Becoming an American

From Fjordman:
[...] Being brutally candid means recognizing that the huge and largely uncontrolled inflow of unskilled Latino workers into the United States is increasingly sabotaging the assimilation process. [...]

Control the flow so that those that choose to immigrate can become Americans, and that those who choose not to become Americans are barred. Yes, yes, I know that Mexico is part of America, and technically Mexicans are Americans, too, but for purposes of this argument Americans means citizens of the United States, and Mexican means citizen of Mexico.

Read this article by Robert Mandel, a high school teacher. Then consider this question from Fjordman:

Will immigration continue to foster national pride and strength or will it cause more and more weakness and anger?
