Theres nothing wrong with an immigrant who assimilates properly and blends into the culture. A+ for them.
The problem is immigrants who fail, or more often, dont even try to assimilate, and simply come here and create little, or big, non-american outposts
that are essentially tiny third world pockets allowed to erupt within US borders. They refuse to speak english, refuse to leave behind their third
world behaviors, and, again, willingly fail to assimilate.
They also send tons of the money they leech back to there "home" countries. See, Most of them dont even see this as a new land, a new home, but simply
as an open opportunity to parasite and siphon resources from the country and send it elsewhere, where it will never be seen again by an American
Interesting anecdotal story that to me proves old immigrants are NOTHING like the parasitical ones invading the country today: my mothers grandmother
was Russian. As a little girl, my mother asked her grandmother to teach her Russian. She said: "NO! You NOT russian! You AMERICAN!" and that was the
end of the conversation, and my mother never learned Russian.
As Ive witnessed in my life living in an area highly populated with "immigrants", the example above is diametrically opposed to the immigrants of
today, specifically, the Hispanic ones. They are here to dilute the culture, create outposts of their own country in ours (no, most of them DO NOT see
America as their country... but they sure are trying to MAKE it their country), siphon money out of the country.
Yeah, theres always the exception to the rule, but they are few and far inbetween from what Ive seen.
