Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In Europe, assimilation is understood to mean stripping the immigrant of all traces of their previous identity.

Still today, in countries around Europe you see that dynamic at work, or at least advocated by a sizeable political minority.

I think in the US you're starting to develop some of the same, with the "English Only" movement, and so on.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
