    I'm glad to see that you're finally talking about that bridge because in the thread that's actually about the bridge, you can't stop talking about Benghazi

    Lol! Did you read the link? It is not that simple. Anyway, none of this negates the fact that in order to become a citizen an immigrant is required to know some English. Right? I mean they could be here for 5 years or more, but if they can't speak or understand any English, they are not going to pass the test.

    Also, abou the visa and work papers, they are also in English.

    Citizenship tests do not necessarily require a knowledge of english and can be given in the immigrants native language

    You talk about how "outsiders" (xeno) are destroying this country, and that makes people afraid (phobia). Then you say it's not xenophobia??? It's textbook, it's exactly what xenophobia is by definition.

    For citizenship, yes. For legal residency, no. It really is that simple. There are millions of legal immigrants in the US right now who aren't required to learn English if they never intend to apply for citizenship. Many never do. They just keep renewing their green card.

    They are overwhelmed by the # of immigrants who sign up for the class even though, according to the xenophobes, they don't want to learn english

    But since you're so eager to protect those immigrants from the risks of not knowing english, I'm sure you support increased funding for the classes.

    Have it your way. Xenophobia then would be a natural result of resentment to overwhelming colonization by another country. It sounds logical to me.

    The word remains a despicable thing for a self serving, cowardly government to call it's own people while it implicitly surrenders to a foreign country invasion without a shot being fired.
