Language barriers

I hate the argument that "We in America speak English." Not only does America stretch over two different continents and the majority of the countries in those two continents speak Spanish (followed by English, Portuguese, French and all of the many Native American languages). But also, the United States does NOT have an official language.

I agree that some people today (who were raised to speak English) need to learn better proper English, but that does NOT mean that we shouldn't learn other languages or that "the government cares more about illegals"..
