I live partially in San Antonio which has a large number of Mexican nationals. Their culture does not value silence or talking in a normal voice. At many public places, they speak very loudly and never cease talking. They don't believe in disciplining their whiny kids either. I hate the idea of more of these grackles descending into our country.

LOL..that's their way my friend.

I just had a bunch of workers here all week working on the siding.
Loud music and loud talk. That's just the way they are.
It's their culture.

I'm now basking in the silence as they have cleaned up and left.

LOL! You just described most Americans I've seen on vacation in Europe. I'd say they are acclimating very nicely.

I don't know if we should be throwing stones about loud people.

Older people tend to be quieter and value quiet more than the young. But, let's blame all loud people on Hispanics

Actually, it's Press 1 for English, 2 for Spanish. It's always like that. Nice try, though

EVERY nationality has their loud and annoying population, even the British. As an expat in a country with many Brits, many a dinner or lunch had been ruined sitting next to Brits who had boisterous conversations and loud laughter. The constant high cackling laughter was like chalk on a board.

Things change or didn't you know that? How long has it been "2 for Spanish"? Decades?? Since the 80s? How long has it been that an ATM machine gives you 3 to 5 choices of language? The past 2 decades? No, it hasn't "always been like that". Maybe you just aren't old enough to know better.

Or, maybe, I don't live in a major metropolitan area like you do?

It started with Executive Order 13166 to provide services for LEPs (Limited English Proficient)
People who say it's always been like that are probably too young to remember when it wasn't.
My son for example has always known "Press 1 for English". My son has always known checkpoint charlie at airports.
When you've never known anything different then you tend to think "well that's the way it's always been".

And states and cities are now moving beyond the typical English/Spanish and providing up to 6-7 different language options.

There are over 200+ recognized languages.
Imagine when phones support all ?
