Crazy Growth!

The Dallas Business Journal reported this week that the DFW metro area is the fastest growing in the nation (Lance Murray, "Best of the Blog," page 12; June 1-7, 2012). 

Our area gains a new resident every four minutes and ten seconds

Between July 1, 2010 and the July 1, 2011, the area saw 126,037 new residents move in.  This means that 345.3 persons each day move into the DFW area.

So, what does this reality mean to low-income families?  To the extremely poor?  What could it mean to non-profit organizations?

Why doesn't the Dallas Business Journal, note the number of illegals included in their tally?
