Immigrant who can't speak English feels alienated by US



The Washington Post published a touching story about an immigrant who feels alienated because she can't speak English well. She feels "vetted" all the time by evil Americans because of her lack of ability to speak our language.

My one wish is for Americans to appreciate the degree to which my mom and the millions of other stuttering, thick-accented immigrants in menial jobs have already been vetted, and continue to be vetted, every day. They’ve been stripped of their personalities, skills, jokes, opinions, dignity and dreams by the language barrier. They’ve been questioned about who they are and what they’re doing in this country — by police, store clerks, employers, customers and the ghosts of their past. They’ve been vetted since they set foot on U.S. soil, they’re vetted every time they open their mouths, and they’ll continue to be vetted, in an extreme fashion, for the rest of their lives.

They're not being "vetted". They simply don't learn English well enough to be understood. You certainly don't see police trying to "vet" immigrants, since we have nearly zero enforcement of our immigration laws anymore. If his Mom is frustrated with her inability to speak English well enough to be understood, why doesn't she try to learn it better?

After 26 years in this country, she still speaks with a heavy accent, misplaces tenses, mumbles. She doesn’t know the Pledge of Allegiance.

And by the way, if you want to become an American, is it too much to ask to learn the Pledge of Allegiance too?

Immigrants respect and cherish this land, not because they’re immigrants, but in spite of it. In spite of being reduced to Trojan horses, rabid dogs and poisoned Skittles. In spite of the Trumps in their lives. In spite of all the vetting.

Ah! I knew Donald Trump was to blame.

This is all part of the continuing propaganda campaign to tell us all immigrants are virtuous and if you question their lack of assimilation, you are racist. Perhaps the slickest part of this bit of agit/prop was that the immigrant in question was Ukranian.

To my knowledge, we don't have large pockets of unassimilated Ukranian language areas in the United States. We do have large pockets of unassimilated spanish language areas in the country, but perhaps the WaPo thought it would be more politically correct to show an immigrant who won't learn our language who is European in origin.

California to release "non-violent" rapists, shooters, hostage takers


Whenever a proposition comes on the ballot in California to release criminals from jail, it always passes, since the criminals already outside of jail outnumber the law abiding citizens. That's why it will come as no surprise when California voters vote for Proposition 57 which will release "non-violent" criminals. The only problem is that California has a very expansive definition of "non-violent" in its legal code:
