SALT LAKE CITY -- Births among Utah's young Hispanics rose significantly in 2006.
The state Health Department says 105 of every 1,000 young Hispanic females gave birth that year. That's up from 100 per every 1,000 in 2005. The mothers were ages 15 to 19.
Utah's adolescent health coordinator, Jennifer Mayfield, says it's a "huge" increase.
The state's overall teen-birth rate rose in 2006 for the first time in 10 years. Thirty-one of every 1,000 young females gave birth, up from 29 in 2005.
Utah's rate is below the national figure for young moms, which is 42 per 1,000.

Yes wide open borders, approximately 500,000 legal and illegal immigrants flooding in EVERY MONTH, careless breeding habits on the part of the third world hordes pouring in and carrying new and previously eradicated diseases; straining water, fuel and food resources etc....it all adds up to the perfect storm.
But at least as we see civilization crumble around us (swallowed up in the sea of disease, crime, poverty, violence and ignorance that is congruent with third world peoples), liberals and Christians can think to themselves, 'at least we're not prejudice', before we are ALL, at last, dragged down into civilizational hell...
