Shannon Roberts | 19 June 2013

A new milestone in the gradual decline of white people in America occurred this week.  The number of non-Hispanic white deaths outnumbered births for the first time.  Significantly, several demographers have said that they are not aware of another time in American history when the dominant racial group in America has shrunk in this way, even taking into account such events as the depression and the two world wars last century.

The US continues to debate what should be done with the country’s many illegal immigrants who currently pay no tax.  New proposed legislation could put the more than 10 million illegal immigrants on the road to citizenship, along with allowing thousands of new workers in to the country.  However, it will also hold businesses more responsible for verifying that all their employees are legal citizens.  If passed, the legislation will mean the most significant changes to US immigration law in nearly 30 years.
