What incentive are we giving Mexicans to let go of their own culture and join with ours?

Many people see the problem with Mexican immigrants as this. Mexicans are not wanting to let go of their culture and join with ours. So here's a question: What incentive are we giving Mexicans to let go of their own culture and join with ours?

what culture is the american culture ?? and why must the mexicans give up their culture ? ?

I said on linkup when someone suggested that the USA is losing it's culture .. that the only culture it can claim is the American Indian one .. otherwise the USA is proud of it's mixture of cultures .. it shouts abroad how it is the melting pot of all nations ..

from my discussions on another blog, some would call it the "Anglo-Saxon culture."

of course that was by someone who didn't take into account that most immigrants to the United States were not from the Anglo-Saxon region. But his point was in regards to the structure of the government. He feared that somehow an influx of Mexicans and their "culture" would somehow destroy that Anglo-Saxon culture. Oh and this person writes for the World Net Daily, your very own "Anglo-Saxon Freeman's" favorite news source. ;)

it's ironic really that so many Americans are so insecure about their culture, so afraid about what happens when someone new comes in.....

I think it's because the USA is a very young country and it was not all that long ago that the pioneers stepped on those shores to take over the land. I guess that most are afraid the same thing will happen.

One thing that I find interesting to think about is that when the USA became a nation, it only covered the very east coast. It was not until the mexican war that the west was brought in line. The mexicans / american indians, lived in California and the western and south western areas for 100's of years. To them the land is their forebears .. and it was not that long ago that it was taken away .. Is it any wonder that they still migrate toward it ??
