Government policy has resulted in the replacement of African-Americans with illegal Hispanic immigrants in the South Los Angeles drug trade

South Los Angeles used to be majority black; now it is majority Hispanic. In 1980, 71% of the population was African-American. According to the 2010 census, that figure has fallen to 31%, while the proportion of Hispanic residents is now 62%. One consequence of this demographic change has been that crimes that were previously committed by blacks are now committed by Latinos.
