43 percent dont even use English at home .


Oh, the horror.
The horror... I imagine those numbers have been fairly constant since like the 1830's nationwide.
You imagine?   You clearly imagine what you want.
Thatís a staggering number considering how many are functionally illiterate.
Who cares what they speak at home. and just because they don't speak English at home doesn't mean they can't speak English.

What are the 'staggering' number of functionally illiterate? Kind of curious what you claim.

I thought this thread was a joke, but checking the failed states index and to my surprise I see California. Credit where credit is due.

1 in 3 American welfare recipients live in California .
25 percent live at or below the poverty line .


The pension funds are unsustainable  a trillion dollars .


The taxes are incredibly high. Businesses leave so thereís less revenue.


All the rich people live along the coast.  But there are also large numbers of homeless.

They spend about 10 billion a year on illegal alien entitlements while illegals remit 30 billion a year.

43 percent dont even use English at home .

 More than 25 percent were not born in the us. 

There are a lot of people in California who are functionally illiterate.

 Crime is also going
Speaking of poverty, the highest rates of child enrollment in Medicaid are concentrated in the South and Southwest--red states. And opioiod addicts.

Quote
The top recipient of federal aid in FY 2014 was Mississippi, which relied on federal assistance for 40.9 percent of its revenue. Other states heavily reliant on federal assistance include Louisiana (40.1 percent), Tennessee (39.9 percent), Montana (39.1 percent), and Kentucky (38.5 percent). As we have previously noted, these states, and others that rely heavily on federal assistance, tend to have modest tax collections and a relatively large low-income population.

As for language, no matter what language they use, I bet most are using it to tell the truth, unlike our current leader and his followers. Think of the outright lies currently being told about comey and Boston.

Globalization, buddy.

No matter how much you fight or wish for it, the 1950s are gone, they're never coming back... and that's a good thing.

Globalization means that you have to get used to living among the Kims, Kumars and Kowalczyks. You're going to have to face the fact that you can no longer afford to be completely ignorant of other cultures, faiths or languages. You're upset that illegal immigrants are streaming into your first world countries? Hate to say, but that's what Capitalism does? All the good times in the 50s, well now you're facing the backlash. You think Capitalism creates wealth out of magic? A high standard of living and consumer culture requires raw materials and cheap labour. That's were the 3rd world countries came into play, along with wars, exploitation and displacement. Gradually, those countries begin to rot and where  do those people have to go? You better believe they're coming.

The American Dream comes at a price.

Visit South Africa (one of the sh*thole countries). 11 Official Languages, only 9% of the population speaks English at home, yet you'd be hard pressed to find someone who isn't fluent in English.

The world's changing, keep up.

Capitalism enables poor countries to become rich - Hong Kong, China, Korea, Brazil, India, Singapore. Capitalism created the conditions for globalization to increase. The internet, TV, mobile phones, cheap air travel. People from poor countries are now rich enough to be able to travel across the world to countries where they'd prefer to be living. They want to live there because they're capitalist countries that allow them the freedom to live their lives and prosper.  However, globalization doesn't mean they should be allowed to disregard other countries' laws. 

It's interesting that you're using the 'you deserve it' argument, rather than the 'all immigration is a net benefit to a country' argument which they still use in the UK. Though less and less these days.

A lot of people care.  Itís not just English at home.  Its also about American culture, which we have contrary to what a lot of idiots think.   Itís  the fact that they come and form enclaves in numbers far too large to assimilate.  This has never before been done in the us.   Immigration has to be measured meritocratic, diverse and LEGAL.

Ah the racists . Fantastic.
The nativists were mostly against losing control to the pope, a legitimate concern.
America has always been welcoming to legal immigrants it still is.  This is about illegal immigrants and the number let in and also how they are selected .

Calling people racists for being concerned about immigration is so lame. Thankfully it's becoming less common in the UK these days. Either you believe in completely open borders or you advocate some control. Anyone sane would agree with the latter. So it's just a question of how and how many.

So having a large population from one religious denomination that takes orders from the pope is not problematic?
U donít know history.


ANyways they werent racists , but they believed that there was something valuable that the US had to offer the world and immigrants.  They didnít argue the ridiculous :that the us has something important to learn from a Pashtun or an Aztec..

Your ad hominems are typical liberal arguments .  You are racist ?  You are stupid etc....

Iíd also say that having a large group o& muslims who would like to see sharia law in western societies is also a legitimate concern.lefties run cities into the ground and countries if given the chance.
They are the creators of communism and fascism, yet they believe that they are good and smart but in fact they are bad and dumb.

Just like Italian-Americans?

There were probably way more Italian home speakers at one time than any one Asian language being spoken at home. Or are you more worried about Spanish speakers?

As far as homelessness in the US goes, the war on poverty has become a war on the poor. Begun by Rudy in NYC, it has spread across the land. Get a ticket for loitering or vagrancy that you can't pay and it easily escalates into jail time.

And didn't that cause a few problems - gangsters policing their own communities, organised crime and stuff?
