That is being ignorant. It is complete lack of respect for this country and its people.

And now they expect us to cater to them?! Give me a break.

They are ignorant and lazy. Plain and simple.

I can't get a higher paying job because I don't speak the language. I speak 3 languages but don't speak the language most illegal aliens speak....SPANISH. What kind of BS is that?

Bilingual nowadays is English/Spanish.

Why? Because they refuse to learn English. It is bad enough they come here illegally they now demand that we bend over and backwards for them.
All good points. No one is allotted the so-called freedom of jumping our borders. Freedom in this country is for those who are citizens and those who come here legally, not illegal aliens.

I totally agree with your remarks about how the Spanish language is being forced on us via illegal immigration also. Some people just can't think rationally and their agendas trump common sense and fairness.

I wouldn't even go VISIT another country until I learned the basics about their customs and language.

There is NO excuse to have lived here for more than two years and still be unable to speak basic english. There is nothing wrong with maintaining ones original language, but for God's sake, at least make an attempt to learn the language of the country you are mooching off of!

They seem to have no issues with navigating our welfare system. If they put just a tenth of that same effort into learning the language, imagine the possibilities!

Choices have everything to do with freedom. What are you talking about?

Not everyone who fights, fights for freedom.

Same BS? How is it that I can have 8 years of experience in retail but when I go to an interview I am told "Oh, but we need someone who can speak Spanish".
Because they need someone who can speak Spanish? Seems simple enough.

And you are not even American.
Uh, yes I am.

It doesn't 'screw' anyone out of a job.

It gives a job to the person with the skills needed to do business.

Oh yes it does! Employers are requiring bi-lingual Spanish speakers now to communicate with illegal alien customers. That would mean that mono-English speaking Americans are being discriminated against in hiring practices. A foreign langauge is not a tech skill. It is the hands on experience for a particular job that is. We aren't talking about doing business with a foreign country or working in the travel industry.

English is the language of this country, not Spanish.
