Then it's time for us to learn their languages. Just wait - that will be a new requirement. The argument will be that Spanish is a much easier language than English.

When my family lived in Germany because Dad was on sabbatical leave, my parents put us in German schools. We learned to speak German within a matter of months. In fact, my five-year-old brother became so fluent that English became his second language! And German is not easy. But then, my parents drilled into our heads that we were GUESTS and should behave accordingly and respect our host country's culture.

From what I have read some schools are making learning Spanish mandatory.

Another town in California is trying stop the importation of these illegal aliens that are crossing into Texas.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
MURRIETA, Calif. -- A California mayor urged residents on Monday to fight a plan to fly migrant families from Texas for processing at a border patrol facility in his city as police start a hotline and prepare to field questions about the transfers.

ALL of the US should be "NIMBY" to illegal aliens.

And the Fed says none of them have criminal records.
If they have no ID then how is the Fed checking their records ?
If you were a criminal would you give your correct name to them ?

These mayors aren't dumb. The Feds will ship them there, process them, hold them for a while and then give them "permisos" and release them into the community.

"Report to ICE in 15 days" is what these permisos are.
And the Border Patrol union guy (who can talk to the press) said 95% of them never show up.
