In my opinion, there is no good reason for illegals to learn English or assimilate into American culture because the only right thing to do with them is send them back home. They need to keep their Spanish (or other) language skills. They should keep preferring their own culture because when they get back home, they should be happy to be there, comfortable amid their people.

Spanish is a white man's language but Hispanics try to claim they're a race. It'd be just as easy to learn and USE English if in the US.

I'd like to know why the jealousy and resentment towards the English language by these ethnocentrics. I'm not jealous or resentful that Spanish is the language of Mexico or any other Latino country. Spain is only one country on the European continent. The first wave of immigrants came from several different countries of that continent and English was the adopted language of this country. Too bad they can't deal with that. And as you said, most Europeans at that time were white includng the Spanish. White power indeed! I thought we were talking language, not race.

Yes, the pro-open borders crowd actually doesn't realize that Spanish is a language from Europe. They don't think it's a "white" language. English is spoken in Barbados -- not exactly a "white" country for those who are trying to race bait on this issue.

Yes, and Spanish is the dominant language in 22 countries on the Western Hemisphere and yet only two countries on it (U.S. and Canada) are English dominant. Why is that objectionable? I sure don't hear them complaining about the Canadians being English dominant, only the USA. Why is that?
