INTEGRATION FAILURE

MIGRANTS DON'T INTEGRATE IN THE UK & CR

The UK press reports research that shows they often live in ghettos, some as large as cities. There, they speak their own language, keep the motherland's customs and have schools dominated by them.

Blame is put on racism by the left. The right demands language and culture tests.

Think about Gringos in CR. We cluster in certain communities. Many don't: learn Spanish, socialise almost entirely with other Gringos and mainly deal with Ticos in shops and as help.

Ticos live with family groups are mainly brought up as Catholics and have little reason to integrate with gringos, except commercially.

The difference here is that the majority of Gringos are better off than most Ticos. That is rarely the case in the UK. Either way, wealth imbalances can cause resentment.
