"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

No 'Habla Espanola' Here!

Unfortunately streams of "illegal's" cross our southern borders daily. Our politicians, including President Bush, don't seem to care enough to insist our laws be enforced. During WWI my father came to this country as a young and destitute teenagers. With nothing, he went to work at United States Steel and spent over 36 years there before passing away at age 50. During his free time my Dad learned to speak and write English by attending night school. My father passed legally through Ellis Island and committed to all the requirements of citizenship in America. Anyone attempting to enter this country illegally should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Period! Employers hiring illegals are committing felonies and should also be held accountable. No more excuses about jobs American's don't want. The laws are made for everyone, including politicians and ambassadors who fail to pay taxes for housekeepers and nannies. In addition, citizenship into this country should require and demand learning the English language. The educational system, the banking system and others who provide dual language provisions to conduct business or get educated are circumventing learning English. This is wrong and prejudicial. We don't provide dual language accommodations for other non-English speaking immigrants. I’m tired of ATM's and phone menus asking me what language I wish to conduct business in. I am American, I speak English and my immigrant ancestor’s spoke English. What was good for them should hold true today. Quit looking for an easy way out, get with our program. Politicians, quit looking for Hispanic votes by restructuring laws to accommodate your agenda by providing free rides to Hispanic immigrants. Enforcement of our border and immigration laws should be enough to protect the United States from illegal migration into this country, especially from Mexico. An incentive and major motivational factor in attaining the American Dream should be conducting your communication in English.

Thank You for commenting.

My mother was American born but speaks and writes fluent Serbian. She is 86. My father, deceased in 1964 was born in Ohrid, Macedonia on Lake Ohrid, which separates Macedonia from Albania. He spoke Macedonian and English.

Side Note: Your profile is quite impressive. Very Best Wishes to you.
