Do you need to know English to be American? No, but it's a matter of respect for the country that had provided you and your family with a home, job, and most importantly, all of those government handouts. Wave the American flag? No, you can fly your flag, but both should be flown for the same reason as listed above, and the American flag is flown higher. I don't know any illegals that are patriotic, I would love to see that. But using your logic, there are aloooooot of pendejos in this country, because there are alot of folks sick and tired of seeing illegals streaming in. Just follow the criteria and shut up already.
