Earlier this morning the US Census Bureau made this dramatic announcement:  White births are no longer the majority in the United States.  

The new 2011 census, reveals non-Hispanic whites accounted for 49.6 per cent of all births in the 12-month period that ended last July.

The minorities – Hispanics, Blacks, Asians and those of mixed race – made 50.4 per cent in total, with Hispanics at 26 per cent, blacks 15 per cent, and about 4 per cent Asian. That compares with a 37 per cent ratio in 1990.

Clearly Hispanics...or Latinos are in the lead in population growth and overall demographic increases in American cities and towns throughout the country.  

And in the field of business, finance and economic development, the Latino community has firm footing within industries across the globe.

Joining me today is Marcela Aldaz, one of the leading spokespersons representing ALPFA, the nation's fastest growing Latino business organization in the country.
