In LoTS response to me - he equated America's willingness to be open to other cultures with tax breaks. I fail to see the connection between the two things - other than further misperception of blame as belonging to the immigrants rather than to our politicians.
The connection, albiet tenuous, is the preferential treatment given to immigrant...over American citizens. Perhaps I didn't make that clear enough.
As for English being the national language...I'm all for it. Although, I wouldn't even know how to go about making that law...or what, exactly, it would entail. I just feel that if one comes to this country, one should learn OUR language...not expect US to learn theirs.
The way the tax breaks for immigrants figure in...is it's basically discrimination against law abiding citizens. Why give tax breaks to people who JUST came to this country? Further: Why allow them to leave, then come back, so that they can remain here tax free?
I don't see the government offering this deal to American citizens. Hmmm. wonder why?
You're correct, though, QT. It's the politicans who are allowing this to happen.
