Census data and other sources to develop projections, the core of our argument is that as the cohort of older (65 years and over) Latinos grows in North Carolina, there will be concomitant political shifts. Children who are citizens will eventually become eligible to vote, legislative districts will be transformed, and Hispanic adults will be taking care of a growing elderly population. Although much has been written about Latinos and politics, almost no work has addressed the issue of aging more specifically.

Although at times it can seem like irresistible forces of demography are meeting politically immovable objects, we contend that they are powerful enough that they cannot be legislated away. In other words, policy makers can respond to demographic forces, but cannot eliminate them or wish them away. What does that mean? Although it is slowly coming to an end, the boom years of the 1990s and early 2000s were marked by a “demographic fit,” whereby a youth bulge in Latin America coincided with a youth “dent” in the United States as the population has been growing increasingly older.

Given the demographic reality, however, there was no way to stop the forces underway. Those irresistible forces are literally changing the face of the South. In this chapter, we extend our previous study from the historical and contemporary perspective to consider the future. Over the past two decades, economic growth in the South combined with the demographic fit drove large scale in-migration of relatively young workers and their families, often with children born after the parents’ arrival in the US and who are thus United States citizens.
