"U.S. population growth tilts toward Asians" - USA Today. 06/26/2014.

Slowing immigration and birth rates among Hispanics are shifting population growth in the U.S. toward Asian immigrants, according to the latest Census data. William Frey says Hispanic immigration has been slowed by the recession's impact on jobs in construction and service and by stricter border enforcement. But in general, says Frey, "the aging of the white population means that growth in the population will be minorities."
