They didn't have immigration laws and look what happened.

Do you want Americans to end up that way?

If you love a country you embrace the culture & language as well as its people.
Not fight them.

A person either has integrity or doesn't... Most politicians sell theirs to keep the job.

There is a concerted effort. I also post on some Hispanic forums where I debate on illegal immigration.

This is a question that should be directed at Hispanics who think that their lives will somehow be better if they are the majority in the country. However, I don't see the group that has the highest high school dropout rate in the USA and the highest teen birthrate in the USA changing very much just because there are more of them here.

Since I am in the majority why would I need to ask anyone how their life would be better?

Please clarify what you mean by you're in the majority. Do you mean majority minority because Hispanics are not the majority overall in this country.
