I can understand not agreeing with laws requiring everything to be in Spanish, but why is it bad that they would opt to broadcast the debate in Spanish on their own?

Naw, Republicans would rather hire illegals to landscape their million-dollar mansions. Just ask Flip Romney, he was for the spanish-language debates before he was against them.

The candidate spoke in English. It was simply a forum focused on our country's large Hispanic population, broadcast on an American Hispanic network. Get your facts straight and calm down.

And it was translated to Spanish. That in itself was ignorant and wrong because anyone who should even care about the debate should be able to speak and read English. Can't? Tough then is what I say. BTW, you might want to stop showing your pro-illegal colors there.

^ how is having a debate translated into Spanish pro-illegal? You know there are many legal hispanics in the US as well.

And they should be able to speak and read English. If they don't then tough luck for them. They should not have been translated into Spanish for any reason and it is and was wrong no matter what anyone says. You know the Hispanics would have been having a hissy fit if they would have translated the forum into Vietnamese or something. This is absolutely disgusting. On e would think that we were already Mexico. Oh yeah, we are.
