A Change For the Worse in my Hometown

Here is the reason I wrote the following: http://www.twincities.com/ci_15461519?IADID=Search-www.twincities.com-www.twincities.com. It was originally directed at the article preceding this one, but since that is now archived, I linked to the most recent article.

Why push an issue that is not existent? If we spend $0 on multilingual materials, what is the point of making an inflammatory law which would have zero actual effect?
Furthermore, very few of our ancestors came to this country speaking English, and those that did eventually overthrew the English and established the great country we live in today. It is not that immigrants should not have to learn English, but that we should make it easier for immigrants to live in our society. America is strong because it has historically been accepting to immigrants. As is proclaimed in the statue of liberty:
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”
We should not abandon this basic principle which has led to such greatness within our nation.
