Immigration.

Its no secret I was not born in the United States. I know everyone is making a big deal out of the Immigration movement. Seemingly everyone is worried that 'Spanish will replace English' with the influx of Spanish speaking peoples. I recall debate if English should be the official language of the US; historically, when immigrants from other countries where English was not their first language, they have gathered in various communities like Little Tokyo or Little Italy. The point I am trying to make is that peoples from those various countries settle into portions of cities where their heritage takes precedence.

Although that was just a round-about way of saying: it will take care of itself. It has for the pat 232 years this country has existed.

Although your right, your wrong as well. The whole point of the spanish comeing over is that they are doing it illegally. now you probably don't care, but I bet it puts a sour taste in your parents mouths, seeing how they paid a TON of money to get the citizenship here for you guys. Thats what the big deal is. they cant come over illegally. Its not fair, and its not right. And from what I see, all the spanish are either in Vegas, LA, or Arizona. OH and in the Tri-Cities.
