    I think I can safely call myself truly moderate on this issue. I STRONGLY feel that English is THE language of this country, and that all persons who want to live here should have to learn it. By the same token, this country has ALWAYS had open borders, and has ALWAYS had problems because of it. Just go back to the major influxes of Irish, and Italian immigrants, and you can see that there were public outcries against them. Likewise the influxes of Asian immigrants. It's something we've always dealt with, but it's always made us a stronger country in the long run. I do agree that changes need to be made, but I think those changes need to take us back to the policies we had 30-40 years ago(NOT the eugenics part), when assimilation was stressed.

    I'd just like to say that I am definitely Not anti-immigration or a nativist. I'm just against people who come here illegally.

    Fully agreed...but it's like gun control. Lets make the laws that are CURRENTLY on the books work before we write any new ones.

    LMAO! Oh my! I do not think I've ever read a more true suggestion in all of my 27 years.

    That gets lost in the shuffle ALL the time, especially by ME.

    Excellent point, how are we suppose to make new laws when we cant even enforce the ones we have?

    It's depressing. :cry: Someone hold me. Anyone? :goof:

    Awwwww, there there.... it's okay, it's okay....

    LMAO... okay, seriously.

    Yeah, I gotta agree, while I am all for legal immigration, I am unequivocally against illegal immigration.

    Why?

    Because it's illegal!

    And like has been mentioned before in this thread, were all here in the great melting pot, so melt allready for cripes sake!

    IMHO the only other language that all of our regular paperwork should be required to be in in Braile. (I dunno if Braile really counts as another written language.. but you get my point)

    Agreed, but again, lets try to make the existing laws work. If it's ALREADY illegal, how about doing something about it?
