21. Large Latino population?

The population is under 600! Yes, demographically the residents are mostly Latino, as is the case with most towns close to the border.

The thing is, radioactive or not, toxic waste does have to be put somewhere. Generally they look for places that are sparsely populated, but accessable by highway and rail. Sierra Blanca meets that criteria and was already a dump site for NY's sludge from wastewater treatment from 1992 to 2002. So the question is, do you continue to use a place that has already accepted toxic waste, or do you find a brand new pristine area to foul up?

I realize there's a lot of NIMBY around the country, but waste does have to go somewhere.
