Ad Feedback

For the first time, minorities make up more than half of the children born in the United States.

New 2011 census estimates show that, as a whole, the U.S. minority population continues to rise.

However, there are signs immigration growth is slowing. The annual rates of growth for Hispanic and Asians fell about 2 percent last year.

Demographers say the peak of the Hispanic population boom may have passed. But the census data shows that the nations racial make-up is changing.

For more on the impact of the population change, CBN News spoke with Gerson Moreno-Riano, dean of the School of Undergraduate Studies at Regent University and associate professor of government.
