This writer is a huge moron who should deport himself to some other country -- Mexico sounds like a viable option.

He needs to STFU and understand that all other countries have a language, and we need one, too. And, just in case he's forgotten, that language is ENGLISH.

The reason the German words were not met with as much resistance as the Spanish ones is because the Germans that come here assimilate and learn English. The Spanish speakers, not so much. That makes a big difference. If it doesn't matter to him, he doesn't belong here.

I am not insecure. It is disrespectful to come here and demand to keep your own language and culture. No other group was allowed to do this.

Illegals are not immigrants. This is a mass migration of people from an overpopulated, third world country. Lumping immigrants and illegals together is unfair to those who follow the rules. The government wants to exploit a vulnerable, uneducated class of people. This is wrong. When someone breaks the law, there are consequences.

We should do the same as Mexico. Their laws make sense. What is wrong with our politicians?

If you migrate to their county, you must speak the national language.

There are no special bilingual programs in schools, and no bilingual voting.

All government business must be done in the common national language.

Foreigners do NOT have a right to vote, no matter how long they live there.

Foreigners shall NEVER be permitted to hold any political office.

Foreigners cannot be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, nor other government assistance programs.

Foreigners may invest in the country, but it must be an amount equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.

If foreigners do come and want to buy land, it will be permitted, BUT options will be restricted. You cannot own waterfront property. That is reserved for natural citizens born in their country.

Foreigners may -NOT- protest: NO demonstrations, NO waving of foreign flags, NO political organizing, no badmouthing of its national policies. If you do, you will be sent back to your home country.

If you come to their country illegally, you will be hunted down and sent to jail.

Sound harsh? Insensitive? Inhumane?

Those are the immigration laws of MEXICO!

LMAO Yeah, whatever you say. Your post is proof positive that you "Mexicans" don't have enough brains (all put together, even) to run anything, much less a whole city...forget a whole country.

Keep dreaming, butt munch.

After reading this,I doubt you could run a vacuum cleaner without hurting yourself. Try proof-reading your sentences before you post. I can read around some typos,but this is ridiculous.

The USA CAME to the Southwest...and brought their language, culture and an apartheid system in which Mexicans were 3rd class citizens for generations.

SPANISH (Castilian) is a far more native language in that territory than is English.

I think that the habitually obese, spoiled and immature crybaby Yanks need to get off their immense asses and learn another language besides the truncated English they currently speak.

LMAO! And Paysucks/SinusGravy still lives and still spews forth his nonsensical crap. About up to your neck in it by now, aren't you?

I think Mexicans do well enough all on their own to keep the "third world" title. If they didn't like that, they'd be working to make things better for themselves. Aren't you supposed to be down there helping them? I mean, you are awfully concerned with everything about them.

No matter, the fact remains that NO ONE - not Mexicans, Europeans, Africans, Martians from outer space, or anyone else - is allowed to be in this country illegally.

Go sniff some more gravy and maybe you'll eventually drown in it.

Spanish is not a native language of Mexico. The Spanish they try to hang onto is based on European Spanish. The same way American English is based on old world English . They should be trying to hang onto Nahautl,that is a native language. You would probably have to look long and hard to find a Mexican that can speak it. It will probably fade away in a few years. If someone wants to learn Spanish,this is fine with me. However they shouldn't have to learn it to survive in the United States.
