    Well their constituency is in mostly illegal alien states where English is not the predominant language spoken.

    Go figure !!!!!

    What is wrong with American's in the USA ~ we speak ENGLISH here (like our forefathers) and we pay into SS so that we can get the measly benefits that are due us when we retire (not pay for illegal aliens to benefit).

    Why do people think they can get something for nothing??? Or have the rules bent in their favor. If people want to come to our country, let them do it legally and let them work and pay for their own retirement, etc. through our tax system.

    I know this is a democratic government society ~ but comon' people ~ ENGLISH and Legal Immigration

    Why do they want illegals to take over this country?

    illegals are illegals. They are criminals and they need to be deported.

    English should be our national language. Is it too much to ask from immigrants to speak English? I mean, go into a store and pick a food item at random and it will probably have have an English label with a Spanish subtitle under it.. If you want to live in this country, the least you can do is learn at least a little bit of the most spoken language in the country.

    I don't mind an illegal alien being here. Especially if their a friendly citizen. But changing our country because our next door neighbors can't get THEIR stuff together?!?! If they want to be here, they can be here performing odd jobs and learning a language, and maybe choosing to become a LEGAL citizen.

    If we're going to make the immigrants learn to speak English, then it's only fair to make President Bush learn to speak English, too.
