They often came together and formed their own ethnic neighborhoods where they could live and interact according to their own culture and in their own language

well, depending on how far back you're talking, they're not getting a pass on anything, because they came here the right way, and became citizens...
really? that's all you've got?

We're all foreigners. When should we have started closing the borders and looking after our own? I guess 1776 cause we had problems then too. Should we kick out the new arrivals? I think Guohau should go. Why are we wasting resources on her when so many Americans of British ancestry are hurting? Let's kick out everyone who immigrated since WWII. They must have brought us down.
What you're missing and what has always been advocated by anyone over the insane amount of illegals here is she went through the process, beginning to end. You should be proud of her, her accomplishment, and her families desire to do things legally. She didn't sneak across our border and become another taxpayer dependent. That is seriously short sighted of you.
America isn't accommodating #. We've never gone to war to help anyone. It's selfish every time. You guys really think we're in the middle East or west Africa out of compassion?
You need to go back to that top 40 college and take a little more history.
Also who the # is forcing you to speak Spanish? I've never heard of any place in America where you MUST speak Spanish. God the short sighted self centered completely disconnected viewpoints just don't stop........ Can't any of you see the big picture? Do you know anything about history? The exact same bs you guys spew happened with every immigrant group. After a generation the kids are as american as apple pie. I have clients who are immigrants and trust me, our corrupt culture sucks in everyone.
You're losing it Travi, the first to go is always the language. lol I had Legal immigrant clients as well they made it, all were wealthy one even walked out of Russia with 50 bucks in his pocket came here 12 years ago. Whats your excuse? He never blamed the US just went to work driving a cab, saved money and put a down on a house, refied bought a business and made a fortune.
Keep blaming immigrants for problems. They did it in the 1800s and 1900s too. It's not immigrants that our causing our decline. It's our corrupt business and politics plus a culture of hedonism with no morality (real morality not Christian pseudo morality). Every failing culture in all of history tried to go back to its roots at the end. Muslims are doing the same thing right now, going back to outdated traditions to escape feelings of powerlessness.
They are illegal aliens not immigrants when you understand the difference maybe it will all make sense to you. Now you compare the US to the Muslims? I don't think I will allow you to influence my basis for morality your moral compass seems to be pointing in an odd direction.
The way forward is not in going backward. It's never worked. We are Rome. Research the fall of Rome. We gotta try something new.

Yeah but those legal channels are extremely difficult as I pointed out and her husband confirmed. So all these people living in violence and poverty ridden communities should worry about our laws when we caused most of their problems?
Americans have this attitude where everything we do is perfectly right. We've never made mistakes ever.
