Southern California's inland counties grew at a rapid clip in the last decade, far surpassing the growth rates of the region's coastal counties, according to U.S. census data released Tuesday.

Riverside County saw a whopping 41% increase in population in the decade, recording 2,189,641 residents in 2010. San Bernardino County saw a 19% increase, with a total population of 2,035,210.

Both counties experienced an explosion of suburban growth in the early part of the decade, only to be hit hard as the economy turned sour and many of the homes fell into foreclosure.

Los Angeles County saw only a 3.1% growth rate over the decade, with a population of 9,818,605. San Diego County grow by 10% and Orange County by 5.8%.

Once again, Latinos saw the largest increases in population over the decade, making up 37.6% of the state's total population. As a percentage of the total population, whites dropped to about 40%.

The Asian population was 12.8% and the black population was 5.8%.

Riverside is just one of the hotbeds of the great Mexican Mortgage Meltdown that's put this country into an economic spiral.
Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and others who okayed ridiculous home mortgages to illegal immigrants with nothing more than a tax ID and a promise to pay, dominated "liar loans" and will take years to unwind.
Obama has done far from enough to stop this massive mortgage fiasco. As of late, he's made a nice nesting place for flippers to start their feeding frenzy, at the cost of taxpayers... again, while continuing the fool's dictum of the "right to own a house," heaving unbearable responsibilities on our nation's ignorant poor, who buy into the hoopla, only to discover part of not being poor is accepting responsibility--like paying your government subsidized mortgage on time. They fail, banks bail, and taxpayers foot the bill.

Dont't blame the illegals. The pitiful voters didn't have the courage, character, or integrity necessary to elect pro citizen politicians in our State.

We failed our own families on a level that would have been unthinkable for previous generations of Californians.

I disagree. Laws can be broken whether there's a sheriff in town or not. Illegal aliens are criminals, plain and simple. Now they're robbing our taxpayers via welfare for their 3.5 anchor babies, and massive bad mortgage debt. Meanwhile, city workers are being laid off, and unions are being deconstructed, and for what? So Pedro can sire another baby he cannot afford?

Its not just the illegal immigration thats the problem, it is also the legal immigration that has flooded our job markets with foreign workers with visas that bring their entire family to live here. The mass immigration has been unchecked since the mid seventies with the boat people coming here from southeast asia and visas that are hand out like jelly beans to millions of foreigners.

Also those that hold HB1 visa too. They are taking our jobs at half the wages, and have NO benefits. People like Bill Gates begs congress to send more and more, while claim he can't find qualified workers in THE SILICON VALLEY...

Don't fear change. This country was brown before - and it changed. The 'illegals' then come on the Mayflower - they and their descendants changed our country. We are always changing - now we are becoming brown again - nothing is wrong with that. Educate everyone that lives in California and the state will do well. Do not educate everyone and our society can not do well.

Because our country has always had immigration makes us more dynamic and more competitive. It is the essence of the American way - and why I am confident about our future as a people.

Yeah but when it was brown before, they had no written language, hadn't discovered the wheel, and had not learned much about farming or the domestication of animals. In other words, they don't have the collective IQ to creatively function in modern civilization. Sure they can drive a pickup, but they will never be able to write the software for the navigation system. Take a look at the very short list of Nobel prizes awarded to latinos in the sciences. Take a look at the last hit movie written and produced by Latinos. Witness their extremely lame contribution to popular music. I don't think you'll be seeing a mexican do much in the olympics anytime soon. Not likely to be starting on any basketball or football team very often, but they are only second to blacks in how often they are incarcerated.

We aren't dealing with a bright crew here, and going by the fact that the majority of them drop out of high school by 11th grade, and their women's lack of ability to keep their knees together before they reach the age of 21 means they still enjoy the subjugation of women, I'd say handing the baton back to the indians/latinos will not be a step up on the ladder of mankind.

The fact that too many of you all run here like sheep with their asses on fire, also portends well on how well they'll stick it out here in America, if the going ever gets too rough for them.

Say whatever you want, but Latinos aren't the peers of whites. Never have been, never will be. Come back to see us after you get the first Mexican to the moon. Maybe you can speed up the process if you tell your Mexican's that a Home Depot is opening up there soon.

You can't blame the voters, you have to blame the politicians and radical judges who don't support prop that are passed by the voters to stop illegal immigration. For example. Prop 187, won overwhelming by the voters, yet politicians were to spineless to support it, and radical judges from the 9th Circus Court of Appeals, ruled it unconsitutional.

Nothing can be done to restore California to American standards.

Join the thousands of good, decent California citizens who refugeed back to a proud American States if you can. Your children will thank you for it.

Otherwise, your children face a future as nothing more than tax slaves funding the relentlessly unpatriotic State Democratic Party Dictatorship and their Union Puppetmasters.

Every ignorant thing people believe about Latinos was also expressed about the Irish, the Polish, the Italians, the Germans, the Jews, etc.... The country will change that is inevitable. If we are a competitive society and a humane society - that will depend on how we deal with our fears and ignorance. However, I remain confident that the next generation, despite the challenges and outdated ideas we impose on them, will find a way to recast themselves and our country towards the future. Stop being afraid - it is un-American!

We have to embrace things as they are no matter how much it scares us. America seems to be embracing Obama's Open Borders Doctrine so other States may become as pitiful as California.

Every one always said that America could ONLY be destroyed from Within. Now we are there. Very sad times ahead.

I mean the glbal montary power doesn't believe in universals like "we the people", or "in order to form a more perfect union .......". They believe all ideas flow from the senses, and they probably enjoy turning things into their opposite by pushing extreme conditions like mass immigration, to "break" universal principles and to keep control.

One big error in your math problem. The former immigrants you mentioned were western europeans, with a solid history of nation building. Most modern Latino societies require welfare loans from us they never have to pay back, or a significant cocaine trade, or they would collapse into violent chaos. This certainly includes Brazil, and Mexico.
Latino countries implicitly don't have the intelligence to run a modern civilization, much less improve upon it. That's why, you may notice, a majority of Latinos drop out of high school.
Who's going to build your cities? Who's going to write code for your new phone? Who's going to build your buildings? Who's going to maintain them?
Now you can go back to writing your senseless drivel...

The uniqueness of our founding is it provided power to the common man - everybody. All before in history, and today, the few rule the many. So, after the massive immigration from 1880, what did the US do? We allied with the opposite in makeup, and my thinking is this mass immigration was a/the major cause in the rethinking of our identity.
