Race to the State's New Census Map

Categories: News

The U.S. Census Bureau sent to the state Legislature today the map you see above, along with details about the latest population count intended to assist with redistricting -- including numbers related to racial make-up and voting age.

Per the latest tally
, since the 2000 Census was taken the city of Dallas has grown by .8 percent -- a far cry from the 20 percent growth experienced by Austin, San Antonio's 16-percent uptick, and the 7.5 percent jump seen in Houston. Dallas's population now numbers 1,197,816 -- making us the third most-populous incorporated place in the state, behind Houston (at 2,099,451) and San Antonio (1,327,407). Also, notes the Census Bureau:
The largest county is Harris, with a population of 4,092,459. Its population grew by 20.3 percent since 2000. The other counties in the top five include Dallas, with a population of 2,368,139 (increase of 6.7 percent); Tarrant, 1,809,034 (increase of 25.1 percent); Bexar, 1,714,773 (increase of 23.1 percent); and Travis, 1,024,266 (increase of 26.1 percent).

Katrina probably added to the population as well.

RW,

Is it possible to get some clarification on Dallas proper's true population? Texas Tribune says its 1.19 million, and the DMN is saying it is 1.3 million. Census Bureau projected Dallas to have a population of 1.29 million.

SPREADING LIKE THE PLAGUE

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?

Doing the numbers it looks like the city of Dallas is now only 8% white.

My guess is tearing down apartments in Lake Highlands, Vickery Meadows, and NW Dallas, and then the market tanking before putting up new ones, cost us those 100,000 residents. The Tribune number is right according to the Census. The projected number is from the ACS which is 5 year rolling average-- hence my tear downs theory. The DMN number seem to be made-up BS- par for the course.

My question is, who the hell "liked" this?

I seriously doubt many illegal aliens actually filled out and submitted census forms. Which means, of course, the actual number of Hispanics in the city/county/state/country is actually quite a bit larger than the census numbers indicate.

"Where 80% percent in most public schools are the children of illegal aliens" ....

You, of course, realize that if those children of illegal aliens were born here they are citizens of the United States and are afforded the same rights, privileges, and protections as children of good-ol'-boys.
