Surely you can find one, especially one that lost as the defendant.

Not to mention, we know that if you find just one, your opinion will then support that it is rampant nationwide. But even so, you should still be able to provide one.

If you mean "illegal aliens", say "illegal aliens"...
Why do you never step in and say anything when someone refers to illegal aliens as just plain "immigrants" then? Is there a double standard in the working here?

Was there a protest march dedicated to demanding that Americans all learn Spanish or something?
I guess you missed all those posts about businesses "demanding/requiring" we know Spanish to obtain employment with them then?

I guess you don't know the difference between learning the academic necessities and the basic "three" as opposed to being forced to learn another langauge then?

Now they are comparing language usage in an ethnic business (restaurant) to normal everyday American businesses?

Big difference between a company demanding an additional skill and illegals being the ones demanding it. I guess you missed that somewhere along the line.

When they are "demanding/requiring" it to pander to illegal aliens I take offense at it. Most Hispanic-Americans know how to speak English. By the way, I went to a Sears store this morning and all the ads over the intercom were in Spanish. Not one add in English! Then you wonder why we are p*ssed?

L.A. County welfare to children of illegal immigrants grows - Los Angeles Times

Your right out here they pop children out like pop tarts, too many it has got to stop here and now.

We have to stop making excuses at some point for those who are here illegally, otherwise it is an neverending battle.

You say that they DEMAND that you "accommodate" them in their language.

Define both "demand" and "accommodate" in those contexts?

I sure will, when a spanish couple comes into my daughter's place of employment, and demand the employees speak spanish, i think that is enough of a demand don't you! Happens all the time in a department store where my daughter works part time while going to college, arab nationalities do it also, mainly spanish. The husband even went as far as, wanting to know why they did not speak spanish, since the majortiy of the Country, is hispanic. This is what he said to my daughter, so oh please spare me. We don't owe anyone anthying, for anyone wanting to come to a better Country. Speak your language we do not care, but at least have the decency to learn English since you live in this Country.

For gosh sakes, i am teaching myself Italian online and doing a damg good job at it. Yes i am a proud Italian American, no i am An American of Italian Heritage, and proud as the next guy. But don't go around speaking Italian in front of people who do not understand it.

Sono un felce americano e 'lamore mio Patrimono Italiano!
