Why were the Amish never told to leave their culture at the door?

The immigration law created a labor shortage...exactly what people on this board said would not happen.
Eliminate welfare incentives for single mothers , require drug/alcohol testing for welfare and you will see those gaming the system FORCED to work and pay their way instead of leahing off society.

Granted there are those that are truly in need of help, the others with iPhones, flat screens and every other gadget around would have to work instead of being paid to be lazy and worthless.

So quietly not assimilating is alright? No I don't get it. It's either you want full assimilation or you don't.

Right now it seems only white cultural differences are approved.

The Amish might look weird to outsiders but they're non confrontational. Americans of Hispanic ancestry and LEGAL immigrants with accents are really not a problem for most Americans.

Full assimilation doesn't occur over night. European immigration has leveled off and wasn't as steady over the years( especially during WW1 and WW2). Therefore assimilation was quicker than with other more recent groups that are still streaming in.

Also some groups have been more vocal in demanding special treatment and are being catered to ( wrongly so at that).

Unfortunately alot of the more recent illegal immigration has been from lower and less educated of Latin America and other places. If it was from the middle or upperclasses it wouldn't be as problematic.

Without immigration laws being vigorously enforced and immigrants being screened we are getting alot of undesirables and problems here.

When you have people marching, protesting and demanding things when they have no right to be here it shows that they don't want to assimilate and want to be catered to in their own language with special treatment which they don't deserve.

Criminal behaviour that is rewarded will only be repeated as the Amnesty programs of the past have proven.

Their culture was compatable to ours and they live in their own communities? They didn't settle in Alabama either.

Uh; not all "white cultural differences" are Ok. Us "Irish" people had the real bad rep of being drunks and so on. That don't work real good in 2012. Another "white" culture: Hispanics; they have the rep of NOT doing well in the US tho illegal aliens from Mexico and LatAm are most of the problem.

Somali people: IF their "Muslim" ways clash with US law and customs, they better expect push back.

The Amish don't try to impose their culture on the rest of us. They don't live on taxpayer funded social services, take our jobs, educate their K=12 children on the taxpayer's dime, or demand special priveleges from the government. How many Amish are incarcerated, costing us millions of dollars evey year? When was the last time they trashed an American flag? As a bonus, we dom't have to 'press1' for Amish.

Even you should be able to see the difference between the Amaish and illegal aliens.
