Did They Think of this All by Themselves?

Where have I heard this before? Is common sense coming to the E.U.? Somehow I doubt it.

European Union justice and interior ministers agreed Friday that new immigrants to the 25-nation bloc should be required to learn local languages, and to adhere to general "European values" that will guide them toward better integration.

"It's not like we are against immigration," Verdonk said. "If you want to live in the Netherlands, you have to adhere to our rules ... and learn our language."

I guess it's only racist when Americans say it. Every country has and abides by immigration laws. Yet somehow it's evil if the United States enforces it's laws.

EU officials implore new immigrants to learn 'European values'
