    Why not? Unlike other Russian-speaking enclaves, the West Sac community is primarily EC-B and Pentecostal.

    Nope, she and her family (EC-B) immigrated to the US as religious refugees. We met when she visited my English-speaking church to improve her language skills.

    Ask her then,
    You put video of Ruskies in Americanski police department speaking Rusky but no way to understand what they saying.
    They help the community maybe but really they say Ha we get Bratva to own West Sacramento and Americanskis so stoopid they pay us to do it.
    We have nice AR-15 ok substitute for Kalishnikov.
    Nye puny mayou chitat, pisat, y gavarite Rusky.
    All I have is imagination comrade.

    The video has English closed captions. Hit the cc button.

    And no West Sac doesn't have a strong "Bratva" presence. As I noted above, the Russian speakers are mostly Evangelical Christian-Baptists and Pentecostals not Russian Orthodox or Jewish.

    When I lived in California I used to visit very often one Russian Baptist church in Sacramento, but my home Russian Baptist church was in San Francisco.

    Sacramento (the capital of California) have a very large Russian community, combined mostly of the second, third, and the fourth generations of Russians.

    Most of the Russian families keep their own language and teach their children that language, but I also met some Russian families there kids spoke only English and no word in Russian. Usually it happen to the third and fourth generations of Russians.

    First wave of Russian immigrants came to US before and during WWI.

    Second wave came after October Bolshevik revolution in Russia in 1917.

    Third wave came after WWII but numbers were small.

    The fourth wave (mine wave) came in 70's, and my family and I settled with our relatives in NJ. This was the immigration permitted by USSR authorities at that time.

    So guys, what you think, which wives better, American or Russian? :)

    I'm guessing in Jersey there are plenty of Russian speakers in the landscaping business. In Metro Sacramento, at least for the first ten or so years, the Russian speakers concentrated in auto repair.
