Why is it so much to ask of specifically Mexican immigrants to learn English?

Many of the Mexicans in American are illegal and they should not even be here and they are breaking the law, so why are we accommodating their language? The more we do this the lazier they have to be. In the late 1800s and early 1900s many non-English speaking immigrants, from Asia and Europe, came to the U.S. and they learned English because that is our language that we speak in America, not Spanish. I think that these immigrants who want to be here so badly and break our laws, use our country’s services (schools, welfare etc) could at LEAST show our country a little bit of respect by learning our language. Why is that so much to ask, I mean it is not like they have to learn English and were formerly speaking Chinese. Spanish and English are very similar so why is it so much to ask for them to just learn to speak English.
gopher…I know Spanish. I took it for 4 years, but it is not the language of America
Stony I never said the were lazy but they are being lazy by refusing to learn English, most of the European and Asian immigrants who came here in the 1800s and 1900s learned English as quickly as possible. Why not the Mexicans?
