Texas' Hispanic population grew by 2 million in the past decade, on pace to be largest share of

Texas’ Hispanic population grew by 2 million in the past decade, on pace to be largest share of state by 2021

by Alexa Ura and Anna Novak, Texas Tribune


Texas’ Hispanic population has grown by more than 2 million since 2010, according to new population estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau, and the state's demographer now predicts that Hispanics will be the state's largest population group by mid-2021.

An annual gain of 201,675 between July 2018 and July 2019 pushed the count of Hispanic residents to more than 11.5 million, the census estimates show. Although annual growth has slowed slightly in recent years, the new figures put a sharp point on how quickly the Hispanic population continues to climb. The annual growth in Hispanic residents has outpaced the combined growth among white, Black and Asian residents every year since 2010.

Texas still has a bigger white population — up to 11.95 million last year — but it grew by just 36,440 last year and by about half a million since 2010. White population growth has been so sluggish this decade that the increase in the number of Asian Texans, who make up a small share of the total population, has almost caught up with the increase in white Texans.

The latest estimates could be the last to come in before lawmakers embark on redrawing the state’s congressional and legislative maps in 2021 to account for population growth — a fraught exercise that has previously led to drawn-out litigation over claims that new maps discriminate against voters of color who are behind the state’s growth. During the last redistricting cycle, Hispanics accounted for about 65% of that growth. With a year of growth left to be accounted for, their share of Texas’ population increase since 2010 is at nearly 54%.

2. But there is that Koch Group acting undercover to make Hispanics vote repuke

So we can’t make Hispanics reliable Democratic voter. I saw this doc in Free Speech TV about how they are organizing Hispanics to become repukes.

My husband works with an insane Mexican guy from Texas who is a pro MF45 supporter who would sell out his race for Rush, Levin, Hannity etc. He is so brainwashed he believes all the garbage he hears on OANN and think Fox has gone liberal. And if he walked down the street in the wrong neighborhood might get strung up by his appearance alone!
