Based on the fortitude of the American people and those who wish someday to become citizens or permanent residents, there is a a road for effective immigration that is better for Americans and also better for immigrants.
This could be a huge challenge or a small hurdle depending on how the Washington privileged people—simply listen. During the summer of 2007 these elected officials got a good look at America’s voice. Did they listen?
Not really. Although the American people were clearly sending the message to their ‘leadership’ in Washington saying no more amnesty, no more lies, no more dishonesty, and stop putting gay and lesbian issues tucked away into reform bills; moreover, stop pretending and please start listening! I believe this matter is the single most important issue facing a new president and new congress.
Several talk show hosts and cable news networks openly state that one of the biggest difficulties is the ever-widening ditch that separates ‘congressional elites’ from average American’s is in the issues of American heritage, American history, American society, and especially our language. Why hasn’t Congress legislated English as the official language of the government?
In the academic community these ‘leaders’ have all but removed the notion of assimilation—the melting pot, in order to celebrate diversity through a multicultural ‘individualistic’ nation–‘salad bowl’ without setting up the bar of acceptable standards or norms. (Please see categories: Education, Immigration, Politics, Religion for more.)
*Here are three clearly established facts that the American people want overwhelmingly:
By 87 to 11 percent, the American people favor English as the official language of government. By 83 percent to 17 percent, American people believe immigrants should be required to learn English. Get this: The American people are also willing to pay for their belief in English. In addition, by 83 percent to 15 percent American’s would support programs of intensive English instruction to all needing it, including stipends to help immigrants attend the program.
There is a huge gap between the main stream media, academic left, and lefty politicians on one side of these issues and the overwhelming majority of Americans on the other. Isn’t it time listening to the American people.
