In the 1960’s while living in Chicago I dated a woman from Mexico who spoke broken English. She grew up speaking Spanish.
She had long straight blonde hair, blue eyes and fair complexion. If some idiot from census classifies her as a non-white minority, he needs a strong dose of brain elixir.
Well, I understand your point. If she came here legally and is a U.S. Citizen, she’s not that much different than you and I, except that her birth loyalty is to another nation. Thus she may be very sympathetic to the plight of people who wish to make excuses for breaking our laws and abusing our citizens.
I actually have less sympathy for those who enable law breaking as a citizen, than I do the actual illegal immigrants. And I don’t have much patience with that at all.
Thank you for the mention. It is strange to think of Mexican citizens like the one you mention, but there are actually many of them.
If she spoke English I would be a lot more inclined to accept her as one of our own. If I went to Mexico, it wouldn’t be six months before I would be fluent in Spanish and speak like a native. IMO, that would be the respectful thing to do.
