They will need it sooner or later. I wouldnt even come close to the Mexican border until something is done. But for NOW they are struggling to come over the border where there are jobs and no taliban-like drug cartels. So they will do anything to motivate the Americans and calling us RACIST is one of their tricks. We as a Nation cant ignore this problem for much longer.
    Oh, I dunno. Our leadership has been doing a bang up job on that score for quite some time now. I see no reason they can't keep ignoring the problem.

    Until someone gets hurt, or killed, because they were working with heavy equipment and couldn't speak the same language.

    Wow...talking about ignorant statements. You do know that the MS13 Gang is exclusively hispanic right? (hell I live in Idaho and even I know that) You know..the gang that he specifically mentioned being just a few blocks from his house?

    MS-13 = Mara Salvatrucha, a large Hispanic gang that is primarily composed of Central American and Mexican immigrants. That's not racism, it's a fact that you can substantiate by doing a simple google search. A couple of years ago, people started calling it the world's most dangerous gang.

    Fwiw, it's much more dangerous in El Salvador than it is in the U.S., but that's not much comfort to the people who have to share a neighborhood with them.

    Although its smart business in MY area, I will refuse to learn Spanish. This State and this Nation needs to get stronger illegal immigration laws. Period. Again I myself will suffer a bit but I strongly feel Im doing the correct thing. If this continues, I will move to Indiana.

    No, for several reasons. Firstly, the Pakistani population in the UK numbers around a million, out of a population of 68 million. So, a little more than 1% of the population is Pakistani. On the other hand, in the US, Mexicans, Latin Americans and South Americans (Spanish-speakers, in short), number about 50 million, or, 1/6 of your population.

    Secondly, the UK has an official national language -- English. We made the language, we're the primary source of modern changes to the language, and so we've decided to make it our official language.

    The US does NOT have an official language, meaning Spanish is just as valid a language to be used in every day life in the US as English is. Furthermore, as Spanish is projected to overtake English in the US by 2050, I would say learning Spanish is a necessity for an American, whereas learning Urdu would be only minorly useful in the UK.

    Re: More than a million immigrants land U.S. jobs

    I think there's a reverse assimilation going on to a limited extent. When you are immersed in a population of non-English speakers you end up picking up words here and there over the years until you are able to string the words together into semi-intelligilbe sentences. In other words you acquire the ability to make yourself understood by the illegals so that you are able to cope with everyday reality. That's how I learned to speak Spanglish. I think most white people in California have learned some measure of Spanglish.

    America is gone. But Amerika has taken its place. Ultimately, Amerika will become a latin american country with a few white, black and asian pockets if the country remains intact. That being the case, I don't see much reason to keep the country intact.
