Shades of Things to Come?

There was a time – until a few years ago – when immigrants to the United States were expected to conform to the country’s culture, and that meant learning English.

All that has changed. Now Americans are expected to conform to the culture of immigrants. The Crestwood School District (Dearborn Heights, MI) seeks employees, not just teachers, who are fluent in English and Arabic. Dial 2 for Spanish (soon dial 3 for Arabic?), the government printing forms in Spanishand other languages. companies printing information for products in English and Spanish and Univision and Telemundo have dramatically reduced the need for immigrants – legal and illegal – to learn English. Democrats are working to eliminate the need to understand English from citizenship requirements.

Here’s a story from a UK paper (where else?) about an Alabama woman who legally immigrated to the US and is having difficulty getting a job because she doesn’t speak Spanish. She lives in an area that is now 30 percent Hispanic and has become “a stranger in her own country.”

A white middle class Alabama woman says she has been rejected by prospective employers because she doesn’t speak Spanish.

Sandra Langlois, a native of Albertville, Alabama, told CNN the changing demographics brought on by illegal immigration has left working class whites like herself struggling to find gainful employment.

Langlois, a 42-year-old woman who as a child immigrated to the United States legally from Germany, said: ‘It’s kind of, really, discrimination. If you’re not here legally, then you need to go ahead and go back home… They need to come over here the right way. Don’t sneak over. Don’t stay here.’

The influx of immigrants – both legal and illegal – has made it harder for native-born Americans who don’t speak Spanish to find jobs in areas of the country that have grown more ethnically diverse in recent years.

Albertville is a town that reflects the demographic changes that are having a major economic impact in wide swaths of the country.

Its population numbers 21,462 – with 30 per cent of those Hispanic. Nearly 3,800 locals were born outside the US.

Though Albertville is known as the home of the Mueller Company, the fire hydrant-manufacturing giant, it is also the place where poultry processing plants have come in and hired a labor force made up predominantly of immigrants.

Locals like Langlois say the large immigrant population has made it harder for those here legally to find work.

    Until some employers who hire illegal aliens start losing their businesses and/or face jail time, nothing will change.

    Germany’s second largest bank, restructures — http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-09-29/pain-spreads-germanys-second-biggest-bank-commerzbank-scraps-dividend-fires-20-workf — Lays off 20% of workforce.

    This is significant. Unlike here where ‘at will’ hiring practices hold sway, laying someone off in Germany is quite a task, especially is they are a member of a union. A leading edge signpost something bigger is coming. Remember the last depression started in Europe then spread here.

    Precisely…nothing will change.

    IF Hillary wins, the America of 2 years from now will be a disaster. Trump is the reaction of half the country to that prospect. The OTHER half of America THINKS they want Hillary’s vision to come true…they have NO idea.

    Shades of shit that is already here:

    Investigators may probe Cascade Mall suspect’s citizenship status, voting record

    http://www.king5.com/news/local/investigators-may-probe-cascade-mall-suspects-citizenship-status-voting-record/327490798

    “Federal sources confirm to KING 5 that Cetin was not a U.S. citizen, meaning legally he cannot vote. However, state records show Cetin registered to vote in 2014 and participated in three election cycles, including the May presidential primary.”
    —-

    But you know voter fraud is just a myth created by right wing nuts.

    Another job for Weasel Jim @ FBI to not take an interest in.

    #6 – yep, that’s the latest one. Most likely, it will be something like:

    “Ibrahim Mohammed Abdalla, a resident of Jersey City, killed the conductor, then commandeered the train, crashing it into the terminal at full speed…all the while screaming Alahu Akbar. A motive remains unclear.”

    The MSM has been feverishly investigating Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, her role in the Benghazi cover-up, pay-to-play schemes with the Clinton Foundation, her questionable health, the Russian uranium deal.

    After months of intense and unbiased journalistic investigation, they have reached the following startling and groundbreaking conclusion:

    20 years ago, Donald Trump might called someone Miss Piggy.
