In response to Justin's letter, I'm well aware of our history with regard to immigration, and the fact that most of our previous immigrants groups did not speak English as a native language. My grandparents certainly didn't, but they learned. Nor were they educated or literate. But then, Justin, most people even until the 1950s here, didn't need even a high school education to make a decent living. Try that today. As for learning English--my grandparents and other immigrants learned English because they wanted to and had to. There was no accommodation for nonEnglish speakers as we have now, even to the point of providing ballots for US elections in the native languages of people who should be able to handle basic English.
