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.

But it's not so much the lack of assimilation as it is the negative social benefit on top. The Amish haven't done much assimilation, but they're not a drain on society. They just want to be left alone, which is fine and dandy.

But if people come to America to live in an enclave that doesn't assimilate, and simply wants the American taxpayer to pay them to live here, why is that a good thing? And why does the left declare anyone who dares to ask the question to be racist? The answer is obvious. They don't want to answer it.
