so that there was no confusion as to what I was saying. This would be especially important when doing something as important as speaking in a court of
law. At the same time, seeing as how this WAS immigration related, using an interpreter did NOT win this guy any friends.
I worked for 8 years with illegal immigrants who spoke spanish. Every day I was made to feel as though I left my Country. Day after day, month after
month, year after year. It drove me insane being forced to listen to that. I didn't leave my Country! They left theirs! They knew, understood and
spoke english but usually refused to.
All across the USA, many jobs require you to speak 'their' language. 'Their language is everywhere. No other culture has been catered to or changed
America the way that the spanish speaking population has. So yeah, don't be amazed that so many of us get worked up as you say.
Why is it a requirement to speak Spanish for a majority of job opennings nowdays, whether blue collar or white collar?
I'm sick and tired of the pandering towards the hispanic community and I'm tired of rolling out the red carpet to these people just because their
own piece of garbage country doesn't provide for them. In fact here is a letter I'm going to write to Obama and all of the sock puppet politicians
that insist on not doing anything about a major problem that continues to worsen:
Dear Mr Obama and members of congress:
I’m planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for my health, and I would like to ask you to assist me.
We’re planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. into Mexico , and we’ll need your help to make a few arrangements.
We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws.
I’m sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, would you mind telling your buddy, President Calderon, that I’m on my way over?
Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:
1. Free medical care for my entire family.
2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might need, whether I use them or not.
3. Please print all Mexican Government forms in English.
4. I want my grandkids to be taught Spanish by English- speaking (bi-lingual) teachers.
5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American culture and history.
6. I want my grandkids to see the American flag on one of the flag poles at their school.
7. Please plan to feed my grandkids at school for both breakfast and lunch.
8. I will need a local Mexican driver’s license so I can get easy access to government services.
9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico, but I don’t plan to purchase car insurance, and I probably won’t make any special effort to learn
local traffic laws.
10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol car has
at least one English-speaking officer.
11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my housetop, put U.S. flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any
complaints or negative comments from the locals.
12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start.
13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, or about the
strain we might place on their economy.
14. I want to receive free food stamps.
15. Naturally, I’ll expect free rent subsidies.
16. I’ll need income tax credits so that although I don’t pay Mexican taxes, I’ll receive money from the government.
17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Government pays $4,500.00 to help me buy a new car.
18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the Mexican Social Security program so that I’ll get a monthly income in retirement.
I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things for all his people who walk over to the U.S. from Mexico . I am sure that
President Calderon won’t mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely.
Thank you so much for your kind help.
Now do I expect even one of these requests to be fulfilled or acknowledged? Of course not. In fact If I went to Mexico and demanded any of these
things I would be thrown in jail, tortured, or raped if I was a woman. In fact that's how most countries handle criminals that enter their country
illegal. They have zero tolerance and sympathy and could care less that they are 'looking for a better life'.
