Protecting the national identity

According to the New York Times, there is a movement afoot among residents of Maine of French descent to regain their heritage. Members of the legislature occasionally hold discussions in (Acadian) French, various citizens say the Pledge of Allegiance and sing the National Anthem in French. Clearly, insofar as we have an obligation to protect a certain image of the national identity, in this, a midterm election year, something must be done about this. I'm not sure what, perhaps a fence on the Maine border?

Unless Maine is attacked by a foreign adversary, in which case these Frenchies will cave like they did to the Nazi's, no fence is necessary. Vive la maine!!!
