    "But if only 48 percent of third-generation Hispanic adults describe themselves as Americans first and Peruvians or Mexicans or Cubans second, can anyone say that assimilation is workin well for Hispanic immigrants? That glass is clearly not half full. Shouldn’t we expect that third-generation number to be closer to 90 percent?"

    Remember to Press one for English and two for Spanish.

    Give it a couple generations.

    The No.1 issue that Hispanic voters care about is education.

    Winning the Hispanic vote in 2012 | Campaigns & Elections

    Democrats will win on this issue.

    So you think the Democrats are going to win hispanic votes by their continued support for failed educational policies that create the inner city educational system?

    It's already been 3 or 4 generations and they still aren't embracing their host country. The children have been attending school, but there seems more of a concern with finding Spanish speaking teachers to teach them in their native language than teaching the students how to speak English. This is what happens when illegals sneak in and have kids. They don't go through the usual process, which means learning English. I would guess they can learn that in their home country since many in those countries speak English. They just don't want to, I guess. And we shouldn't always be the ones who make the effort to communicate.

    Hispanics weren't assimilated. We wouldn't have instructions for simple tools in english and spanish or directions to go to the freaking can in spanish if they assimilated. They are just here.

    I'm willing to bet the vast majority of people of Spanish descent born in the US speak English...

    HUH?

    I guess Thomas Jefferson was only kidding when he stated that we have the right to PURSUE HAPPINESS - now we have another requirement "embrace the host country" whatever the fuck that means .

    And the post was written by someone who claims that socialism is a failure...who would have thunketh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No. Im think we are going to win by restoring control to the local government and the individuals.

    I think we will win when people understand that they have to educate themselves. Others cant do it for them.
