I have no problem with legal immigration. I do have a problem with a refusal to assimilate into an American way of life, however.

Being in Texas is an ongoing social experiment, as I'm sure it is in the other border states. We obviously have a huge Hispanic population. I think we probably have as many illegals as we do legals. I have no problem with the legals as the Texas/Mexico cultural intermingling is a part of our heritage. Hell, there were quite a few Mexicans who fought along side our founders for freedom. The funny thing is, almost to a person, the legal immigrants I know have a real chip on their shoulder about illegals who choose to go around the system when you talk to them in private, but I rarely see any public statements of disapproval.

Thee is only one flag that is legally allowed to fly at the same height as the Red White and Blue, and it's because we fought alone for our independence. I have no problem with cutural loyalty, but if were to ever see something like the video I would do the same thing, although I think I would run Ol' Glory back up solo.

Funny you mention the not speaking Spanish part. I have worked with a guy for over 10 years, who also just so happens to live a couple of miles away, who is 3rd generation American. I remember when he started at work, about 3 weeks after I did. I walked into control lab to introduce him to some folks, three of which who are Mexicans. One fo the guys said something to him in Spanish and Edward replied, "Dude, speak English, I don't speak or understand Spanish".

His Grandparents very much beleived if they were going to be Americans, English was the language their family would speak.

If any of you know an older Hispanic male very well you can imagine how getting called "Dude" by a 22 year old kid went over:lol:
