ONE NATION, ONE LANGUAGE?

It's good to see that Washington is finally facing up to the problems of illegal immigration. On Monday, during his speech to the nation, President Bush pointed out several items regarding the responsibilities of immigrants.

On assimilation, Bush spoke of the need to learn the English language: Via Michelle Malkin

“. . . we must honor the great American tradition of the melting pot, which has made us one Nation out of many peoples. The success of our country depends upon helping newcomers assimilate into our society, and embrace our common identity as Americans. Americans are bound together by our shared ideals, an appreciation of our history, respect for the flag we fly, and an ability to speak and write the English language.”

I am pleased to see President Bush leading the way on this issue.
