Lakewood Township Home To One Of The Largest Mexican Populations In The State

muster zone enforcement pic tlsLike much of the nation, New Jersey has seen its Hispanic population grow at an amazing rate over the last 10 years. This is nothing new in a state with long-established Puerto Rican and Dominican communities. What’s perhaps most surprising about new U.S. Census demographic figures to be released today, though, is the dramatic jump in the state’s Mexican population — which saw its numbers rise by 115,000 people since 2000.

Lakewood has a population of 93,843 with a Hispanic community of 16,042 and Mexican community of 9,661. A change of 242% since the last census, the fastest growing percentage in the State, according to a report. See chart in Star Ledger.

  1. Lakewood also has a largest Orthodox community in the state, as well as BMG, Georgian Court and many other famous institutions.
    Lakewood probably has more schools then any other town in the country

  2. “Large Crime” and “Largest Mexican Population.”

    Liberals still refuse to see the correlation.
    this is why i say liberals are the ignorant ones. Ones who refuse to see, and admit the obvious.

  3. A Somali arrives in Lakewood as a new immigrant to the United States. He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, Thank you Mr. American for letting me in this country, and giving me housing, food stamps, medical care and free education! But the passer-by says You are mistaken, I am Mexican.
    The man goes on and encounters another passer-by. Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America! The person says I no American, I Vietnamese.
    The new arrival walks further, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand and says Thank you for the wonderful America! That person puts up his hand and says I am from Middle East, I am not an American!
    He finally sees a nice lady and asks suspiciously, Are you an American? She says, No, I am from Russia! So he is puzzled, and asks her, “Where are all the Americans”? The Russian lady looks at her watch, shrugs, and says…
    Probably at work!

  4. TO #8
    (as a born & raised Russian) YOUR STORY IS GREAT.
    I served in the American Army, so i certainly dont view myself as a NON-American. Im a very proud, legal US Citizen, and value the wonderful opportunities this country has given me and my family. It saddens me to see Liberals destroying the very core pride that many Americans once had. Liberals have made being a proud American a shameful, ‘racist’ thing.
    and i also see the serious point in your story.
    AMERICA NEED TO STOP SUPPORTING FREE-LOADERS!

  5. if they don’t break any laws, work and pay taxes, let them be a citizen already. Why so stingey with immigration. Many of our relatives were imigrants..what’s the big deal? The system is broke. What’s that? You’re worried about home frown terrorists? OK. Vote for someone who has american security interests as a top agenda. Government works if you let it. We have to elect officials who get it.

  6. Why not let them all become citizens and see what it truly means nowadays to be an American living in New Jersey. Make them pay taxes just like everyone else and maybe we wouldn’t have such a problem with the economy. When you withdrawal from the piggy bank without putting anything in what are you left with???

  7. To those of you who dont Understand Our Government is Run by GREED AND WEALTH IF ITS ANYONE TO BLAME BLAME BOTH PARTIES THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARENT DOING THEIR JOBS . NOW I HAVE SAID THIS TO ALOT OF PEOPLE IF YOU WANT THE ILLEGALS TO HAVE RIGHT PUT THEM IN THE MILITARY AND LET THEM SERVE A 6 YEAR TERM AND THEN OFFER THEM THE RIGHT TO BECOME A US CITIZEN
