1. Nearly a third of all “English learners” in U.S. public schools are third-generation Americans who still are not speaking English at home."
Even if this were true (and it is not) what of it? Most of these homes speak more than one language. In my home we speak Spanish while our first language is English. Most of my African friends speak 3 or 4 languages including English. Experts say U.S. students are falling behind and could suffer in the global marketplace because U.S. students lag in various comparisons, including the average number of languages spoken and the number of exchange students studying abroad. http://www.cafeconlecherepublicans.com/do-todays-immigrants-refuse-to-learn-english/
2. Immigrants are taking our jobs: Governor Scott Walker said he would make sure that our “legal immigration system is based on making our No. 1 priority to protect American workers and their wages.”
Then I say let the immigrants work. Yes, immigration does “take jobs” but it also creates them. What we’d actually like to know then is what is the net effect: and the net effect is undoubtedly beneficial overall. Thus the reason that economists generally believe that immigration is a good thing.
Immigrants historically have done the jobs that the majority culture does not do, and why not? By and large the majority culture has educated itself and innovated to start business so they can employ people to do the "stoop labor". No one who has aspired to go to college and get an education did so just so they could stake and pick tomatoes, or flip burgers. These are necessary and honorable jobs and someone need to do them. Here in NC we tried to get nonimmigrant to take pick our veggies but only 7 American stuck it out in a need of 6,500 jobs. Your veggies will be picked by immigrant hand, either here in the US or outside of it. What is your preference? http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/05/15/north-carolina-needed-6500-farm-workers-only-7-americans-stuck-it-out/
3. There is also the often repeat the myth that immigrant are in the pocket for the Democrats and that, “The Obama administration is doing everything it can to inject new voters in the 2016 election."
Non citizen immigrants cannot vote, only citizens can vote! The president's EA will not produce voters since it is only a stay of deportation with no pathway to legalization. I work with immigrants on a daily basis and have asked them what party they register with. Many tell me that they registered as Democrats because they believe in democracy. When challenged to look at the Democratic platform most of they are appalled by what the Democrats stand for. Some have asked me to help them change their affiliation. Take a guess and the types of organizations that do voter education and registration among immigrants... Yep you guest it liberal ones! What party is mostly known for wanting to deport the parents of immigrant children (US citizens) and block any effort at a reform of our broken immigration system...? Yep you guest it Republicans. So let me ask you, why do you think the few that do register to vote often register Democrat?
