Honestly, I don't think I'd respond very well for someone trying to tell me how I should talk.
Typical arrogant attitude among these anti-Mexican immigrant types.

I would immediately call the police and have you arrested
A lot of police would just laugh at you, and they'd laugh at you in English.

Free speech works both ways you know, someone can tell you that you should learn English any time they want if free speech is going on.

You know you're STILL treating me like I'm not a citizen of my own country based on my stated ethnicity. It's despicable, and unAmerican in itself. The country could use less people like you.

I really wouldn't have a problem if you're a citizen but you got deported to Mexico for a while. It's a nice country actually. I've spent quite a bit of time over there myself.

In Florida we are all mainly bilinguals. There are three official languages: English, Spanish, and Creole. We talk to our children in Spanish or Creole, because we know that they will learn perfect English at school. We want them to be bilingual, and they must be able to speak/write/read perfectly a second language. If you want to be an ordinary monolingual...that`s your decision. Let others learn other languages. The more languages people know, the more educated and prepared they become.

I would immediately call the police and have you arrested if you ever try to reprimand a resident for not speaking English.

That would be considered an assault, and thank god we live in a free country.




You should stop watching Bill O`Reilly and Fox News. BTW


YouTube - Bill O'Reilly Flips Out

I seriously doubt that a police officer would even consider not to follow our laws.


Wow...some states can be very primitive... well, there are 300 million nationals here. By statistics, a small percent has to be like you guys.

I don`t support undocumented people. I just don`t think that`s appropiate to reprimand people because they speak a language other than English. They could be tourists, bilinguals or trilinguals. Would you like to travel to France and have French people reprimanding you that you can`t speak English. If that ever happens to me I would also approach the French police and have the person arrested.

That Malamute needs to get mental help. Telling a U.S. American to get deported is insane and UnAmerican.

You are grasping at straws there; remember also that here in the USA we do indeed have free speech.

If I said something threatening to you, that would be different.

Suffice to say: I put more stock in someone like Malamute then a pro illegal lover.

at the end whites will attack browns if illegal or legal it does not matter this has always been about race and nothing else. I bet if you had a german illegal with blond hair and blue eyes living next to you. You would not give a damm if they were illegal.
