Who cares?

You couldn't even boycott all the businesses that employ illegals.

I hate to burst your bubble, but the anti-illegal immigration population is plenty big. Don't let the smooth taste fool you. However, we have bigger fish to fry.

It would be financially stupid to stop Spanish-language advertisement and media just to make a point.
Um . . you're kidding right? Thousands of visa holding foreigners from all over the world enter the US daily, some as tourists, some as workers and others in the hopes of legally obtaining citizenship. The majority of those who enter the US legally have some knowledge of the English language and some come here fully versed in the English language because not only are they educated, but unlike the illegals from South of the border, they are also respectful of America, its language and its culture.

The only reason the US has all but become a dual language nation (of spanish and English) is because during the planning stages of their duplicity in this invasion, corporate America had the foresight to devise the plan of gradually instituting Spanish into the customer service prompts of American Businesses. They had already decided that the easiest and most accessible majority of illiterate peasants to target would be the 3rd grade illiterates from south of the border who would come by the millions and accept any wage they offered. Even the lowest American wage is far better than what they could ever imagine in Mexico.

To claim spanish is being crammed down our throats for any other reason is delusional at best.

Either that or he/she is another one of those illegal alien supporters. Actually, I'm pretty sure he/she is an IA hugger.

I hadn't considered that strategy. It's definitely food for thought....part of the master plan for the NAU.

Are you inferring that I am a liar?

As you well know; I am anti illegal immigration---------legal immigrants are welcome.

You are truly becoming desperate when you have to resort to bald faced lies.
