ok, nobody who comes to this country is required to learn english. But we won't feel sorry for you when you don't. But I will advocate and support free english lessons for immigrants, you can even tie it in with improved literacy programs for our illiterate population.
AS for our poor ass excuse for an immigration policy. any bureaucracy will slow the whole thing down. what we need is an effective way to get people in and keep the bad people out. One really hasn't been devised yet. I'll think about one for the next few days.
