Somali people: IF their "Muslim" ways clash with US law and customs, they better expect push back.
Push back? From who? You? Lol...get real.

The Somali's can "clash" with you all day long, and you'll do nothing but keep your mouth shut. Let's not get carried away here.

Again, nothing in the piece denotes any wrongdoing by these people, so just leave them the hell alone and worry about yourselves.

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.
So you don't really care about assimilation then.

I would say they have assimilated quite well.

When Amish write letters, they do so largely in English, with some occasional use of German possible. Amish use English when conversing with non-Amish individuals, and when doing business with outsiders. Old Order Mennonites speak Pennsylvania German as well, and Amish and Old Order Mennonites will converse in the language. Amish tend to switch to English when non-Amish enter within earshot, out of respect and to involve the others.

What language do the Amish speak?

The Amish have assimilated in that they live alongside others with no problem. They interact freely with others, and manage to practice their culture and religion without trying to force it on others, nor trying to gain special priveleges from the government. They don't come into a town, set up their own little enclave, and make it clear others aren't welcome. They keep to themselves pretty much, but that doesn't mean they don't assimilate. They aren't newcomers to the country, nor are they illegal aliens.

you have to love the spin of the article.

Centeno, the grocery manager, said she has seen the decline, too. She said poultry companies could have used the money spent to find the refugees to help Hispanics get legal status.

since when is it the duty of american businesses to help hispanics get legal status????

of course, the source is bloomberg---working hard to turn america into a 3rd world country one article at a time.
