BLOG: Look out! The Hispanics are coming!

Tom Jackson

What do you call an Op-Ed that warns that white people are in trouble in the U.S. because the number of Hispanic people in the U.S. is rising?

Why, it's an award-winner!

Kaitlyn Davis' piece, "Immigration keeps changing face of America," ran on our editorial page on Wednesday. It warns of the dire threat provided by the "changing dynamic of the American population." Erie County Republican Women, impressed by Ms. Davis' essay, declared her piece the winner in the group's essay contest.

Davis is unhappy because she's a college student and she wasn't able to find a full time job this summer, and thinks "illegal immigrants" might be the cause. She offers no evidence to back up her opinion.

As Davis herself notes, the economy hasn't been in good shape lately. Could there be some other reason Davis didn't get the jobs she applied for?

But that's not her main concern. Her big worry is about the "dramatic shifts in the population breakdown." She can't decide how many Hispanics the U.S. will have in 2050 — at one point in her piece, it's "23 percent," at another point, it's "about 30 percent" — but either way, "it's hard to ignore the facts," she says.

There's a long history of worrying that the "wrong people" are taking over. In 1903, Teddy Roosevelt warned about declining birth rates among Anglo Saxons would lead to "race suicide." Somehow, the country survived.

The 2010 Census showed that Hispanics made up 37.6 of the population in California. Does that really make California a "worse" state than Ohio (3.1 percent Hispanic) or Alabama (3.9 percent)?

Mr Jackson, your question "The 2010 Census showed that Hispanics made up 37.6 of the population in California. Does that really make California a "worse" state than Ohio (3.1 percent Hispanic) or Alabama (3.9 percent)?"     

Answer YES, California has the largest state deficit, and gives welfare and public education to illegals including college aide. 

Kaitlyn Davis, you are a PATROIT, Mr. Jackson you are a political PINHEAD.....

 If any person from any place is is in this country illegally then that person should be removed by any elected or appointed official that has the authority to remove them.

Most any elected person or appointed judge or anyother person with the authority to do so would normally take an oath to uphold the constitution and laws of the land. If they do vow to do so and don't then they themselves are not conforming to the law and ergo should be removed from that position.

If this is what the American people do not want then the laws should be changed by congress but whatever is the law unless changed should be enforced.

I feel certain that if the persons in office would not enforce the law and it was something that went contrary to Mr. Jackson's preference then he would call for the rule of law.

In most cases some persons will be for some things and others will oppose some things so to be fair the rule of law should be enforced each and every time and if it is not good then as I mentioned the law should be changed.
