Hispanics now largest minority group in Wis.

The Hispanic population more than doubled in the area, since 2000.

The latest figures from the U.S. Census Bureau show that Hispanics are now the largest minority group in the state.

Casa Hispana president Ernesto Gonzalez says they're attracted to northeast Wisconsin because of work on dairy farms, safe communities, and good schools.

Gonzalez says one of the biggest needs that local immigrants have, is a drivers license. He says that would let them get to and from work, safely.

The census bureau found that twice as many Hispanics live in Outagamie, Brown, and Winnebago counties, compared to 2000. The population quadrupled in Calumet County, since then.
