I believe that they should learn English before coming to America because it shows respect to our country. If they truly want to move here, then they need to show respect.

America is known as the "melting pot" of the world. Meaning that we accept many immigrants into our nation. Why would we want to force them into our ways and disrespect their culture? There are always translators who can help immigrants. This would help with underemployment rates.

translators cost money, wouldn't it be easier just to get it over with?

Well from reading the small amount of text of this ongoing debate, Con is currently winning convincing arguments.

"translators cost money, wouldn't it be easier just to get it over with?" is not a rebuttal and therefore Con's points still stand.

How come when I travel I have to be able to speak their language? I'm just a tourist, not even and immigrant. My mother spent 5yrs trying to get her US citizenship, even had to give up her German one for it. Learned to speak perfect English. If my family had to learn to speak it, so should everyone else's

I personally think immigrants coming to America should have to know basic English but not know how to speak it like it is their first language.
