“America is not assimilating Hispanics, they are assimilating America.”
Illegals are the issue, not Hispanic immigration, nor Hispanic cultures. It’s been my lifelong observation that by the 2nd and 3rd generations, Mexicans or Costa Ricans or whover are Americanized to the extent that Europeans were Americanized during the waves of immigration at the turn of the 20th century. We still have “Little Italy’s”, Jewish neighborhoods, and Chinatowns and we’ll have ‘Little Mexico’s”. That part is ok, it’s our American heritage.
In point of fact, “Hispanics” have always been part of Southern and Western American culture. New Orleans was once a spanish city, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and California.
That said, we must put 100% stop to illegals, make them apply like everyone else (i.e. enforce our laws). No general amnesty. English and naturalization is a requirement. We should expect that out of everyone who wants to come here.

I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince ,potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have hertofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God. In acknowledgment whereof I have hereunto affixed my signature.
It is the American government that is the villan here.
Well it’s been my lifelong experience as a first generation American of immigrants, that things just are not the same as they used to be! Yes there have always been enclaves of Germans, Italians, Puerto Rican’s, Spaniards,whatever, the one biding agent was that they came here to be Americans, and they pushed their children to assimilate and learn the American Culture. They did not deny their children their heritage, nor should anyone ever deny their heritage, but they did want their children to become Americans!
Now we see things differently, I feel that there are still peoples wanting to come here to be Americans, but I feel
(and have dealt with many as either employer or co worker)the vast majority from our southern border have no intent whatsoever in shifting their allegiance. I am not saying that they are bad people, just the facts as I have experienced them.
