Frankly; my biggest problem with more than one dominant language in any society is the potential of said society fracturing along linguistic lines.

That stated: in the public sector aside from public health/safety concerns; the only language that should be used in the USA is English, period. None of this bilingual ballot nonsense, etc.

I agree. Those ballots are just another expense put on the shoulders of our legal citizens.

So you have to call all of them to get the tax information such as rates at which employers pay for employees. When it came time to call Puerto Rico they figured out that they weren't getting anywhere with trying to speak enlgish because everyone spoke spanish. Being the only bi-lingual person in the office i was able to get the information we needed.

So did you ever think that maybe they have ties to other countries that they do business with like in this case.So they need someone to be able to communicate with other branches of there business.I know that some companies have there main offices in different countries all together. so just a thought.

when my husband was in the marines he went to puerto rico, and he told me many people ther spoke english...so please dont try to make me belive that the whole state is spanish speaking only...this is not true.

i never siad that everyone in puerto rico speaks spanish. i siad that when we tried to get tax information that their was no one that spoke english that worked there. You would think that someone would speak both in place like that but there wasnt. and why is always whats happened to your husband do you not have any experiences of your own??

My sister spent five years learning Hebrew so she could move to Israel.

Yes, if Spanish is Mexico's official language, US has a right to it's own.

. Learn English for your benefit and everyone else's.

It has nothing to do with fear of spanish (I'm learning spanish right now to go to Mexico City and Spain). It has to do with assimilating into the culture of the country your in.

Hopefully, she won't have to have any experiences of her own.

You really have not answered any of my questions that I asked.

Sadly your experience has been mirrored tens of thousands of times across the US because of these criminal illegals.

I'm sorry you had to become a victim.
