    we are a melting pot, and a patchwork quilt.... I see no reason to make english "official"....if immigrants want to move up and out of their ethnic micro-economies, they will have to learn to speak english, but I hardly see the necessity to cram a language down their throats.

    deport them, we tried amnesty in 1986, thank you ronnie and democratic congress, then it was 3 million illegals, now its 12-20 million

    #1 amnesty has shown not to work for many reasons

    #2 we cannot award criminals, and encourage more criminals to come here by allowing the criminals to have rights they never earned, while millions all over the world have come here legally.

    What is the national language of Switzerland? Why are there enclaves in Paraguay and Uruguay that speak only German? Do you know where Paraguay and Uruguay are?

    Are you this way because you weren't required to have a language credit for your G.E.D.s?

    Just axing.

    I AM
