I agree, tinman and they should go to the back of the line in their own country and process first those who never entered illegally but waited for their turn in their homeland to come legally.

Welcome to the spin world of the pro-illegals, tinman. Just like I never said that English was our "official" language.

So, how does a "national" language differ from an "official" language? If English were to, tomorrow, become our "official" language even though today it is merely our "national" language, what would change?

It is the language of our government.

Looks like some of their chapter presidents even enjoy it!

Still waiting for the proof of the original claim regarding the ACLU supporting the exchange of child porn. So far I've seen nothing.

An "official" language would allow us not to have to print all kinds of government documents in several different languages. It is a huge tax savings. Not to mention that since English has been our national language since its founding it should take its rightful place as "official" which is an identifying part of our heritage and culture.

Could you provide a cite for this huge tax savings?

You'll find our nation wasn't founded at once, and it absorbed territory from other influences. As I said, specific to my state we have a line item that no language is to be regarded as primary here - The 1850 Federal Census showed 90% spoke Spanish.

We print documents in other languages to support our population. At this point it doesn't "save" any taxes to change that. If you want English as the "official" language, get it passed through Congress.

To put it back on you, I don't have to accept that definition if I don't want to, that is my "right"...
