Hispanic Growth Driven by Citizens, Not Immigrants

Joe and Jane America have a misconception about Hispanics in general. They believe that the entire Hispanic population growth is driven by immigrants that arrive daily from Mexico.

That belief is categorically not true. The numbers don't lie. The Census Bureau has released its latest findings that show that "... 60% of the 1.3 million new Hispanics in 2005 are citizens because they were born here..."

It also says that "... in effect, the data show that even if immigration came to a standstill, the Hispanic population boom would not end for at least another generation..."

Imagine that...
