Woe ... You mean the uneducated kids of the immigrants will be barred from the public schools because they don't speak German?
If they don't know how to speak German, how will they learn it if they aren't in the schools, you know, learning?
I'll bet you think their parents, who also don't speak German, will teach them ...

What's the big deal? If a foreign culture is becoming a large part of your culture then your culture is shrinking. Accommodating to the growing culture is just common sense.
I do find it interesting that in 2200, the German people won't be around anymore. If they are, they will be a small minority in their own homeland. So, the German culture won't be around either. The German people will be wiped from history and forgotten about like all other people/ cultures that have done the same thing.
The Japanese have adopted an 'xenophobic' stance on immigration. As a result, they will still have their own country in 2200 and their culture will still exist too. So, there will be a Japanese people and culture in the future.

Well, it is just not as easy as you might suggest.
In the daycare facility of one of my children, there are kids from 7 different religious denominations. 23 countries.
They don't have the space or the facilities to present 3 or more different menus to the kids, so everyone gets the same and that has to accomodate every possible variation.
Which leaves mostly chicken, turkey and some beef (there are only 2 hindi in the daycare, so they have to eat "something else", don't know what?).
So, what should have happened? The muslim kids should have been forced to eat something their parents would never agree to? Like your children eating dog or horse? Horse is not so bad, but I would have problems agreeing to dog-meat..
