I read this on another site:

********************************
********************************
Amusing... So, we have people demonstrating in the streets that they want their citizenship rights, but aren't willing to follow the protocols and procedure for procuring said rights. Yes, these are people I want to naturalize.

When I went through the process, I had a college education from an American university, had lived in the States for years, and worked my entire professional life for American companies. I went through the process of filing paperwork, photos, background interview, test [which I needed to study for], and proving to a naturalized Latino INS person that I had a command of the English language--being as I was from a foreign country called England. There was a process which I happily obliged. After many months of this process [and after having been a law-abiding, tax-paying Alien Resident for over five years], I was finally honored by being Naturalized in the Superior Court of Arizona.

I did NOT demand to be given rights which weren't mine in the first place. I did not parade making obscene demands with the flag of the Cross of St George propped above a skewed 'Old Glory'... Such an act would dishonor the very thing I was attempting to attain....

I'm mexican and all i can say is that most mexicans work there butts off so they can have money and whatever they'd like.I think mexicans and americans should get along after all were all family in Gods eyes and what happened i thought we were all equal in the USA well that's sure not what i think.Americans get mad at us cuase they say were taking there jobs but thats not true cuase americans dont really look for jobs and that's why they don't have one.

I'M A MEXICAN AND I THINK THAT WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO STAY IN AMERICA BECAUSE WE COME TO THE U.S TO WORK TO SEND MONEY TO OUR FAMILYS IN MEXICO.BUT THE WHITE PEOPLE THINK WE ARE HERE TO TAKE THEIR JOBS AND DO BAD.BUT ITS NOT TRUE BECAUSE ALL WE WANT IS TO WORK TO GET MONEY SO WE COULD BE ALBE TO BUY US A MEAL,SHELTER,CLOTHES,AND EVERY THING WE NEED TO LIVE.BUT THEY WON'T GIVE US A CHANCE HERE.ALL THEY WANT IS TO KIK US OUT OF HERE AND GO BACK.

i'm mexican all the way and i'm totlay against wat you guys say. MEXICANS and other LATINOS come to this country to have a better life for their families. i want to see a gringo go to the fields and work there for 10 to 12 hours in the hot sun with hella little pay.if you say that "MEXICANS" come to this country to take your jobs, go work there and then you can say all the shit you want. And yet you are nothing to say those things about us. and remember this "a day without a mexican you wont be FELIZ"

Posted by: ERICA at October 3, 2007 01:51 PM


We all need to STOP bitching at each other because whether Americans like us (Hispanics in general) or not, WE ARE NOT LEAVING THIS COUNTRY ;P... That is a proven fact. Check what race is going to be a majoriity by 2050 and which ones are going to be minirities. This will prove to you that WE ARE NOT LEAVING. For those insuting Mexicans and Hispanics in general, I feel sorry for you because you do not have the courage nor confidence to step up in front of a Mexican and say it to his/her face. I apologize for the dishonoring display of the US flag by my people. They were, perhaps, influenced by anger, just like many of you all were at the time you your offensive comments. Therefore, why don't we work out a legimitive compromise that will satisfy everybody?

Us mexicans just try to make a living, so white people shut up about taking ur jobs, we just take the jobs you people wont do.

Posted by: Andrew at October 15, 2007 11:47 AM


There are no jobs that Americans won't do. Illegal aliens are doing jobs that Americans can't take and still support their families. Illegal aliens take low wage jobs, live dozens in a single residence home, share expenses and send money to their home country. There are no jobs that Americans won't do for a decent wage.Illegal aliens are NOT critical to the economy. Illegal aliens constitute less than 5% of the workforce. However, they reduce wages and benefits for lawful U.S. residents. Yes Hispanics should be able to provide for their families and make money but they do not have the right to do it the illegal way just like Americans can't just pick up their stuff and move to another country. If we were to just let anyone in that wanted a better life, our country would go down the drain.

EVERY1 IS OFF TOPIC. THE POINT IS U ARE IN AMERICA...U DO NOT DISRESPECT THE PLACE U LIVE IN BY PUTTING UR FLAG ABOVE IT. IF AN AMERICAN DID THAT IN MEXICO THEY WOULD BE STONED TO DEATH IN A MATTER OF MINUTES...THE ITALIANS AND OTHER FOREIGNERS DIDNT PUT THEIR FLAG ABOVE THE UPSIDEDOWN USA FLAG WHEN THEY CAME OVERSEAS BACK IN THE DAY DID THEY??? AND BACK IN THE DAY IT WAS A MUST THAT U LEARN ENGLISH. NO1 WOULD ACCOMODATE ME IN MEXICO IF I WENT OVER THERE WITHOUT LEARNING SPANISH. AND I BLAME THE US GOVERNMENT PARTIALLY TO FOR BEING TOO ACCOMMODATING AND ALLOWING THIS SHIT TO GO ON FOR TOO LONG...NOW THERES NO TURNING BACK

Posted by: HRT at January 8, 2008 12:19 PM


well i'm mexican and i think that it's best if we just come together and find a legal way for illegal immigrants to work and be here legally. I don't see why us mexicans HAVE to go back. We are here and althou they may send some back to their country immigrants will ALWAYZ BE HERE!!.people tend to think we love commiting crimes,that's not true, if we were given a way to be legal, we wouldn't be driving w/out a license,using fake id's and SS,identity theft, etc because we no longer would have to. so the government should provide resources for us to work,LIVE,and make America what it's known for......LAND OF FREEDOM!!.

I am producing a video for a campaign for congress and want to use the photo of the Mexican flag over the U.S. flag. Please give me a name and phone number of somebody that I can talk with to obtain permission.

hey i just want to say that why do white homeless guys just stand there and wait to have some monye; they are U.S. citizins why dont they work and make a living. most mexicans don't have papers but they make a living, i don't think that wait for people to give them monye.

Posted by: monkey boy at March 1, 2008 12:11 PM


Honestly, being half mexican and half german... i have to say that for one, the skewing of the american flag was a mistake. i am mexican but above all american. we live here in america. i look at some of these fellow mexicans as mis lead. only because they are taking the wrong approach. whats 5 years out of your life? and the main language here is english. so out of respect the mexicans who want to get rights must first become citizens and in order to do that they should learn english. for some it might be too hard but im sure 5 years is plenty of time. so be a real and represent la raza the right way. viva la raza!


ok bye

To those who think Hispanics don't try:

First, learn how to write English correctly since you are such a fanatical American who gets upset because other people can't speak English the way you do (incorrectly). Second, you need to get your facts straight. If you want to use that as a way to defend your values, well, I am sorry to say but you sound wishy washy. English IS THE THIRD HARDEST LANGUAGE IN THE WORLD! The majority of those people DO TRY. The majority of Americans don't even speak right. It's all slang. And some times Hispanics and others from other countries can't learn English even if they do want to because 1) they work to the point that they have no time to go to a school where they can learn 2)maybe they do speak but feel more comfortable that their children help them out since their child usually speaks better than them. And maybe it high time that you people learn how to speak another language. English is not eveything. Soon, in the business world, you will need to know how to speak Japanese or Chinese or both.

For those who think Illegal people are taking jobs and are disturbing the advancement of other Americans:

I only have one thing to say: I would love to see you work in the fields or factories for 10 hours for LOW-MIN. WAGE! Or any job for that matter. And if you think for a second that businesses that hire these people are going to be paying you more, it's obvious you need to take college American History. This has been a controversy for over a hundred years. And the situation is the same... so WE DO NEED THESE PEOPLE OR AT LEAST have lazy gov. sucking leeches get from their butt and work the same as these people with out recieving any more welfare. Medicad does not count!

Accomadations:

Seeing that you are American, trust me...They WOULD try to accomadate for you so that you have no problem communicating. In Spanish-Speaking countries there are people who speak English better than Americans! And there are Americans in those other countries...how about you staying other here and not take THEIR JOBS. Ever thought of that?

And no, I don't agree with what they did. But you need to learn how to look first before making hypocritical statments, cause making them makes you look ESTUPIDO!

I think it is very wrong to dishonor are country's flag. And also I think it is wrong that Americans are angry about Mexicans taking there jobs we all came from a different a country why can't we all just get along? Tips: 1)Learn how to speak English it will be much easyer to live there. 2) Please don't dishonor are flag it isnt helping any.3)Americans Should never complain about Mexicans taking there jobs as I typed before we all came from different countrys and besides that Mexicans have familys in Mexico they need to feed.

Posted by: Eric King at March 22, 2008 02:31 PM


you guys know that right know that the usa needs money they are getting it from the mexicans living here. police are giving nor tickets to mexicans. and for your information most mexicans DO pay taxes you f!cking r@cists. i never told you guys that all blonds are dumb so why the heck you telling sh!t about my people you a55hole5 have no right because you don´t even know us we don´t judge people by their race but i guess you do.

Posted by: mary at March 31, 2008 04:34 PM


hmmm.... I notice only one US flag upside down under a Mexican one.

The other US flags appear upright...

So just one idiot?

British immigrants don't deal with the same discrimination Latino immigrants do. The ignorant want to deport even the legal immigrants. They harass naturalized citizens to scare them from voting. I'm pretty sure they'd want to deport all those damn Puerto Ricans as well, if they could (Puerto Ricans are natural born US citizens, for those that don't know, such as possibly the "omg they're everywhere!" commenters...)

Posted by: A half Latina at April 10, 2008 11:38 PM


America boasts itself as being the Land of Opportunity, have no problem going to other countries and exporting democracy (which I am not saying I disagree with, the idea is good) and then when people have the nerve to take up some of these ideas, people give out about!!! It's crazy since you don't have to go to far back in any American's family tree to find when their ancestors moved to the US.

I'm Irish by the way and I did live in America for a while (legally), but don't any more.

OK, I am a Mexican, too and I am commenting to what that lady up there said (Vonie), the snot nosed Mexican's, as you said are NOT the only ones running around the stores, so don't be hating because you couldn't get a better job, ,being born w/ Citiznes rights!!!!

Posted by: Abe-Man at April 28, 2008 07:10 PM


I agree with A Half Latina. It is unfortunate that the media has made this one person out to represent the sentiments of immigrants and Mexicans alike when the majority are fighting to be accepted into American society and to stay here. What's most disturbing is that the majority of people are easily believing that crap! This person does not represent the sentiments of every Mexican immigrant!!! Just like George Bush does not represent the ideals of every American in this country!!! Also further above Jeff says it took him 5 years to become a naturalized citizen and that he didn't complain through the process and did everything he was supposed to do. Well you're lucky Jeff because a lot of the Hispanic/Mexican immigrants try very hard and pay lots of money that they don't have (especially since lots come from developing countries, not an economically sound and powerful country like the U.K) to get citizenship BUT for some reason it takes them MUCH longer than 5 years to get legal status - sometimes a decade or more! No doubt there is institutionalized racisim there that you as a Caucasian British immigrant did not and will never have to face. Which is not you're fault or something that I would wish on you, but it is a fact, it is a harsh reality that brown immigrants have to face when they try to make a life in the US. Shit I, my family and close friends who are Mexican-American have to face this racism too and we were born in this country!!! Plus, Mexican or Hispanic immigrants don't have the time to wait around for a decade to see if MAYBE they might become a citizen...so what do they do? They go find a job where a business is willing to pay them. This war on "Illegal" immigration is degrading, racist and unrealistic. You can't fight the market. My point is if there is a demand there is a way - immigrants are not going anywhere. Unfortunately they have become an easy target to blame national and state problems on. If you look into U.S immigration history of the Mexican migrant, he/she has always had to face a higher level of racism/discrimination verses other groups of immigrants, ESPECIALLY more than CAUCASIAN, light-skinned immigrants. In addition this is the 2nd/3rd period of time that the Mexican immigrant has been used for lower wages then put through massive deportation as "Americans" get tired of them, blame societal problems on them and/or criminalize them. Does this sound familiar? It is definitely a vicious cycle that Mexicans need to get out of, one that I don't understand how it can happen again and again! What is happening to the Mexican immigrant is nothing new, but as a Mexican-American I'm proud to be apart of the movement to stop these racist cycles. As Hispanics, Mexican immigrants and other groups fight for their rights within this particular issue, other important ideas and facts are coming through - Mexicans do not drain the economy or the healthcare system, Mexicans have not increased crime like the media has led you to believe, they are not taking jobs away from Americans, with many more misconceptions or racist stereotypes being proved wrong by various institutions and research studies. I have statistics from the U.S. government and educational organizations to back up these statements. In regards to Mexican immigrants being only 5% of the labor from a post way above - if that's true than why are people saying that Mexicans immigrants are taking jobs away from Americans? In fact until this recent recession-like period in our economy, employment of native-born citizens had been on the rise and unemployment was in a decreasing trend despite an influx of Mexican immigration during that same time. And recently as many states are passing employment laws that are anti-immigrant and making it harder for immigrants to find jobs, unemployment has been increasing while employment has been decreasing for American citizens - that's with less job opportunities specifically for immigrants! Also, corporations are physically shipping out jobs out to other countries, not keeping them here while taking them away to give to the lower-paid immigrants who come here "illegally." And since most have limited education, they can't compete for the remaining better-paying jobs...Americans do. And that's just one example.

I'm not trying to spur or encourage hate between races. But many people aren't aware of wrong vs right, factual vs fictional information when it comes to race, jobs, economy, etc. There needs to be awareness and education on these topics as well as a consciousness that the status of and opinions on race in the United States definitely contribute to issues like immigration becoming overtly racist and bigot-like, whether you admit it to yourself or not. If you're letting racist stereotypes or false information convince you of the negative images of Mexicans, or any other immigrant or minority group for that matter, without educating yourself first, you are no better than the very people you are trying to put down! Usually you find the highest racism among people who have little or low education and therefore are limited in the amount of income they can make over their lifetime. Naturally, us people in the "lower class" feel the hits of a slowing down economy first, with massive lay-offs, even lower wages, etc. So as times get tough, these people usually try to look for a group as a scapegoat, a group of people they can blame for their problems, and look to politicians and the government their in charge of for help. Then we have the majority of people easily believing politics when politicians, who are supposed to be the ones with the information the data the answer, blame the country's problems on immigrants, minority groups, etc. They're the ones in charge and should look to their mistakes first and should try to find a solution as soon as possible rather than wasting time on media campigns to shift the public's view away from them and onto easy targets!!! Since immigrants don't have rights as "illegals" they do become an easy target. Since you can easily distinguish them physically as "different" with their brown eyes, hair and skin, they are an easy target. That is not the solution.

Another thing to think about is that this whole dilemma started gaining support and speed when the economy started slowing down. When it was strong, nobody cared about "illegal immigrants." Everyone was happy making money. I hope we get a President who can make the economy stronger and who can bring all the races to work together to make it better for everyone!

Another hispanic here. We all should be proud of our own culture and be willing to adopt or at least accept those customs and laws ruling the region of the world we consider best for our personal growth and better economy. Legality in terms of how every person ended up here is relative, if we consider that this land was originally owned by native Americans and they did not even consider being the owners of this land. They used to have a different cosmovision or philosophy of life: "Men belong to the land, land does not belong to men" they had more respect for nature. Only education and spirituality can give us an opened mind, respect and tolerance. In developing countries not everybody has the oportunity to have an education and enjoy a dignifying life. A country like the United States acts like a light attracting people from poor countries. Some people being illiterate even in their own countries take chances and they make it accross the border -With this I do not mean everybody comes here elegally and stealing land from others (the way Spaniards and British conquered these regions of the world).- They resign to their food,customs, families trading it for a bad paid job, being exploited, abused, discriminated against and accepting their new reality, maybe a better life, compared with what their own country could not offer them and hoping that the future will promise something better if not directly to them but to their kids. Not only Hispanics get involved in crime, there are whites from different countries, blacks and other ethnicities. We tend to stereotype and it is easy to say that something is happening because Hispanics here, or Hispanics there. I think in general all those who tend to be racists is because of lack of education, interaction with other languages and other cultures. Americans, or I should say people in the United States should be less ethnocentric and travel more and as someone else say in one of the posts here, we should learn (I include myself because I am a naturalized American now, even if you do not like it)a second, or third language and read more.

I think that the least those dirty backstabbing Americans can do for Mexicans after what they did to Mexico in betraying their trust after Mexico allowed thousands of anglos to settle in Texas and California for free, is return the favor to Mexicans by allowing them to stay in the U.S no questions asked. I mean after we Mexicans extended our hand in friendship toward the U.S we expected kindness in return and what did we get instead, we got a betrayal and the boot of Uncle Sam. In all fairness the U.S should at least let us settle in what is rightfully ours, although we did lose this territories through a betrayal we can let bygones be bygones if those stupid, racist, backstabbiog, Americans would just let us remain here. Funny how those Americans repay an act of kindness we let people settle in Texas in order to boost the economy of the region and provide opportunity to the immigrants instead the settlers had other plans. They wanted to claim the land that we let them BORROW for the U.S. Just goes to show you that people dont treat you the same way you treat treat them. Now the Americans are saying that Illegal immigrants are not allowed here, even after we allowed immigrants into Mexico and even gave them free land in Texas what do immigrants get when they get here to live the American dream, they get treated like disposable slaves. They get threatened to get sent back to Mexico when all they want is to work, they are not demanding handouts like the ones the Mexican government gave to the white sttlres of Texas. Mexicans are a very hard working people and without the generosity of the Mexican people toward the U.S this country would not even be 1/16 the country it is now.
By the way I was born in Long Beach and raised in the U.S my whole life.

Posted by: Mexican boy at September 16, 2008 05:05 PM


I'm a white boy, and I think that the Mexicans deserve to be here, and that sending every illegal back to mexico, would in face hurt this country more then help it, simply becuz the cost to track down every illegal in the US. Also, my best friend is mexican, straight from mexico, and mexicans are the hardest workers that I know. In fact I have never seen a white person work as hard as a mexican, ever. and thats what we need in this country is hard workers.

I’m sick and tired of this!
Listen now...

Now I wish I had a dime for every single time
I’ve gotten stared down for being in the wrong side of town
And a rich man I’d be if I had that kind of chips
Lately I wanna smack the mouths of these racists

Can you imagine yourself
As a Mexican crossing the border
Thinking of your family while you cross
Leaving all you know behind
What if you had to dodge bullets
Of some gringo ranchers
Would you keep saying “GOOD FOR NOTHING WETBACKS!?
If you had to start from scratch?
Now why don’t you look down to
Where your feet is planted
That U.S. soil that makes you take shit for granted...
If not for Santa Ana, just to let you know
That where your feed are planted would be MEXICO
Correcto!!!

Gimme the Power
(Molotov)

The police are extorting you (money)
But they live on what you pay
And if they treat you like a delinquent (thief)
It's not your fault, thank the ones in charge
That could uproot the problem
And change our country's government
The burocrats
The people who like the crumbs
That's why I complain and complain
Because here is where I live
I'm no longer an asshole
You don't see the government jobs
There are people who are getting rich
People who live in poverty
Nobody does anything because nobody's interested
The people above hate you, more people who want their heads
If you give power to power they'll come after you harder
Because we were a world power
We're poor, they treat us badly

Because we're not born where there's nothing to eat
There's no need to ask ourselves how we're going to do it
If they say we've got no balls
We have, VIVA MEXICO CABRONES!!!! (viva mexico you bastards)
Let the mexican power be felt, let it be felt
All together like brothers because we are more
We eat the same because they're following a ball of assholes
Who take us wherever they want and it's our sweat that keeps them there
It keeps them there eating hot bread, that bread is our people's bread

The people united will never be defeated!!!!!!!

"Somos Mas Americanos"


A thousand times they have shouted at me,
"Go home, you don't belong here"
Let me remind the Gringo
That I didn't cross the border, the border crossed me
America was born free - Man divided her
They drew the line so I would have to jump it
And they call me Invader
That's a big error
They took eight states from us - who is the invader here?
I am a stranger in my own land
I don't come to make war - I'm a working man

If history does not lie, the Powerful Nation was seated here in glory
Composed of valiant warriors
Indians of two continents
Mingled with Spaniards
And if we go by the centuries
We are more American ["Somos Mas Americanos"]
We are more American
Than any son of the Anglo-Saxon


They purchased from us, without money, the waters of the Rio Bravo
They took from us Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado
California too, and Nevada
Even with Utah it was not enough - they also took Wyoming from us!

I am of Indian blood - I am Latino - I am Mestizo
We are of all colors and all occupations
And if we go by the centuries
Though it pains The Neighbor
We are more American
Than every last one of the Gringos


Ya me gritaron mil veces
que me regrese a mi tierra
Porque aqui no quepo yo
Quiero recordarle al gringo
Yo no cruce la frontera
La frontera me cruzo
America nacio libre
El hombre la dividio
Ellos pintaron la raya
Para que yo la brincara
Y me llaman invasor
Es un error bien marcado
Nos quitaron ocho estados
Quien es aqui el invasor
Soy extranjero en mi tierra
Y no vengo a darles guerra
Soy hombre trabajador

Y si no miente la historia
Aqui se sento en la gloria
La poderosa nacion
Entre guerreros valientes
Indios de dos continentes
Mezclados con español
Y si a los siglos nos vamos
Somos mas americanos
Somos mas americanos
Que el hijo de anglosajon

Nos compraron sin dinero
Las aguas del Rio Bravo
Y nos quitaron a Texas
Nuevo Mexico, arizona y
Colarado, tambien volo
California y Nevada con
Utah no se llenaron
El estado de Wyoming
Tambien nos lo arrebataron
Yo soy la sangre del indio
Soy latino soy mestizo
Somos de todos colores
Y de todos los oficios
Y si contamos los siglos
Aunque le duela al vecino
Somos mas americanos
Que todititos los gringos!

IF YOU WANT TO LIVE HERE IN AMERCIA THEN FIGHT IN OUR MILITARY AND EARN YOUR RIGHT TO BE HERE. MY FATHER AND GRANDFATHERS FOUGHT IN THE WARS HERE TO MAKE THIS LAND BETTER FOR AMERICANS. NOT FOR ILLEGALS THAT COME HERE AND GET FOOD STAMPS AND OTHER AMERICAN HANDOUTS THAT YOU NEVER WORKED FOR. AND ANOTHER THING...LEARN ENGLISH!!! THIS IS OUR LANGUAGE.

There is sure alot of ignorance going on.Know your history you stupid racist rednecks,you stole our land and our resources for no reason.You wanted your land to stretch from sea to shining sea.Even if it meant shedding the blood and tears of millions of people throughout your history.And for all those morons that say we all bring drugs, maybe you should stop buying them.We also bring diseases they say, when it is proven that the white man brought all sorts of diseases to the Americas.But, I am not ignorant like you assholes,I know that there are good white people,I have met a few.As I know that there are people from our own race that despise us.Before blacks were the most hated race in this country,now it is us, Mexicans.Just for one day I would like for all Mexicans to disappear from this country,then we would see what you stupid,racist,bitch gringos would do,take a Mexicans job picking fruit under 100 degrees of heat,or scrubing shit of a rich gringo's bathroom,I don't think so,so just shut the f*!k up.

You know what, this is the problem that white people have with mexicans. We have lived here our whole lives and you come here and expect us to learn your language. Well I am NOT doing it. My husband is hispanic and you mexicans look down your noses at him because he doesn't speak spanish. Well his father came here from mexican and refused to teach him the language. My father in law says, you live here you speak english. Plus, you say you are doing jobs that americans won't do. BULLSHIT!! All of my family use to work in constuction but you mexicans took that from us at a lower wage. ASSHOLES!! Just Get Out and go back where you came from. I also see you mexicans doing county jobs so don't give me anymore of your lies. You work here under the table and collect welfare and drive BMW's, I have seen it. Sorry but the mexicans that have lived here for along time don't like you either. LOL

(((kim:BULLSHIT!! All of my family use to work in constuction but you mexiCANs took that from us)))

KIM!! I THINK MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE WE ARE BILINGUAL!!!

Learning two languages.

There are many reasons to teach children multiple languages when they are young. Young children can pick up a new language faster and easier than a teenager or an adult. A second language is also a skill that allows a child to explore other cultures, and communicate with more people -- at home and abroad. Plus, with our own country becoming increasingly bilingual, IT CAN CREATE NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR EMPLOYMENT IN THE FUTURE. (see... I told you KIM! LOL)

But as the number of bilingual children (mostly English/Spanish speaking) has grown in the United States, so have the myths about how learning two languages affects children. Have you ever heard that bilingual children are more prone to language disorders such as using the wrong word? Or that bilingual children have trouble communicating in both languages? Do bilingual kids struggle more with reading and writing?
Research clearly shows that bilingualism does not cause language disorders. From time to time, children may use a word from one language while speaking in another. But these moments of language switching disappear after a few years, usually by age five.

Children can master more than one language at a time – it may just take longer. Learning one language is a big challenge for everyone. Learning a second set of words and grammar takes even more effort. It all boils down to exposure and practice. The more children hear and use a language, the faster they will learn it.

Exposure to more than one language at an early age does not make it more difficult to read and write later. In fact, there is some evidence that shows just the opposite is true – that learning to read in one language helps a child learn to read in another.

There is another benefit to teaching children to speak more than one language at an early age. Some studies suggest that bilingualism may help children develop certain attention skills sooner. Selective attention is the ability to focus on important details while ignoring distracting and misleading information. It is something that bilingual children practice a lot, as they learn to filter out words from one language when speaking in another.

SOOoO... WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY NOW KIM!!!

I am a Hispanic (Puerto Rican to be exact) and I am fluent in English and I can speak Spanish fluently as well, I just have trouble reading it. I was born in the US and I am very proud to be American and Puerto Rican. My Mom's side of the family all immigrated from Puerto Rico, and while already US citizens, gladly respected American values and the flag. One of my friends is Mexican, and even he proudly says the Pledge of Allegiance. And for your information, Mexico was lead by the Dictator Santa Ana, and he oppressed the Californians (White and Mexican alike) and Mexico started the Mexican-American war by firing on US troops patrolling the border. We don't go to Mexico disrespecting your land, so why do you come to America and disrespect our way of life?
