How do you feel about the illegal immigrants? How do you feel about the illegal immigrants from Mexico? I was talking with a friend of mine who teaches in Cartersville, Georgia. She said the children can enroll in school without a social security number, they receive free lunches and free medical care. Plus, their parents are not paying taxes. Do you think illegal immigrants are taking jobs away from other Americans or are they taking the jobs we don't want? Do you think illegal immigrants from Mexico should be given amnesty? Do you think illegal immigrant from other countries should be given amnesty also? The article below isn't about illegal immigrants but mentions immigration is helping to increase the number of Hispanics in the country. =================== Hispanics now outnumber blacks as largest minority group in U.S. Hispanics have surpassed blacks as the nation's largest minority group, the Census Bureau said Tuesday. The Latino population grew to 37 million in July 2001, up 4.7 percent from April 2000. The black population increased 2 percent during the same period, to 36.1 million. The estimates are the Census Bureau's first statistics on race and ethnicity since results from the 2000 census were released two years ago.
