Many terms in science are based off Greek or Latin, the latter of which Spanish is derived from.

I think you just picked the first language you could think of to knock on Spanish(why, if you're just against immigration).
Your claims are baseless.
Nope, my claims are spot on and that is why they bother you so much. It has nothing to do with how big the Spanish population is. It has to do with what is necessary for our country.

Yes, and of course her/his reply to me was not based on what I meant at all. What I said was based on facts and not companies who need employess who work in another country.

Then you do not see very much at all because it has been happening in this country all over. I guess that you didn't know about Texas telling certain schools that all teachers and principles they must learn Spanish or lose their jobs. There are many more instances like that one and they happen all over this country and it is wrong. It would help that when you make statemens that you would actually know what you are saying.

By the way, I sure hate to read the word 'assimilate.' That word is responsible for some of the most heartbreaking, terrifying, and brutal chapters of history.
I have morals and would not go to another country just to STEAL what I had no right to. That would be the difference between you and many of us. It has nothing to do with idiocy. It does have to do with having morals and respecting the laws of any country.

BTW, I personally do not care that the word assimilate bothers you. It is a word and it is not responsible for anything. It is a word and nothing more.

Spot on with nothing to back it up.

If you ever did some research you would know what I posted was truth. You apparently would rather live in a La La land and believe only what the MSM tells you or what you mistakenly believe.

Try again:

We are still by far the strongest country in North America. Canada's population is less than that of the state of California. As for Mexico; that nation is a basketcase at best.

As for the putative 'merger'...............remember Manifest Destiny? That the USA would run from Yukon to the Yucatan..........which is growing increasingly plausible as we speak.

Canada is in danger of breaking up courtesy of the childish mentality of Quebec. As for Mexico............suffice to say------------we may have to pick up the pieces of that shattered land once its (possible) civil war is over.

What does offend me is when a bunch of newcomers here whine about 'cultural genocide'---------which is a direct slap at assimilation.

If the USA is such an evil, racist place-----------said ingrates can turn around and head back home

If Mexico has a Civil war it will be interesting to see who stands and fights and who loses spine and tries to flee here. One thing for certain, our boys will be arm to arm on the Southern border to prevent such a mass exodus. 15 million at one time would bankrupt any govt aid possible.
