This fear of births to uneducated Latins is just nativism.

After one generation in the U.S., the birthrates plummet.

And most Latin countries do not have high birthrates. Some countries in Latin America have lower birthrates than the U.S.

Contrary to stereotype, Mexico does not have a particularly high birthrate. It once did, but it has plummeted in recent years.

The reason that poor Mexican immigrants have a lot of children is because they are poor rural folks. Just like if they moved to Mexico City or Guadalajara, once they are in the U.S., their birthrates plummet.
