Congress needs to make a law saying that English is the official language of the United States, except in Puerto Rico, where Spanish should be the official language (though it is on the local level)

Puerto Rico isn't even on our mainland and I wish they would just go their own way and become independent from us.

If you don't use a language you lose it and most Americans don't have any need to learn a foreign langauge because they would just lose it from non usage.
Why would you need to converse with illegal aliens? I don't think anyone is forcing you to.

I think illegals should go home, yes... they are dirty disgusting bloodsucking creatures. But I think this is a separate issue from being a country that facilitates understanding in multiple languages. I don't really care what language people speak as long as they are legal. Just from personal experience there are plenty of people who are here legally who could use language help.
