A good majority of immigrants speak English, period. Who cares if half of them have the ability to speak another language as well?
It's fine if you don't care. But many others feel the opposite and that is not going to change.

I already posted on link, and the other one is clearly available from Pew Research, unlike the anti-immigration people, I have been citing sources.

I frankly don't give a crap. Get over it. Unless you COMPLETELY do not believe in freedom, it is none of your business.

If they could get away with doing it with open borders, they would be doing it now. Violent thugs aren't afraid to cross the border illegally.

I do not think so.

People here have guns and will protect themselves.

Why are you so hostile? It doesn't matter what you or I think, but don't for a moment think you can tell me its none of my business. If you aren't willing to discuss this civilly YOU are the one who has the problem.

Not hostile, I just don't give a crap when people are offended by things that are not their business, get over it.

A private conversation between individuals that doesn't involve you is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS, even if you overhear it.

I think bigots, who get offended by hearing Spanish being spoken when it has nothing to do with them, have the problem.

It's best to put Xander on ignore. Not only is he hateful and hostile, he acts like he is superior and knows everything. For someone who claims to have an economics degree from an ivy league school, he is very close-minded and refuses to learn.

You do not need a degree at all to be successful.....I did just fine by barely making it out of HS.

His degree means nothing to me......and IMO....not much to the other posters.
