You think we are having trouble with immigration here in America, it is nothing in comparison to the problems they are having in Rome and other large Cities in Italy. Almost a million immigrants who are poor and lack a high school degree- have flooded into Italy in the last year. They have 1/4 our population so a million is alot of immigrants. Many are from Romania, many are Gypsies. Most of the crime committed in Italy is from these Romanians.

See the attached

Italy to deport 100 Romanians after robbery - Telegraph

All joking aside:

Another wealthy First World country having an illegal immigrant problem is Spain of all places-------between the Africans and the New World Latinos.

OTOH: Spaniards apparently like Italians and Romanians heading their way------they assimilate quite nicely allegedly.

Romania is a very poor and exceedingly corrupt country. It joined the European Union in January 2007 but as far as I know the other member nations are restricting its citizens (and those from Bulgaria, which also joined in 01/07) from migrating to their countries for work.

The situation in Romania is desperate; probably worse than Mexico. However, since Romania has joined the EU it will be eligible for billions in subsidies and handouts. It's worse than what Eire was 20-30 years ago, but with all the extra help it may catch up someday.

The "problem gypsies" in Romania are almost always Romany and usually born in Romania.

I visited Romania back in 1973 with my family; the enclave named 'Transylvania' AKA Dracula's hometown

All joking aside; the above area has a large ethnic 'Hungarian' minority ( am 1/2 Hungarian).

Talk about one poverty stricken dump------envision a cross between a poor Mexican village and stereotypical Appalachia in the worst way.

So; I can understand why so many Romanians come across as 'inbred losers'.

Add in racism against the Gypsies AKA Roma (different from 'regular' Romanian) due to many of them having dark skin and there you have the 'perfect storm' brewing.

Gypsies are actually of East Indian heritage so they are essentially Mestizos------very similar in appearance to brunet Latinos if anything although here in the USA they are 'Anglo', legally speaking.

I don't believe that illegal should speak English. I believe that illegals shouldn't be here at all! However, I believe that the US should adopt English as the official language. Big difference.....
