girl check your pulse!!! im referencing this article and it talks about immigrants assimilating. it talks about naturalized citizens.

i am talking about immigrants. those who have naturalized. from ARGENTINA. Mexico. Ireland. Eritrea. in california. those who are assimilating and seeking the same thing we all have.

if you are mad that this governement offers visas worldwide or porous borders then take that to your local and nat'l politicians.

your emotional post is misplaced.

this is about immigrants and them sharing the same goals as us.

if you want to talk about illegals or whos demanding what.
save that rant for a more fitting thread.

They are seeking, demanding to step over Americans and get what Americans cannot get--everything for free. Go back through and read the messages of people posting comments and videos of (1) an illegal immigrant mom laying in a hospital bed wondering why Americans are so upset at paying bills for her new baby (for her free car seat, for her free formula, for her free food, for her free home) when other AMERICAN mothers can't get that, (2) the hospital representative talking about how they are spending millions, not thousands, millions giving free medical care to illegals, and last but not least (3) the message from the young man who went to Mexico to help people there and they wanted none of it except for the young man to tell them or help them get into America to get free money, housing.

How can you ask me to respect that. They don't want to be like me. If they did, if they worked their own way, paid their own way, didn't kill more Americans than the war in Iraq (see my prior messages for that link), didn't fly the American flag upside down, or their country's flag over the American flag (see prior videos about that one too), didn't insist on everything, beat up our American reporters during their "peaceful" rallies. . . .

Actually, I'm going to stop there. Don't ask me to accept people who really just want to put their feet on the throats of Americans and take American's children's future. Don't ask me to accept people whose only desire is to ruin my children's lives. Personally, I think you should apologize for even considering asking these questions, and Bianca, if he/she/it is a real person, should apologize to all Americans for her/his/it's utterly riduculous statements about taking the fruit of America. There is no "fruit" of "America." It's American workers killing themselves to provide for their children's future.

You think I should be taking this out on the government and the employers?--don't worry, they're hearing from me too.

You make the mistake of assuming I am not in control. Your support of illegal immigration is misplaced. I await your apology.

How's this for assimilation. It shows that in certain areas they speak zero English. No suprise here.

So true! Now, if we could just hear a few NEGATIVE comments about American citizens, the picture would be complete! How about it....anybody?....

But there are people in this forum who will tell you that the second generation speaks all English and hardly any Spanish, which of course is patently false.

You guys may say something about "well its about LEGAL immigrants, not illegal"
but this post is still making a point.

Because you guys have frequenly(and recently) said that Hispanics(not illegals) refuse to adjust to American society.

The One posted an article that counters that, and now people are trying to turn it and , and say "Yeah! LEGAL immigrants!"

Maybe people should give some credit where its due. Hispanic immigrants assimilating, despite so many of you claiming that its not happening.
