    changed but the idea
    has not.

    U.S. is the 5th largest Spanish speaking
    country (Department of Translation Studies)
    Of the top 15 languages learned in
    the u.s. over half of the students
    were learning half. ("Languages
    in the United States.").
  • 7. Common Misconceptions
    A study in 2007 by the Public Policy Institute of California found that immigrants who arrived in the state between 1990 and 2004 increased wages of native workers by an average of 4% (“PPIC”)
    That immigrant workers want our jobs. Most dirty jobs are done by immigrants.
