Importance of minorities steadily growing

The headline in today's Washington Post highlights the quickly growing population of minorities in America. Here's a snippet about how significant this growth is:

A similar dynamic is occurring nationally, with the Hispanic population growing by 26 percent between 2000 and 2006, from 35 million to 44 million. Demographers said the effect of this growth has been further heightened by the increasing inclination of minorities -- particularly Hispanics -- to move beyond major metropolitan areas in which they have historically concentrated, into suburban, exurban and rural localities.


I don't pretend to be an expert on the immigration issue. In fact, I freely admit that it's one of those issues that I find it difficult to get my head around because it is so complex. However, what I do know is that we've got to find a way to show immigrants that we recognize the value that they add to our economy. At the same time, I think we should acknowledge that any notion that we can possibly begin the deportation of every immigrant who resides in the USA without proper documentation is ill-conceived and impossible.

So far, efforts to find a means to solve this growing crisis have failed. I'll leave it to others to figure out the solution, but please do it soon.
