I am in South Florida which is still USA ONLY because it hangs on to the rest of USA .

In my case 6 Hispanic ch don't add to the bill .
I agree Hispanic media does NOT want Hispanics to learn English as now a huge market is lost.

I can't fathom a bilingual Hispanic watching the cheap hooter type shows that look like put on in High School but in my case it doesnt add to the bill.

It does in your case I see your point.
Ok, I understand why it doesn't bother you. It angers me because once again I am stuck paying for the pleasures of those who have no right to be in this country.

Legal mean's they had a background check we know who they are ,etc BIG BIG difference.

Having lived in South Florida 2 yrs I must say even the legal immigration has now become a huge scam.
You can buy a residency that allows you to start a business and live here.
Most are simply empty vacant offices with a person who answers phone while the business is located over-seas.

Thus another scam among the endless in South Florida approved by the political Cosa Nostra here and imagine same all over the USA.
I agree. I wish elected officials listened to common folk. While it is nice to have a democracy, the money involved for elections is huge and both parties become obligated to toe the line of corporations that donate. BOTH parties are not doing enough to stop illegals.

There was a guy from India here bragging how his country is the biggest English speaking country in the world -- something I did not know but I guess it's true.

Indians are smart. They're realizing the advantage of having a common language while we are giving that up. A lot of Mexican kids living here learn so little English and drop out so early and the welfare rates here are so high, you just have to wonder how long things can hold out. What's the point in coming here if you have no intention of learning anything of this country but where the welfare office is or just to recreate what you had back home.

I can't imagine living in some foreign country and being so uncurious about it and it's people that I would insist on everything being provided me in my own language.

It is true. There is a large population of Indians, Pakistanis and Iranians in my neighborhood. I have found them to be some of the most intelligent, respectful, friendly, hard working, assimilating, humble immigrants that I have ever known. I feel the same way about Vietnamese immigrants as well.

I know it sounds like I'm gushing but I have a profound respect and love for model immigrants.

Again, its the kids who pick up the language first. Their parents are the ones not picking it up. And really the stereotype with minorities getting all the welfare is untrue. It's the whites who receive the most welfare.

In any foreign country, immigrants should try to assimilate - this should be a high priority. They should also attempt to pass their culture to their kids. Countries like US and Canada -- as opposed to a country in Middle East -- allow you to do this and culturally enrich everyone.

If they were Americans and paying taxes at some point I don't see the problem with this, you?

That's total BS and you know it. Whites have never received more welfare Than the other and never will.

"immigrants should try to assimilate - this should be a high priority."

I agree and that was the case yrs back but not anymore . That is the huge difference in thinking between the old bunch and the new bunch. America is being carved into little town's,cities that will not assimiliate.
There simply is no need to do so.

I live in Doral South Florida statistics say 3 out of 20 adults speaks English.
I think it's bit more than that but certainly way less than half .

It's acceptable -it's the norm and the politician's here wouldn't have it any other way .
