"Our common language is a basis for our cultural unity. It's far from the only language spoken in the United States, but certainly it's the primary one. For folks wishing to advance here, knowledge of it is essential. We do immigrants no favors by bending over backwards trying to accommodate them in their native language, hindering their adapting to a new culture." [Emphasis Mine]
Those who think of illegal immigrants only in terms of economics -- i.e., the benefits they bring to a select segment of corporate America -- should study this paragraph. It reflects the deepest concerns of those of us who successfully fought these same money grubbers in the U.S. Senate. (And will do it again if they try to cram amnesty down our throats.)
Let's face it, hindering the adaptation of an immigrant to a new culture only benefits those who seek to EXPLOIT others by creating a permanent underclass in our society... it may benefit some businesses seeking so-called cheap labor... it does benefit liberal politicians who seek more government entitlements and give-aways.
We love our country and we want it back -- what's left of it.
And we don't want our government persecuting benevolent organizations like the Salvation Army for requiring employees to learn English.

The EEOC took action against 200 businesses this past year because they simply wished to require their employees to speak English on the job. This campaign of federal government harassment must STOP! Small businesses in America will be wrecked if the EEOC is allowed to enforce this further dismantling of America!

Yours In Freedom,
It's hard to believe that the Federal government would go after the Salvation Army. But note that they have also gone after over two hundred small businesses the same reason. This is just one more example of how America as we know it today is slipping away. We have totally abandoned our melting pot philosophy, at least as far as Spanish-speaking people are concerned. They are not expected to learn our language and adapt to our way of life. We are expected to accomodate them in every way. Just for the record: I don't mind immigrants coming here as long as they follow the rules and observe our way of life except of course, in their own homes as immigrants have done for generations.
This is just my opinion, but this action by the EEOC to me looks like the government targeting small businesses to put them out and turn everything over to the large companies, much the like the Federal family farm land grab of the 1970's. This would be foolish as according to the latest stats, 98% of all businesses in the U.S. employee less than two hundred people. Small business is the backbone and foundation of American business. But then again, when was the last time the government made good sense?
