Yes, because most speak a bastardized version of Spanish for whatever area of Mexico they happen to be from. We, Americans, speak a bastardized version of English also.

Yes, it CAN be sad...for example, a lot of 'punks' go to great lengths to spray-paint their sign on the side of railroad cars, bridge piers, etc...the artwork is good, but guys, the word is "BARRIO", not "VARRIO"....please!!!!.... Stay in school ! It's "B de burro", not "V de vaca" !!!.....if you're going to vandalize, and you can't vandalize in English, at least vandalize in CORRECT Spanish !....SHEEEESh!!

Amnesty will not pass because it will be political suicide for Democrats.
