    Teaching rights is good.

    Teaching responsibilities as well is even better.

    America, and all the people living here fare better when immigrants (legal or illegal) work hard on their responsibility to become Americanized. That includes speaking English, and adopting American customs and courtesies, especially in any job that deals with the public.

    The immigrant needs to change to American ways, not demand that Americans change to accept foreign cultures. If they wish to keep "old country traditions" at home, that is their choice, but the most successful immigrants have historically demanded that their children adapt the their new homeland's ways, not preserve the old.

    Best wishes for success in the greatest country on earth!
