|Mexican land in 1848|
In 1848 Mexico ceded by treaty what is today most of our southwest.
Seems they want it back, and our current .gov is helping secure that outcome.
We all know how .gov plays with numbers. They claim 300,000 people have crossed the border since April. That probably translates to nearly a million.
My wife and I went to watch fireworks last night. I grew up for quite a while in this neighborhood. DC has always been cosmopolitan, but until the last 10 years, newcomers to America found it prideful to assimilate. They took pride that their children could speak English in school. I know, because 35 years ago I sat in those same classrooms.
Now it is different.
Last night at the fairgrounds where they hosted the fireworks, it was an ESL zone. The local Walmart is the same. ESL = English as a Second Language.
If you think you can help close the border by going to Texas, New Mexico, Arizona or Cali, you are wrong. You are a grain of sand on a beach.
Our southwestern border gets shut down only by the switch in Washington DC.
By the way, that is also how you end Social Security, foreign wars, and GMO.
Anything less is pissing up a rope.
I have added on my top tabs bar a Page dedicated to immigration news. Please don't paste immigration news on other threads - I'm going to stop publishing them - they ruin the flow of threads.
There is no such thing as ESL. It's EOL, English as an optional language, learn it or not, your choice, we'll cater to you.ReplyDelete
:) As always, right on. Actually, I'd give them back the land on the map if Hussein would resign and I could pick the P. Bill Whittle would be right at the top..Delete
When I was stationed in Germany in the seventies, most Germans always refused to communicate in English. You had to learn a modicum of the language if you wanted to order drink and food, rent an apartment or buy a car on the local economy.ReplyDelete
Refusing to communicate except on our terms would go a long way to curbing these invaders. A simple "no entiendo" followed by a blank stare would put the message across that they are not welcome.
that would be the hope, one would think... one of the major problems in this country is the base greed factor - if the individual has the $$$, then language isn't important and unfortunately, neither is their cultural background nor their intention for being in this country in the first place...Delete
