Don't you see the ridiculousness of this? How in the world are you going to ensure that every language that is represented by voters is available to them at polling?

I said none of those things. I said, learning English, becoming part of the American culture is not too much to ask someone who comes here to have a better life. What is better here? Why don't they find it in a country that has Spanish as the native language? You want something, a job, a better life, opportunities for you and your children, better cable programming...there is a price to pay for that. Learning English is a great way to show you are willing to do your part as an American.
