Hola, Tejas
The AP has gotten a preview of the census data to be released later today about Texas, and it shows what most everyone knows: The state has gotten more Hispanic.

Data shows 38 percent of the 25.1 million people residing in Texas are Hispanic, 45 percent are Anglo and 11.5 percent are black.

Minority groups accounted for more than 80 percent of the 4.3 million increase in the state's population.

"The Hispanic growth has been even larger than we anticipated," former U.S. Census Director and longtime Texas demographer Steve Murdock told the news agency.

When the more detailed stufff comes out, expect graphics geeks to do their best translating it into informative maps.

And of course, political geeks will be primed to see how the data will affect which areas get the four new congressional seats Texas has been awarded.

Update: Also from the report:

Data for Texas show that the five most populous incorporated places and their 2010 Census counts are Houston, 2,099,451; San Antonio, 1,327,407; Dallas, 1,197,816; Austin, 790,390; and Fort Worth, 741,206. Houston grew by 7.5 percent since the 2000 Census. San Antonio grew by 16.0 percent, Dallas grew by 0.8 percent, Austin grew by 20.4 percent, and Fort Worth grew by 38.6 percent.

THE SPREADING PLAGUE OF POOR FOR TAXPAYERS TO SUPPORT

How many of them are illegal aliens? Not undocumented immigrants or unauthorized immigrants, but ILLEGAL ALIENS. Eventually the Liberal progressive parrots, will realize they are destroying this country. But perhaps they are part of George Soros agenda of propagating the whole of the United States with illegal aliens; not just people from South of the border. But the destitute of Northern Europe, Asia and anybody else who can lie at the airport terminal? What I want to know is how many illegal aliens voted in the previous election? How many was shown by ACORN and radical groups such as LA Raza, who have shown them how to cheat the the elections, using the absentee ballot. It's very easy to cheat the system. It surely happened in Sen. Harry Reid's home base of Nevada that is overrun with illegal aliens, which includes the Sanctuary State of California that is being bled dry of finances by the invasion. Where 80% percent in most public schools are the children of illegal aliens, crammed into classrooms where nobody learns anything. They have wrecked havoc in California, now its Texas turn?

The new congressional seats will go to racist old white Republicans who could care less about them.

You're silly. What you should be supporting are strong unions that made a middle class in the 40's, 50s and 60s, and the country's best years as far as living standards go. These stronger unions would not only help raise wages across the board, they could also protect workers rights and introduce a fair market value for this labor.

Better yet, stronger unions would introduce a sense of outrage when CEOs are paid 300 times the average workers salary, and pay only about 10 % more in taxes.

and who continue to try to get re-elected by sending out anti-immigrant postcards - at our expense - to all their constituents named Martinez, Ramirez, Cruz and Gutierrez.

Unions also made organized crime stronger in the 40s, 50s, and 60s...
