Survey: Latinos face access issues

Five facts about N.C. Hispanics and Latinos from the N.C. Governor’s Office for Hispanic/Latino Affairs

  • The groups account for 25 percent of North Carolina’s population increase over the past 20years.
  • They have a projected purchasing power of $346 million.
  • Over 21,000 Hispanic/Latino firms employ 34,000 individuals and have $4.2 billion in business receipts.
  • More of N.C.’s Hispanic/Latino population is born in the U.S., rather than coming from other countries.
  • The median age of the group is 23; the median age of those born in the state is 9 years old.

Pitt County has an opportunity to retain and attract Latino residents if the county focuses on increasing access to community services and increases communication with that population group, local researchers said.


Assistant Professor Misun Hur with East Carolina University’s Geography, Planning and Environment Department, in partnership with the president the Association for Mexicans in N.C., Juvencio Rocha Peralta, shared survey findings from 199 Latino community members Tuesday at the East Carolina Heart Institute.

*am for anyone who wants to

*am for anyone who wants to come here, work, and pay taxes. *am NOT for any who wants to come here, stay the "time", then get on social services and live off the gov. I invite you to leave and go HOME---wherever that is. if you're for that reason, then you are here to be leeches of our generous welfare system. *which speaks to ---why is our welfare system so generous?

Agree with forreal

Immigrants that want to succeed will succeed without going on the dole. Take a look at the Asian refugees that have instilled in their children the need to assimilate into the American culture (without foregoing their own), learning English and taking care of their own vice going on the government dole. Amazing what our country has turned into given the immigrants that came into this country years past and have worked to make this country better.

Mitch

Agree 100%. Come here. Work hard. Become part of our culture. You can still maintain your heritage and traditions while being part of the melting pot...just don't suck the life out of what's in the melting pot. Don't demand that we communicate in your language. You came here...learn our language. That's what our ancestors did. I grew up around a lot of immigrants. They came here, worked hard, embraced America and its culture, observed their own traditions and former culture in their homes and invited others to join them in those celebrations (which we did). It was great as we learned from each other. Nowadays it seem we have to pay to give, give, give and communicate in multiple languages to anyone who wants to come here. Many don't want to be a part of the greater good. They want to keep apart and make us come to them.

so...

"Pitt County has an opportunity to retain and attract Latino residents if the county focuses on increasing access to community services and increases communication with that population group, local researchers said." So we can attract more if we spend more on social services? Why would we want to attract more people to take more from our county? Don't we already have a tough time paying for the services we already give away?
