More hyperbolic bullcrap from World Nut Daily.
Our immigrants assimilate and integrate, they have jobs, and they move up the economic ladder. Every 2nd generation immigrant speaks and reads English. The Tancredo freaks will deny such and talk about Aztlan, but the number of Hispanics who takes the Aztlan nonsense seriously is near zero.
Not to mention that there are like half a dozen major Hispanic groups with different cultures who don't always see eye to eye.
Agree...the vast majority of immigrants want a better life for their children, and they know they must assimilate to achieve that.
I think that the vast majority of the Muslim community in the US feel likewise. If I'm wrong, then I would strongly advise anyone interested in fomenting a rebellion these three simple words:
REMEMBER THE ALAMO!
From my 20+ years in Texas, I have learned how seriously the average Texan takes these words. Bin Laden and his cronies wouldn't last five minutes.
"but the number of Hispanics who takes the Aztlan nonsense seriously is near zero."
I take it you haven't been to a university campus recently.
"The Tancredo freaks will deny such and talk about Aztlan, but the number of Hispanics who takes the Aztlan nonsense seriously is near zero."
Forgot to indicate sarcasm.
Astute comment. From personal experience I can add that France and Germany are much less tolerant towards immigrants and do not integrate with them socially, linguistically or in the workplace. The main problem is intolerant Europeans (even towards other Europeans) but it is exacerbated by the socialism and multiculturism that the politicians put out. The socialism is real but the multicultural is lip service and cultural understanding and acceptance is very low on both sides.
No, every 2nd generation immigrant does not speak English. Many refuse. And that old worn out Tancredoite blather? It seems you sound like what Bill Clinton said yesterday. Does that make you a Clintonite? I suggest you check out the Aztlan movement if you erroneously believe their members are near zero.
What is a Colonia? Texas Secretary of State's Definition: The term "colonia," in Spanish means a community or neighborhood. The Office of the Secretary of State defines a "colonia" as a residential area along the Texas-Mexico border that may lack some of the most basic living necessities, such as potable water and sewer systems, electricity, paved roads, and safe and sanitary housing. n recent years the Texas-Mexico border region has experienced an explosion of growth in population and industrial activity. Among the border states, Texas has the largest number of colonias approximately 1,800 communities, with more than 500,000 residents. Sixty-five percent of all residents, and 85% of residents under the age of 18, were born in the United States. (aka Anchor babies) These Americans live in extreme poverty and often are unaware of the services that the United States and Texas can provide for them. Ninety-eight percent of the residents are Hispanic and speak little or no English. (see photos - http://www-apps.niehs.nih.gov/outreach-education/News/spotarch/spot0503.cfm)
