Bad news for Hispanic women!

Hispanic Family Values? by Heather Mac Donald paints a rather grim picture of the future:

"Hispanic women have the highest unmarried birthrate in the country—over three times that of whites and Asians, and nearly one and a half times that of black women, according to the Centers for Disease Control."

Yet, it gets worse than that:

"Despite the strong family support, the prevalence of single parenting among Hispanics is producing the inevitable slide into the welfare system.

“The girls aren’t marrying the guys, so they are married to the state,” Dr. Sanchez observes.

Hispanics now dominate the federal Women, Infants, and Children free food program; Hispanic enrollment grew over 25 percent from 1996 to 2002, while black enrollment dropped 12 percent and white enrollment dropped 6.5 percent.

Illegal immigrants can get WIC and other welfare programs for their American-born children."

Where is all of this going to stop? I don't know but it makes you wonder.
