1 In 5 Speak Language Other Than English At Home

When they do this at home, they also seem to do this in public

(Breitbart) An all-time high of nearly 62 million U.S. residents – or about one in five people – now speak a language other than English while at home, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) found.

The study, based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau, found 44 percent of those who don’t speak English primarily at home—a total of about 27.2 million—were born in the United States.

CIS’s research director Steven Camarota, the co-author of the report, said that this means the U.S.’s current immigration system is failing to properly assimilate people from foreign countries, and those assimilation problems are carrying over into future generations. Camarota said that can be attributed to all-time high levels of legal immigration with over a million people a year admitted into the U.S. legally, and a new “tolerance” in Washington for the continued surge of illegal immigration.

But, it’s considered raaaaacist to require immigrants to learn and speak the primary language of the United States. Instead, we’re supposed to change everything about us to conform to the immigrants.

The report found there were seven foreign languages other than English that more than a million people speak predominantly inside their homes, Spanish being the most prominent at 38.4 million. Chinese is second with 3 million people in America speaking it as the primary language inside their homes; national Philippines language Tagalog is third, with 1.6 million; Vietnamese fourth, with 1.4 million; French, fifth with 1.3 million; and Korean and Arabic are tied for sixth with 1.1 million each.

It’s probably raaaaacist for even mentioning this article and study. As a matter of fact, it was probably raaaaacist to do the study in the first place.

“What we need to do is make sure everyone coming into the United States understands who we are and that we are founded on Judeo-Christian values, that there is one rule of law and that’s what’s on the books and it’s not Sharia and we need to make sure we don’t engage in the same kind of mistakes in Europe where they did not engage in assimilation,” former Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI), the former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said in an interview with Breitbart News.

“[Europe] did not engage in assimilation so you ended up with pockets of decay in the Netherlands,” Hoekstra added. “I’m a native born Dutch guy, so I’m disappointed to see it happen. But where you did not have the assimilation then you have these pockets now where people are saying ‘We want Sharia law here,’ and you end up saying ‘No, no, no, no. That’s not how it works in the Netherlands. That’s not how it works in America.’ We have our sets of values and some things, and you know what, if you find our values and our laws somehow stifling and you can’t believe you can operate within them, then maybe America is not the best place for you to go. There have to be clear expectations for the kinds of behavior for the people who we allow to come into the United States. It’s a privilege; it is not a right.”

What used to be common sense, citizens from around the world assimilating as they came to the USA, learning our language, while also meshing their cultures with ours (how import have the Scots, Irish, and Italians been?), has been flushed down the toilet in the name of diversity and multiculturalism, as we as “tolerance”. We were once the great melting pot. Now we’re seeing the Balkanization of the nation, where you go somewhere and can barely understand the workers.

  1. German was once so common, especially in PA, that it almost became an official language of the US in the late 18th century. And President van Buren and his wife spoke Dutch in the home. So, a large minority speaking another language isn’t unusual in our history. The difference, though, is that societal pressure pushed them to at least learn English, if not adopt it as their primary language. Nowadays, it seems that almost all the pressure is applied to keeping linguistic minorities from assimilating.
