksite enforcement operations, meaning employers can continue to hire illegal workers rather than out-of-work Americans….”.

    They [Border Patrol agents] said “when employers are willing to hire people who are here illegally, that's a magnet, and it draws them in. And sanctuary cities, giving tuition breaks to the kids of illegal aliens….. Those things also have to be stopped. If we want to secure the border, we have to make sure we have a fence, determining where people are, enough agents to oversee it, and turn off that magnet. We can't talk about amnesty; we cannot give amnesty to those who have come here illegally”.

    Beforehand Sen. Sessions delivered a speech on the Senate floor calling for an end to the Child Tax Care loophole that allows illegal aliens to collect thousands of dollars in tax refunds by filing with an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). This has been going on for years. This cannot continue. It must be stopped, and fixing it can't be delayed. The Treasury Department's own inspector general for Tax Administration, who analyzes problems within the agency and issues reports, reported that in 2010 the Internal Revenue Service paid illegal aliens a staggering $4.2 billion in child tax credits for dependents, a great deal of whom don't even live in the country. This has been going on for years. This cannot continue. It must be stopped, and fixing it can't be delayed.

    According to a WTHR Indianapolis TV station there were four illegal alien workers living in the same Trailer park. Between the four of them, they claimed 20 children as dependents, but while investigating the story, only one child was seen living at the home. "We found, in many cases, they're getting these tax credits for nieces and nephews and children who aren't even in the United States," All these people have to do is possess a not from the school, which in itself is open to large areas of fraud. Claimed on a federal form 8812, this credit is for specific taxpayers who get lesser than full amount of the child tax credit. Prior to this outcry by Sen. Sessions, the bill to close the loophole has gone nowhere, but now H.R. 1956 has passed the house and need your voice to add to the anger and utter frustration. Call the Washington central switchboard at 202-224-3121 and inundate your U.S. Senators and demand this law passes, along with mandatory E-Verify and the Birthright Citizenship amendment.
