More Latinos than Amish in Lancaster County

There's more carne asada being eaten than shoofly pies and more people named Jose than Jacob in Lancaster, Penn., according to an article in The Patriot-News.

"Increasingly, the flavors of this south-central Pennsylvania region — famous for its mud sales and outlets — bears a marked Latin accent that goes beyond language and cuisine. Latinos have forged a foothold in Lancaster County. In recent years, their population numbers have quietly surpassed that of the Amish. About 45,000 Latinos live in Lancaster County, according to the 2010 census. The census does not track the Amish or plain communities in Lancaster County. But in 2010, the Elizabethtown College center that studies the Amish estimated about 30,000 living in Lancaster County. "
