Don't they have any pride? They need to start taking care of their own.
Their pride only begins or manifests itself the moment they hit the American border and try ever so desperately to be "not American" in America.

Those are the recent immigrants, their children will take on the family name with an American way of doing things.

The recent immigrants better start showing a little RESPECT to their more than generous hosts, don't you think?


And, in this day in age, too many "second generations" cling too hard to their "differentness." I have seen so many pasty white *ss "Hispanics" in my own state trying ever so hard to be "non-white, non-American" that it makes me amused and disgusted all at the same time.

Meanwhile, while we wait for the third or fourth generation to "come around," what good accrues to the nation?
