Immigrants are not helped - indeed, they are hindered - economically and socially by those who pander to them politically, including that crazy Congressman now proposing federal subsidies for English language training of immigrants for SEVEN years because less time is insufficient! My grandparents learned English and passed citizanship exams IN ENGLISH in just 5 years with no govt assistance at all. And American international schools abroad have students of various mother tongues up and running in English in 1 or 2 semesters. English is absolutely required for immigrants to learn what made the US that which attracted them or their parents to come here and why THAT AMERICA must be preserved, not "fundamentally transformed" into what they or their parents fled. They, as we, should ALSO learn that no cohesive society, ancient or modern, has long survived massive immigration of ethnically different people as defined by language and/or religion. It is naive to believe otherwise.

I'm tired of Spanish being force down our throats if anybody needs to learn a language it should be the Mexicans or anyone else who don't speak English. This is our country and our language is English. Our American kids shouldn't have to learn Spanish. This crap needs to stop now.
