113. At least the Irish spoke English
I'm just wondering if anybody has thought about how the large Latino population will assimilate, or even if they will assimilate. One reason I believe illegal immigration is bad is because illegal immigrants don't have to pass all those civic literacy tests. My dad has a friend who immigrated to the US from India, now a US citizen, and he had to take a bunch of tests and learn alot of stuff about the US government and history. Just by learning that stuff it helps him to be an American and share our values. Illegal immigrants don't have to learn that.
