Demographic change, however, is not a force that is easy to halt — and as American leaders and policymakers grapple with the country’s real challenges and political trajectory, it’s the actual face of Future America they’ll need to deal with, not an imagined one. It might sound unknowable, a kind of crystal-ball exercise with numbers, but in many ways the picture is already becoming clear. The big trend lines in our population are powerful and hard to budge. The next official snapshot will arrive in the form of the 2020 Census, which experts project will show an America becoming slightly less white and more diverse: white Americans will likely make up 2 percent less of the population than they did in 2015, while Hispanic Americans will make up 1.5 percent more. Asian Americans, foreign-born Americans, and those who identify as multiracial will all make up a larger share of the country, while the black population will hold steady.

What happens after that? We decided to find out, sketching a picture of the nation by talking to a range of demographers who specialize in tracking and analyzing American population shifts. They are experts on race, immigration, aging, changing family structures and urban planning, along with how all these factors affect electoral politics. They emphasized that demographics aren't destiny. No political party can count on perpetual support from any particular demographic group. But the big changes they study will shape the issues we'll be debating for decades to come. By examining their research, it’s possible to envision the potential America of 2050 right now.

That nation will have gone through two big shifts: It will likely be browner and more polyglot than the America of 2016, and it will also be much older. Though those two trends both pose major policy challenges, they’re also interlinked; as the country ages, it will depend on the productivity of a shrinking number of young people to support its retired and elderly population, and those young people will be much less white.

America: This Is Your Future
Census projections show that by the census of 2050, the United States will no longer have a clear white majority—at least as we define “white” today. Fifty-three percent of the population will be multiracial or nonwhite, compared with less than 40 percent currently. Because the growth of the nonwhite population is driven more by fertility than by immigration, researchers believe this racial shift will occur even if the federal government enacts new immigration restrictions. “If you reduced new immigration to zero, you’d still see growth in immigrant communities, more so than in white, native-born communities,” said Randy Capps, director of research for U.S. programs at the Migration Policy Institute. “Immigrants just have more children and have them younger.”


Most of these new Americans will have roots in Latin America, Asia and Africa. Although the Trump administration is setting itself up to crack down on undocumented immigration, anti-immigrant sentiment tends not to depress legal immigration—as long as jobs remain available. Research from states that passed recent laws targeting undocumented people, like Arizona and Georgia, finds the laws had no significant real-world effect on the number of immigrants living in a state. (It’s possible Trump could go after legal immigration as well, by reducing the number of visas granted to workers with special skills and to those with family members already living in the United States. But that would create a fight with the business community, which relies on access to legal immigrant labor at all levels.)

Alongside these ethnic and racial changes, the growth in the population over 85, those most likely to be ill or disabled, will be especially stark. Currently, there are approximately 33 working adults for each American 85 and up; by 2050, that ratio will fall to 13 workers per American over 85.

Young angry brown people and old angry white people.. do you see where this is going?..and i say good

Give them southern California and build a wall around it.
You realize that California, along with the rest of the Southwest was Mexican territory stolen in 1848. Maybe, like the Israelis, you guys bit off more than you could chew if you don't like hearing so much Spanish spoken at the local supermarket.

Bull. The Republic of Texas was formed in rebellion and ceded from Mexico, independent of US actions. The rebellion consisted of American emigrants and Tejanos. It was Santa Ana's refusal to acknowledge the independence of Texas and his arrogance of sending Mexican troops to Texas which subsequently attacked an American peacekeeping mission sent to the disputed area. Mexico started the Mexico-American War, not the other way around.

The Sovereignty of the American Southwest along had been in limbo since 1809 when the the Spanish monarchy was imprisoned by Napoleon. The Spanish territories in the Americas were separate colonies, NOT one giant colony named Mexico. California for example was the Spanish Colony of Los Californios. Mexico and history revisionists just want to imagine anything valuable now and not a shithole was once Mexico. Look at the map below, why are Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, etc not also claimed by these revisionists? Only because certain stupid people in California buy into the myth that this state was once Mexico. When California became official US territory, the largest population segment were Native-Americans. As far as I know, none of them are Aztecs or Mayans.



American troops already had missions and bases in California because both Mexico and US had laid claims. When the war began the Mexican troops fled out of California faster than the Iraqis out of Kuwait. The resistance was fought by Californios WITHOUT help from Mexico. Once the Californios were assured that they weren't going to lose their ranches, they decided being Americans were the way to go.

Also, the US forgave a lot of Mexican debt and gave them a ton of money in addition. 1948 was the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo when the border became official.
