Really this whole discussion is an insult. You illegal immigrant coddlers have no clue what we have been going through here for decades now.
Public education is a mess. 2/3 of kindergarten class in central san diego schools speak NO english and their parents give zero assistance at home. Employment is completely discriminatory against native english speakers. 60% of public funded births (medi-cal) are to illegal immigrants.
Homelessness amongst US citizens is soaring because we must compete for low cost housing with a tidal wave of humanity who are willing to live with 10 people in a one bedroom apartment. Any service job says bilinguil a plus which means dont bother gringo you wont even be able to talk to the boss he only speaks spanish.
Liberal supporters of sanctuary cities say "they just want a better life for their families and children".
Well so did our parents and theirs and theirs and I think we have a duty not to give it away to an invasion of illegals who only behave with a primal mentality of see something and take it. Rules and laws built this nation. Lack of same made theirs a cesspool.
Why let them turn our world into theirs?
Why, why indeed? It's a disgrace to live in a country where people want to tear down the native culture .

Guess it's fitting since a certain native culture was decimated to establish your ideal American culture.

There was no native culture back then. All of our ancestors migrated here from somewhere else and the strongest survived.

They aren't cultures they are subtle regional differences. They still represent American's identifying culture and they all speak English as their primary language. Not so, with most Hispanics.

"Our country" was also used when those Irish came over, then the Catholics, then the Italians, then the Germans, then the (insert ethnic group that was feared to take over from the more established populations).

You hold no high ground in this thread.

Scroll back to post #397. You LOL'd at the fact that the Spanish-speaking staff in an open kitchen were calling the cashier a w***** in Spanish, not once but three times. Then you said that people have to get used to the idea of hearing Spanish in the BOH---even in open kitchens.

So...you found it okay that these workers did that, even found it amusing

They came here legally with permission of our government. We had no welfare state back then. In contrast far too many Hispanics are coming here illegally without permission and they are costing us over $100 billion a year.


The Germans, Italians, etc. joined the melting pot and learned and spoke English for the most part. In contrast many Hispanics are not. Those other groups were also diversified in culture and language so they assimilated rather than colonizing as many Hispanics are.

Also, that poster has it wrong. I'm not a she but a he. They apparently don't know the difference between a singular "identifying" culture and minority cultures living among us.
