People tend to use the term immigrant loosely without giving much thought to who is an immigrant. Many people in America do not see themselves as immigrant but the truth is unless your fore-parents were here prior to Columbus coming to America you descendants of immigrants. There is no denying that America is made up of immigrants. Immigrants came to America from all different parts of the world and they did not all speak the same language. Sadly Sarah Palin is so busy sucking up to Donald Trump that she seem to have taken leave of her senses making that speech that Immigrants should speak English when they are in America. Hey I am not saying people shouldn’t try to learn English but they shouldn’t be forced to speak it and Sarah Palin and Donald Trump ought to understand this.

  1. Marva, Australia is the same, we have many wonderful diverse cultures here. I cannot imagine it any other way and I would not expect new immigrants to give up their own language. That is a part of who they are and where they come from. It should be embraced, not stifled.

    If you want to take the premise you started with to its fullest extent, every single person on earth is an immigrant from somewhere else. Dispersion started a very long time ago, and is nothing new. The history of the world, man’s inhumanity to man, is the history of one people-group invading the territory of another, and of either absorbing or being absorbed. The story of Native Americans, pre-Europe, is bloody and brutal as they killed each other and took lands from coast to coast. Europe was not the first to invade into the New World, and it won’t be either the last or the worst.

"the Beatles didn't 'ave a monopoly on love, no-one does. It doesn't belong to John Lennon, it doesn't belong to Janis, it doesn't even belong to Jesus, love belongs to all of us.
