While much of the immigration debate focuses on financial issues - whether illegal immigrants hurt or help the economy - the missing link to understanding Americans' anxiety over the issue is the reality that we are failing to build a citizenry that loves America first.

Today, hyphenated Americans put other countries and affiliations first, and they drive a wedge into the heart of "one nation." A recent poll of Hispanics in America by Investor's Business Daily shows that 64% consider themselves "mostly Hispanic," but that only 15% see themselves as "mostly American." The survey further reveals that 31% speak "only Spanish" in the home, while just 6% speak "only English." Finally, 69% of respondents said they lived in predominantly Hispanic neighborhoods.
