It's not though. And economists don't use this as much as you think.

Its easy to understand why ilegals, as well as legal imigrants do not melt into society, they come to this country , go toward there own comunitys and tend to stay there, thus speaking there native language, customs, etc and thus tend to vote as the herd does , there should be a law that the [legals] children have to learn english to break this cycle, also [LEGAL IMIGRANTS] coming into this country should have to SPEAK ENGLISH as a qualification in order to enter this country, if not again the american people have to carry yet another load , to try to transform them into a english speaking citizen, and if they are absorbed into there own cultural comunity then they have no interest in learning about there new country.
