Whether the folks at the radical La Raza get their wish to reconquest California, the demographic result may turn out the same.
According to the most recent census, at least 44 percent of residents in California speak Spanish at home.
That’s compared to a third of folks in both Texas and New Mexico.
The number is more than twice the national average at 21%.
It goes without saying that California has been leading the charge to allow illegal immigrants to stick around under just about any circumstance.
But baked into that equation is yet another cost that will help bring the People’s Republic of California closer to bankruptcy: every single government document, publication, and communication will soon need to be created in two languages.
That means more paper, ink, interpreters, etc at a cost of hundreds of millions.
Hasta la vista, Cali.
Here’s more from CNS News…
In California–which with a July 2016 population of 39,250,017 is the nation’s most populous state–44.6 percent of the people five years of age and older do not speak English at home, according to data released this week by the Census Bureau.
At the same time, according to the Census Bureau, 18.6 percent of California residents 5 and older do not speak English “very well.”
That ranks California No.1 among the states for the percentage of people in both of these categories.
Nationwide, 21.6 percent speak a language other than English at home and 8.6 percent speak English less than very well.
Texas ranked second for the percentage of residents five and older who do not speak English at home (35.6 percent). New Mexico ranked third (34.5 percent); New Jersey ranked fourth (31.7 percent) and New York ranked fifth (31.0 percent).
West Virginia had the smallest percentage of residents (2.5 percent) who spoke a language other than English at home. Montana had the second smallest (3.7 percent); Mississippi had the third smallest (3.8 percent); Alabama, the fourth (5.1 percent); and North Dakota the fifth (5.2 percent).
The Census Bureau asks about the language people speak in their homes and how well they speak English in its American Community Survey. The numbers released this week were for the 2016 survey.
“We ask one question about whether people speak a language other than English at home, what language they speak, and how well they speak English to create a profile of the languages spoken in communities,” says the Census Bureau on its website.
