Comment: Californian Demographic Revolution - City Journal describes California's demographic revolution "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… And as California goes, so goes the nation, whose own Hispanic population shift is just a generation or two behind. The scale and speed of the Golden State's ethnic transformation are unprecedented. In the 1960s, Los Angeles was the most Anglo-Saxon of the nation's ten largest cities; today, Latinos make up nearly half of the county's residents and one-third of its voting-age population. A full 55 percent of Los Angeles County's child population has immigrant parents. From 2000 to 2010, the state's Hispanic population grew 28 percent, to reach 37.6 percent of all residents, almost equal to the shrinking white population's 40 percent. Nearly half of all California births today are Hispanic." Demographics is an ocean that rises and falls slowly, but all our institutions rise and fall with it. Immigration flows or lack thereof is the most important factor shaping demographic transformations currently under way in all developed countries.
