That means that in just a few short years, our nation- what's left of it- is going to drastically change. I for one will not learn Spanish just because the Border Patrol won't do it's job.
Just as illegals aren't counted in the census, there are many of us citizens who aren't counted in it either. As far as I know nobody in my family participated in the last one.

Don't put much faith in the census.

Bingo!! That's exactly it. They aren't assimilating, they have no desire to learn or adapt. They refuse to learn the language of this country and are getting quite hostile in insisting that all Americans must learn their ways to accomodate them.

Where I live you see a lot of that attitude. They come here and never learn a word of English, never will. They'll live off welfare handouts rather than make the effort to learn anything new. They're fine with seeing their children drop out of school before high school -- anything but learn English. Today 09:43 PM

I felt like I was in a foreign country when I was visited the predominantly Hispanic cities of Miami, El Paso, and Los Angeles. I felt more culturally at home in Australia than I did in those 3 so-called "American" cities. Atleast in Australia most people on the streets still speak English, lol. I can not say the same for Miami, L.A, and El Paso.

No US immigration trend from one country has lasted for 50 years. I don't think Mexico will be the exception.

Well I used to live in L.A. and the Hispanic there never even made an attempt to learn English, I don't know how the nation is going to be bilingual if the Hispanics are monolingual with no attempt to learn any other language, let alone the de facto national language of the nation they reside. I just kept hearing "the U.S. had no official language" by people that defended those for not learning English, I guess you could use that as an excuse, but I sure wouldn't'.

Guys, please don't feed the trolls. If you find a thread like this, with zero facts and just an emotional statement that's supposed to get you all excited and up in arms, simply ignore it. It will be taken care of rather sooner than later but until it does, just don't give the troll the satisfaction.
