    Brilliant quote. This could have been said many times before; riots in Paris a few years back, London bombings. It is rarely immigration that is the issue, but that of integration. Does anyone in the UK wonder why the US doesn’t have such problems with Latino communities? I would venture to guess that it is a desire to intergrate and become American and an overwhelming culture with forces immigrants (or rewards?) to integrate.
