Assimilating immigrants into
the U.S.: New citizens view
America differently

Washington Times [DC], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/8/2013 7:35:31 AM

Even as Congress prepares to debate whether to legalize 11 million illegal immigrants and give them a path to citizenship, analysts are cautioning lawmakers to focus on the other part of immigration: assimilating them fully into America. All sides in the debate agree that assimilation is critical, but in a report being released Monday, the Hudson Institute, a conservative-leaning think tank, says the country has failed on that account in recent years. They found that immigrants — even those who earn U.S. citizenship — have far less attachment to their new home than native-born Americans.

It´s mostly about the Benjamins, Baby! Yes, there are some who proclaim the freedom and liberty bromides...but most seem to be around for commercial reasons...and to bring in the whole mal-educated family for the freebies!!

It is not written in stone that America must keep the doors open. Just like the bar on the corner, when the crowd reaches fire marshall capacity, the owner has the right to turn away late comers. It´s our country, and we owe nothing to anyone.

Wrong.

People who plan and save and struggle and leave their friends and family, risk their lives and children just to get here appreciate being here much more than the natives.

There used to be Italian Ghettos, Polish and Irish too.

While bicycling from L.A. to N.Y. a few years ago, I couldn´t help but come away with the profound observation that America is almost entirely empty. Try it and see for yourself.

Our Latino Brethren are very entrepreneurial
and soon come to embrace and insist on the Liberties they traveled here to enjoy.

The Dems have no lock on the Latino Vote.

Look the Democrats will do to Latinos that they did to blacks. They will make feel threatened, mistreated, victims, the need for Government to protect them from the racist Republicans. The Latinos will end up hating this country and most whites just like the blacks now do. The result will be Latino violence on whites just like the black on white violence - white girl bleed a lot - going on now in all the major cities that the msm won´t report about.

Serious as this problem certainly is, it pales in comparison with the far greater and graver danger to America resulting from the deliberate failure of our educational system to transmit and defend traditional, fundamental American values. It is the de-Americanization of our own children by radicals, Leftists, Progressives and useful idiots that is the biggest threat to the Republic and all that it represents.

My family came to American for economic OPPORTUNITY; the recent arrivals, in my close observation, seem to be coming here for the BENEFITS. Big difference, and the path to our economic ruin. I´m all in favor of immigration, but cut the link between immigration and benefits, and watch the increase in quality of immigrant suddenly rise. But then they wouldn´t vote Democrat. Oh, wait. . .

Mr. Aguilar said Mr. Obama has not made the same effort and that part of the reason is that he treats assimilation “like another entitlement program” rather than a set of values to be taught. “Assimilation has to be championed by someone. Normally it’s the president, and President Bush did. But this president really hasn’t at all,”...

Why would that be? Because "this president" has no fondness for America, no love for her. He hates her Constitution, believes she is imperialist and militaristic and believes she needs to be taken down a peg or two in order to make reparations to the disenfranchised.

We have lost this one and Obama is the nail in its coffin.

Assimilation is the true victim of illegal immigration. Illegals come to America for many of the same reasons legal immigrants do, with one glaring exception. Illegals sneak in at night, hide in the shadows and from the very first day they are here they play a constant game of lies and deciet. They avoid all contact with authority, interact with goverment only under false pretense for handouts and flout or ignore the law the rest of us must abey.

When an illegal gets pulled over he will usually give a false name, once released they simply disappear, assume another name and start over. They make no effort to learn the language, they do not need to, they rarely interact with legal rsidents.

So how do you take someone who holds his "host" country in such contempt and suddenly, by giving them another wonderful gift, expect them to suddenly be Uncle Sam all over?

The answer is you cannot. They did not come here like so many other waves of foreign national desperate to BE Americans. They came here desperate to make money, knowing all along the way that what they were doing was wrong in both a legal and a moral sense.

To paraphrase Tip O´Neil, "All assimilation is local."

Before federal systems assumed so many of their traditional responsibilities and roles, our neighborhood schools, churches and civic groups worked in concert to help immigrants assimilate. A quick look at just one of these elements is instructive. Until the 1970s, the children of immigrants were dropped into all-English classrooms and forced to learn the language (and salute our flag.) It was a hard-knock approach, but effective, and it is, today, a relic. What took its place? A series of celebrations. Celebration of the hyphenated American, of bilingual instruction and of multiculturalism. The the result of all this partying? Not a system that helps ease assimilation, but one seemingly designed to prevent it. Who gained from all of this? That´s a simple political question with a simple political answer,

I have a great idea! Take all those that Hate America in any way, those that don´t care about America and those that don´t want to care...pack them all up on a spaceship (may take thousands but it will be worth the price) and send them to another planet...hopefully far far away.

Assimilation will never happen now as the alien population group is too large with most of them speaking one foreign language, Spanish, and as of now they do not need to speak English to get a job, or exist in huge immigrant communities where most business activities are carried out in the Spanish language.

In the old days assimilation of the mostly European legal immigrants in America who spoke a lot of different languages happened because they needed to speak English to get a good job and be able to operate outside their individual ethnic immigrant communities. That process was also helped because most immigration was stopped from about 1920 and up until after the Second World War so those ethnic immigrant communities could not be recharged by new immigrants.

It will also not happen because the dominant political party throughout immigrant communities, the liberal Democrats, do not want assimilation as it is to their great future political benefit to keep identifiable ethnic and racial groups in place so that they can be worked by socialist oriented community organizers who are politically allied to the liberal Democrats.

As with everything else, there will always be the 10% mostly business oriented and educated immigrants, who be break that mold and become assimilated.

Senate Republicans already have their agenda set should they take the majority this fall. Seven months before the election, the GOP senators in line to become committee chairmen know what they would do with their gavels. In interviews with The Hill, the senators promised to work closely with House Republicans to break the legislative gridlock that has defined Congress since 2011. They are also vowing to step up oversight of the Obama administration dramatically and battle the president’s use of administrative power.

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

JERUSALEM — Israel’s top negotiator said Thursday that Israel will not release a fourth batch of Palestinian prisoners, a move that brings the sputtering U.S.-backed peace talks ever closer to collapse. In an all-night meeting brokered by U.S. diplomat Martin Indyk, Israel’s chief negotiator Tzipi Livni told her Palestinian counterparts that since the Palestinians had taken unilateral steps toward greater recognition by the United Nations, the Israeli government would cancel the final release of 26 long-serving Palestinian prisoners, according to Israeli officials close to the talks. At the meeting, Israel also called upon the Palestinians to withdraw the letters they

Suddenly the subject of income inequality has turned into a global love train. Politicians and public-policy shops all over the world are hopping onboard. Naturally the engineer is Barack Obama, who gives speeches on income inequality and won a presidential election by rolling over 1% of the population. Democrats in this year´s midterm elections are running on income inequality, and this is rational. Their alternatives don´t look attractive, despite ObamaCare´s seven million recruits.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft
