Why do some Americans hate the Mexicans or any Hispanics so much? It's like you have to speak English to be American, despite the huge ethnic melting pot which is what makes America
Well yeah... everyone should have to speak English to be American. Having a nation without one common universal language is insane.
Imagine you are an Emergency worker trying to get people to evacuate and 4 speak English, 3 of them speak only spanish, 2 speak portuges, 3 aramaic and 4 more Bantu.
Or just in general the costs of translating EVERYTHING into dozens of different languages.
One thing generally missed as well, is that illegal aliens are counted in the official census numbers... so our legal immigration numbers shrink. Poorer people from Africa and Asia essentially get screwed just because they don't live right next to a rich country.
Yeah but Americans don't even speak the native language anyway. The native way of things was destroyed from this back when you the USA gained independence. So who you find are "aliens" is funny, as the english speaking Americans are "aliens" anyway at least if you are a true native from before when the Europeans came over, 400 years ago.
But back to the point, who even decided English to be the official language? Historically, only the 13 eastern states which the USA formed on in 1776 spoke English, the rest wasn't even related but was taken anyway within time. Spanish, French, Russians and small enclaves of Dutch are just some of the language found out there. Having, one language does make things easier but you shouldn't just force people to speak it, especially when the USA is really a multi-language country.
Also, i find it very bigoted to call immigrants "aliens", they are people you know! I mean you say language is the issue, but from what i hear from American media at times, race is the problem here. It's like traits of the KKK and issues from how the black community used to be treated still exist in some kind of way in today's American extremist conservatives.
As i said before America is a melting pot of ethnicities, surely that is a good thing.
And you never answered my original question, why do Americans hate Mexicans so much?
But obviously limiting immigration a little makes sense but people shouldn't target certain ethnic groups, that's all
