Sorry but in California the stupid State that it is. A lot of this is because of illegal immigration, whether you believe it or not. And if we the voters let it continue, it will only get worse.


The only way to stop this ridiculous madness for the sake of future generations of American's is by our vote!


I hate to admit this, but I know some Hispanic's who really feel they are entitled to *****, and I will leave it at that. You create a mess, and it will only widen and spread, until it is stopped.

California is overrun with illegals, homeless and criminals, thanks to the Democrats who have ruined this state.

Illegal immigration and high numbers of legal immigration from one lingual group has created this situation. What happened to diversity?
Actually it has more to do with fear & ignorance on most White American's beliefs. You also hear a lot of Spanish in Florida too yet their 2 largest Hispanic groups are Cubans & Puerto Ricans which one are Legal Americans and residents of the US.

In Miami during the 1970's xenophobic whites tried to establish a "English only" ordinance that would prohibit any other language except for English being published in Government. It was defeated at the polls and now Miami has 3 official languages , English , Spanish & Haitian Creole.

Illegal immigration hasn't created this situation in Florida so I really see it's a xenophobic reaction instead of a Illegal one.

NOT a thing wrong with making English ONLY the main language of the US.

No not at all unless you want to keep the US as a mono-lingual nation forever. Immigrants have been coming to America forever & in case you didn't notice it a lot of our cities and states are named in Spanish.
The xenophobic fear about keeping the English language is that ! Xenophobic and you can't avoid Spanish on a Continent where the vast majority of speakers speak Spanish !

Those who came to this Country legally and with pride came to America long ago.


Those who believe in not following laws of the land, and willing to break them, that is another story is it not.


Nothing wrong with making English our Language. Those who were ancestors as my Italian Ancestors who came to this Country legally by the way. Learned English right away and were proud to have done so. They still spoke Italian in the home and around family. But when out spoke English.


And what is the fear of not having English as our Language, I know many people who immigrated here legally that are of European decent, guess what they speak English. And still speak their Mother Language.


Anyone of any nationality can speak there Mother Tongue , but please learn ENGLISH! WHAT IS THE FEAR IN THAT.

Spanish ain't important outside of Spain or LatAm. English IS important everywhere that matters. Period. English is the language of money, pilots, diplomats and so on in 2016.

Many "Hispanics" have a chip on their shoulder thing; kinda like many Southern anglo white people, some American Indians, hood rat Blacks and so on.
