Weren't they always facing uncertainty when the came to a country illegally with no right to work here?

Now they expect to have the same coverage as people who are legally permitted to live there?

Its sad how the ones that break the law get put on a pedestal over people who are living and doing the right thing!

Hm? Let's see. The ones who break the law, you're referring to illegal Latin American immigrants.
And people who are living and doing the right thing, you're referring to yourself.
You're disgruntled that those 'who break the law' get put on a pedestal over those who are 'living and doing the right thing."
You're not reading the writing on the wall, the nation wants 'them' more than it wants 'you!' That's why they get the pedestal, not you!!
No, they get preferential treatment because the loons on the left want their votes. Let them turn America into the same cess pool as Mexico.

You really should start packing your bags and securing your one-way ticket out of here because the trend is toward assimilation, not segregation.
The works to unite the three North American countries economically is already in progress.

If the trend were leaning towards assimilation/integration, we wouldn't be asked to press 1 for English, 2 para espanol. This recent crop of migrants aren't interested in staying here, just mooching as much as they can from the US and sending it back to Mexico. Remittances to Mexico (although less money than in the past) is still responsible for the flow of dollars into Mexico's economy.

I'm you noticed the '2 para Espanol' option. That's how significant we are. And we're becoming more significant as time passes.
We're already the majority in California, and the second largest ethnic/cultural group in the US.
The North American Union is already in the works. Can't you read the writing on the wall?
Illegal immigrants are criminals. Cal. is full of illegals from a country that is lawless and a cess pool. You must be one of them. Congrats for being a criminal and from a cess pool.

Muy interesante, however, I've noticed that even my cousins who have recently moved here from Mexico don't feel the need to learn English, but communicate primarily in Spanish, that's no way to either become part of the country one chooses to move to, or progress. They are limiting themselves in the mistaken impression that English isn't needed in order to succeed, which is a fallacy of monumental proportions, epic fail. When I go to Mexico, I speak Spanish, and I'm only there for a short time each year, what logic is there in coddling people who choose to move to the US and not expect for them to learn the prevalent language? It's an entitlement issue, one that needs to be addressed at the basic level.

Language is a barrier, but it's not necessarily always a bad one.
Black men are constantly trying to "get they fukk on" with Latinas. When they succeed it's because the Latina speaks English and they lure her on.
When the woman speaks only Spanish, or refuses to speak English, the Black man fails instantly!
Language can be a good barrier, it keeps sexual pervs away from our women. No communication means, you don't get any!
If a perv is so inclined to go after a woman, a language barrier will not impede his lurid advances. Believe me.

For once I agree with you! I feel the same way about those who don't want to learn English, it will improve their advancement if they learn English. But, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.
They should learn English because they're in an English speaking nation. But English is not the official language, and we can't force anyone to learn English.
But in reality, I'm starting to appreciate Spanish much more. Speaking the Spanish language is what distinguishes us from the rest of US residents/citizens. And I really want this to continue.
My main concern about groups of people moving to the US and not learning the language isn't that their kids won't grow up speaking it, of course they will and do learn English. My concern (and this is based on personal experience translating at my son's school for years), parents not understanding the limitations they place on themselves by depending on either their kids to translate their school progress, or depending on the kindness of strangers to tell them the truth. Countless times I had to sit with parents who only spoke Spanish and explain to them that the information their kids were giving them was wrong, that their children were either failing classes, or not showing up. These parents obviously moved to this country to provide their children with a better life, but don't take the time to educate themselves, I don't think this is a cultural norm, but rather educational barrier, since educated Mexicans move to the US with required paperwork in order, it's the level 4th grade parents who are easily overwhelmed.

Here's my view on speaking Spanish:
I was talking to a Spanish speaking woman a few years back. She flat out told me that if I hadn't spoken Spanish to her, her and I would be "zero," meaning incompatible.
I was on the BART train in route to San Francisco, two women were sitting directly in front of me. Both looked white as white can be. I Thought they were Gringas. Suddenly, they began to speak Spanish to each other. That was awesome!!!!
On another occasion I was on the bus. My mother called me, so I answered and began to speak in Spanish, a couple of women nearby heard me and immediately looked in my direction. My Spanish caught their attention.
A kingship is immediately felt when someone else speaks Spanish.
I'm sure you meant kinship not kingship, this isn't a monarchy, at least not yet. Obama hasn't been officially crowned, although Pelosi is probably working on that too.

You're right about that, but when they are caught, it's not very good for them. Here in California they're ostracized from the community. They have to register as sex offenders and anyone has access to that database, so they know where they reside.
In jail/prison it's not good for them neither. They become victims.
No one likes sexual pervs, neither society nor the prison population, it can get real bad for them when caught.
Being a woman, I am not very inclined to sympathize with them for the treatment they get in prisons, because they sure had no empathy for the women they violated. They need to be ostracized. I check the database from time to time to see if any live in my neighborhood. So far so good. I actually know a couple of them who were in school with my youngest daughter. One is male and the other female. Both molested children. One is AA and the other is white.
