I assure you most immigrants do learn to speak English or at least their next generation does. You know why... it benefits them to do so.
Tinman it is OK for Americans to be offended by a primarily English language publication printing Spanish articles, and their is nothing wrong with Those Americans pointing their displeasure of that fact out to the publication as long as it is done appropriately.

There is no comparison to the twenty million illegal immigrants in this country today, not only taking jobs, but also taking advantage of and demanding more services and rights. The open border advocates and pandering politicians have no regard for the millions through out the world who have applied through legal means and have to wait indefinitely, jump through hoops and pay fees on top of fees and then wait some more, sometimes for years because they choose to abide by the laws of this country while other choose to break them and are rewarded generously once they get past the border and into the cities. That is how it hurts me, You hurt my country you hurt me.
So, Turf magazine printing 1 article in Spanish and English is somehow the cause of Illegal immigration?

The reason Bush and the congress won't seal up the border is simple. U.S. industry likes cheap labor, and the Federal government is relying on millions of illegal immigrants paying into Social Security using false or stolen SS#s and never claiming a dime of it. It's not right, it is foolish, but that is the reason.

No turf is not to blame they just exhibit a symptom of the problem, and with your other statement you are dead on, it could not be truer

Actually the borders are left porous so that a revolution doesn't happen in Mexico. Our border is a safety valve for the corrupt Mexican gov't. Why do you think their prez squawks so much at the thought of closing the border?

This is getting way off topic.

I think this has run it's course and before it gets more any more off topic I thought it should be closed
