“California is in the middle of a far-reaching demographic shift: Hispanics, who already constitute a majority of the state’s schoolchildren, will be a majority of its workforce and of its population in a few decades. This is an even more momentous development than it seems. Unless Hispanics’ upward mobility improves, the state risks becoming more polarized economically and more reliant on a large government safety net. And as California goes, so goes the nation, whose own Hispanic population shift is just a generation or two behind.” ~ Heather Mac Donald, City Journal, Winter 2012, Vol. 22, No. 1
Excellent article by Heather Mac Donald showing the decline of MexiFornia (with the one caveat that she’s wrong about the need for more high-skilled immigration, a fact outlined by Dan Rather, Norman Matloff, and George Borjas).
