we are ALL products of immigration,here in Amerika. My Mom's parents came over on the boat and did the Ellis Island thing...they came to Amerika because the streets were paved with gold *IF* you fit it and worked hard! THERE is the major difference between their time and the immigrants of today: Becomming American. My grandparents had to learn English before they could get a drivers license. They had to have a sponsor in order to come over...and most importantly, they WANTED to become American!! They changed the way they dressed, shook hands, ate and nearly everything else in order to appear American...that was how you could succeed here. The immigrants of today are leaving thier 3rd-world sesspools for Amerika in order to provide a better life for their families..and that's great!!! The big problem is, they are turning their new home into the 3rd-world sesspool that they escaped from! They don't change their ways, their language, their dress or their manners. Why do I see signs in Spanish when I go to Lowes or Home Depot? Are there signs printed in English when I go to Mexico? Hell no...why do we cow-tout to these people?
The other thing is this...and once again, Ron Paul is right: Stop the free handouts!!! The law is, as I understand it, when Abdul comes to Amerika, he gets $30k in cash, he gets a zero-interest small business loan from the Fed, and he pays no income taxes for 7 years. So, at the end of the 6th year, he brings over his cousin, Abdul...who also gets his $30k in cash, and loan for zero interest, he buys the 7-11 for $5 and then pays no taxes for the next 7 years...and the cycle repeats forever. STOP THE HANDOUTS!!!
