I'm Hispanic-American, i know both languages, what i'm saying is that FOB hispanics NEED to make the effort of atleast learning and understanding ENGLISH, this is AMERICA! not their Homelands!, English is very important if you want to survive in this country, not Spanish!.

As you stated.

And the illegal aliens from SOB are an insult to Americans of 'Hispanic' lineage as well.

Is that the best you could do? I am disapointed ArizonaBear. Stop fighting and give up. Whether you like it or not, the USA will eventually be a billingual nation, where if you don't speak Spanish, you won't get a decent job. Nothing to do with immigrants. It is all about globalization. Who knows, maybe Chinese will also be required. I know, the hairs in the back of your neck must be up......don't be afraid, we won't bite.

I'm getting sick & tired of these hispanics who've been living here for 5-10 years and they don't make the effort of learning atleast 30 freaking words of english! .

if the government doesn't do something quick about this issue, America will turn into a 3rd world country!
What has the ability of speaking a second language has to do with American turning into a 3rd world country? I know of plenty of countries where speaking a second or third language is a an asset, not a burden. Have you been to Europe?

In time; we will become 'bilingual', but that second language will not Spanish. If anything; as the illegal aliens (most of whom are indeed some variety of Hispanic) leave the USA---------Spanish will continue to decline in importance.

Hell: English is growing in importance------------unless a government tries to block it. Quebec comes to mind.

I don't care if people don't want to learn English here, someone has to dig the ditches, empty trash cans and scrub the toilets

Unless you are a diplomat most jobs that don't require English are bottom feeder jobs. Have at it, that won't change for a long, long time.

I agree. Most of those people that do those jobs are immigrants that don't speak English. Unless they need to speak to the toilett, there is no need for them to learn the language.

Did someone forget to inform me that we were annexed into mexico or is this what the future of our country is destined for.So in other words , i need to go back to school to learn somebody elses language even though they are even legal citizens,bull!
Alot of people dont like Sheriff Joe but as far as i am concerned, "Sheriff Joe for President", just do me a favor.When you arrest them dont give medical aid and food and a place to sleep for a few weeks while the citizens pay taxes to supply these things , just ship their butts back as soon as you find them.
I cant get free food , water, medical and a place to sleep.Someone in government needs to stand up and show some balls,they dont belong here.If they want to be citizens, they can do like so many others" apply for the right to be here".
I still say that if they want to be citizens, then they can apply and any male over 18 then serves 2 years in the military to prove they love this country, once their tour is up then they and their immediate family can be legal citizens.But come on , lets make them earn the right to be here, our boys are over there dying while they sneek across our border and live a better life than i do , now you are saying i need to learn spanish.
I dont think so, wake up people of the usa.
It will do you some good to learn another language and culture. By the way their are about five million illegal immigrants and about forty five million legals hispanics. It will do you some good to learn about the culture and history of much of the United States specially if you live in the southwest people that have been here since when this areas belong to the Spanish and then Mexicans. Just like you know of the history of the British colonies.
