Two ethnic groups celebrated for their industry, work ethic and family values are the fastest-growing populations in Oklahoma. Among Hispanics, the urban counties aren’t the locales with the fastest rates of growth. This distinction goes instead to certain rural counties, including some in western Oklahoma that have been losing people for years.

As more in the majority encounter fellow Oklahomans of Asian and Hispanic ethnicity, perhaps resistance to pragmatic immigration reform will begin to soften. We hope so.
