Almost the exact same things were said of my Jewish immigrant forbearers.

And I bet your forbearers assimilated. They learned, or at least their children learned, to read and speak English. They didn't demonstrate to have ballots printed in their native language. They didn't harangue the school board about having classes talk in their mother tongue.

Yes your forbearers kept some traditions of the homeland just like my forbearers, but for the most part, the became part of the great melting pot of America. Today, not so much.
