All in all I think its just a technicality BUT its still not the official language. So in my opinion the government cant make them learn anything.

But back to the post, I think it's a good idea to control the borders and if people want to come here and work or live there needs to be a standard that they will have to abide by in order to do it.

With that said, If I went to Mexico and planned on living there for a while I would probably learn as much Spanish as I could. It would sure make life easier.

I've heard that its a lot harder for immigrants from England and some other prosperous countries to enter the USA.

I rarely see any British people here in Texas. I wonder why that is?

If the guest to work program of President Bush passes than it would grant amnesty to approximately 12 million illegal's.

Its because they dont border us like Mexico does and what reason would the English come here except maybe to study or because they have met someone...

Their economy is fine and their Universities are second to none. They have no reason to be here unlike Mexico.

Great, then we can have an economy like Mexico's. How long do you think it will take you and your "brothers" to achieve this level of excellence?? And where will you go when you have exhausted the economy here?? If you have all of the answers why don't you put them into practice in your homeland, maybe then you can show us how it's done.
