(National Sentinel) Sad: Despite portrayals by the “mainstream media” that Hispanic migrants currently huddling along the U.S.-Mexico border in Tijuana are being put in ‘danger’ by Border Patrol agents, their chances of survival are far better than Hispanics born in the U.S.

That’s because being born Hispanic in the U.S. is in and of itself increasingly difficult.

According to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of Hispanic babies aborted each year in the U.S. far exceeds the estimated 7,000-10,000 along the border near California.

According to the CDC report, which was released on Friday, “Abortion Surveillance-United States, 2015,” women of Hispanic ethnicity had 72,056 abortions in 2015 in the 31 reporting states and the District of Columbia.

The Washington Post  has reported that “an estimated 7,000 to 10,000 Central Americans are currently en route through Mexico traveling in ‘caravan’ groups.” According to The New York Times, “Officials estimate that the number could reach more than 10,000.”

CDC data indicate that 17.5 percent of all women who had abortions in the United States that were reported to the agency in 2015 were of Hispanic ethnicity. Also, the report noted, “abortion rates and ratios remained 1.5 and 1.3 times higher for Hispanic compared with non-Hispanic white women,” said the agency.

So clearly, if Hispanic lives are being endangered anywhere at the moment, it’s not along the U.S. border: It’s in the households of Hispanic women already living in the United States.

The worse offender (no surprise) was New York City; 17,391 Hispanic babies were aborted there in 2015.

Not all states report data because reporting is voluntary. So that means the number of Hispanic abortions is very likely much higher.

The 19 states that didn’t report their abortion figures were California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
