And we know how math works for you guys. Greater than 50% means they're ALL illegal aliens. oh wait...

And we know how math works for you guys. Importing lots of low skilled workers who don't speak English means increased tax revenues for all of us.

Yeah.

"You guys"? Don't lump me into a catagory I don't belong in. Oh, I forgot you pro-illegals like to smear all anti-illegals as being the same regardless of what our individual words say.

If by crazy one, you mean people calling b.s. on a bunch of made up stuff and misrepresented things, which included one poster getting owned with information from his own link, then yes you are right. I suppose we better shut it down. There are like positive things being said towards illegals in here with links to prove they are assimilating. Better close it so you guys can forget this ever took place.

Yes, course studies which are taught throughout the world, in the language of the country in which they reside. These subjects are essential. American students learning Spanish should NOT be essential.

Regarding history, I think we all know that even our American history isn't considered "politically correct" any longer so now it is taught in a way which demonizes us to our non-Native students.

Thanks but I know what they mean.

Now, I acknowledge that they may be assimilating slower than current Asian, blacks, and non-Hispanic whites. It isn't a problem though as I quoted already and I guess will quote again.
Slower than..... They have assimilated slower than anybody in the universe. That's the problem.

Here is an accommodation for students whose native language is Spanish...
