It doesn't matter if it is a good idea or a bad idea. It's going to happen no matter what is done to try and prevent it. If you're inclined to try to prevent it.

Look at Europe and ask yourself if multiculturalism works.

There has to be multicultural acceptance in the sense that we can't see the world as "us" vs. "them", but in a single nation, assimilation is the only way to go. It just doesn't work to have dozens of mini-cultures, none of which have any reason to work together, trying to pretend to be a single nation.
Assimilation seems to work better. Assimilation also does not mean give up your heritage, it means adapt to your new surroundings and respect them.
The problem is to many see it as giving up your heritage.

Multiculturalism breeds discrimination and racism, IMHO.
