Oh cry me a river, i know some Mexicans who have lived in this Country in Arizona for over 20 yrs and do not speak English, give me a break, that is just ignorant to me sorry, that is how i see it.
Infact they don't owe it to Americans to learn our language, they owe it to themselves, break our laws, commit crimes, but what, you cannot learn a wee bit of English, give me a break.

Hai un problema lo non cosa serve a ya!
Great, they're ignorant. But I'm glad you admitted that they don't owe it to you to learn English.

No it is you that is not understanding a thing here. Even one illegal activity in our Country, by illegals is one too many, because they should not be happening in our Country at all. Go to Mexico and pull some of the same stuff illegals pull in our Country, if you live to tell about it, let me know.

Your untested theory go's completely untestd, because it is wrong?

So should the police officers letting people walk without ticketing or citing them for marijuana violations be fired?

Yeah. We owe it to them to learn Spanish! Because monoligualism is a terrible thing when Americans do it but acceptable and even admirable for illegals.

No one group owes it to another to learn their language, obviously.

So, you donít believe if one relocates to another country, they have an obligation to learn the language? Rather, the host country should accommodate them?

Correct and incorrect, respectively.

If they should not be accommodated by the host country, and they should not feel an obligation to learn the language, then I suppose they will never assimilate. Is that what you endorse?

Does that logically follow?

They benefit from learning the most commonly spoken language.

The most commonly spoken language in the USA is English. Hence, if, as you suggest, they have no obligation whatsoever to learn English, they will not assimilate.
