Well, they can choose to speak Spanish or whatever language they want to. It's none of your business what they do. Your "grievances" with lingustics is old and tiresome.

It is our business what people do who are coming here illegally or even legally for that matter. It's long past time to close down open borders to the world.

Cite the claims? It's common knowledge that most illegal aliens are mono-lingual Spanish speakers. I have lived in Calf. for many years and decades ago you hardly ever heard Spanish being spoken even though there were Hispanic-Americans living here. It's only been since the start of the illegal invasion from south of our border that I started hearing Spanish being spoken everywhere I go.

Anything other than that? Fluff.
Right, I'm intolerant of illegal aliens and having to listen to their Spanish babble everywhere. Why wouldn't you be? It's a constant reminder of these law breakers being in our country.

"The number of Spanish speakers in the U.S. has grown rapidly in recent decades, reflecting the arrival of new immigrants from Latin America and growth in the nation’s Hispanic population. Today 34.8 million Hispanics ages 5 and older speak Spanish at home"

https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tan...non-hispanics/

If you think by using the word "immigrants" it isn't being used here to describe illegal aliens then you're not dealing in reality. The majority of them are. They not only speak it at home but out in public also. It's transforming our country from an English speaking nation to a Spanish speaking one gradually in an unlawful and unnatural way.

Patently ridiculous when it comes to a choice of spoken language. Not very familiar with the principle of non-aggression, eh?

We.

Don't.

Open.

Borders.

No, a cite backing up your claim that most Spanish speaking folks in this country are here illegally is what I'm asking for. Your opinion of what is or isn't "well known" is not a compelling argument.

Further, how on Earth could you discern that someone who happens to be speaking Spanish is doing so because it's the only language they know?

You seem to make a LOT of assumptions.

That has nothing to do with the thread topic. Again, the person in question is in the military.

In your small view, you forget, we are in Hawaii. Here you will hear Japanese, Korean, Chinese etc. and all from citizens.

You would just find new reasons to be intolerant.


The world is changing and many are old and scared and do not like change. I understand. The fact that the demographic may change where you are not in the majority is terrifying to you. You don't understand other cultures, food, activities, and don't want to.

But understand, many have no problem with that, and more so in the youths of today. The country will change, but you will probably have passed away by then, so it won't impact you too much.

And it is NOT just changing because of illegral immigrants. What you call the "browning down of American" is occurring from inter racial marriages becoming super common place.

Has zero to do with immigration status. The airman in question is a US citizen, period. You gonna tell me I can't speak Chinese to my mother?

Again, kindly go have a nativist meltdown.

The world hasn't changed. We have intentional open borders and mass immigration policy. The policy could and should be changed. Americans and their progeny are being dispossessed and replaced in their homeland. Hearing loud, unpleasant foreign languages is just one symptom of open borders.
