[QUOTE=HonestJoe;1062891693]My point was that there does appear to be people posting on this thread who assumed that because the Americans singing in the advert did so in languages other than English, they must be incapable of speaking English.[quote]
What is negative?No one suggested they were. Types of immigration were suggested as putting negative pressures on people and societies
That is true, but immigrants will not flood here if there are no jobs Immigration crack downs have caused labor shortages in some southern states.You're appealing to tradition here. Economic situations change. We no longer have a need for a bunch of immigrants to fill manufacturing jobs
Some of the things that have been mentioned in this thread are higher poverty rates than in the past, lower education rates, more difficulty in assimilatingWhat is negative?
In what sectors?That is true, but immigrants will not flood here if there are no jobs Immigration crack downs have caused labor shortages in some southern states.
Hey why did you leave the ones that do:
And just one-in-five (21%) say they use the term “American” most often to describe their identity. On these two measures, U.S.-born Hispanics (who now make up 48% of Hispanic adults in the country) express a stronger sense of affinity with other Americans and America than do immigrant Hispanics.The survey finds that, regardless of where they were born, large majorities of Latinos say that life in the U.S. is better than in their family’s country of origin. Also, nearly nine-in-ten (87%) say it is important for immigrant Hispanics to learn English in order to succeed in the U.S.
So the majority, according to your source, say it's very important to learn English and the majority of US born Hispanics do relate to Americans more. What's the problem again?

Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
I think you are just upset people are discussing things you don't like and want to play thread policeimmigrants incapable of speaking English have nothing to do with the Americans who can speak English (better than some "real" Americans) but sung in the advert in other languages. I think it's important to make the distinction clear.
