No, it's quite the opposite.

As I have commented on many times in the past: outside of Latin America or Spain; Spanish is not an important language---------if anything, it ranks below French let alone the lingua franca of the world AKA English.

Why I say that an English speaking Mexican citizen can be understood the world over whereas if he spoke Spanish; he would be out of luck in even the Philippines (English/Tagalog)---------despite that nation being a Spanish colony till 1898 (100 years ago) and it still following many aspects of Hispanic culture.

This is America we speak English maybe not as proper as you would like but for the most part you can understand me, If I were to come to your house and you always take your shoes off when you enter it and I dont, should you change for my benefit or should I as a guest follow your rules and remove my shoes. Why should we have to learn their language, they want to come here and live amongst us, then if they cannot communicate it is not our fault, we did not make a raid across the border and kidnap them and force them to come here they want to be here. (Hell they sneak in all the time) they should want to learn the language and if not then go home.

Who cares about internationally (even though Spanish is still important internationally) this is about America, nowhere else. Only 1.6 million people speak French at home in the United States. however, 34.5 million people speak Spanish at home in the United States.

Please provide proof of your claim that 34.5 million people speak Spanish at home in the U.S. Do not include illegal aliens either as they don't count in this country in regards to language usage by Americans in this country.

Which still does not change the fact that Spanish is not a very important tongue. Besides: the pendulum here in the USA is swinging against this multiculturalism nonsense as we speak.

America: love it or leave it.

Says the U.S. government.

The illegals may not be Americans, but they do very much influence the way things work.

I guess that's why many states are starting to require documents in both Spanish and English? It's the second most important language in America is Spanish.

And it's laughable to think that multiculturalism is going down. By 2050, Whites will be the minority.

DREAM on.

As it is: many Hispanics are indeed White and; since it is starting to be politically incorrect to be Latino due to growing prejudice against them courtesy of the illegal aliens-----------more and more Mestizos are going to starting claiming 'White' out of self preservation. Too; the birthrate is plunging among at least Americans of Mexican, etc. heritage.

Final point: at least here in Arizona; those illegal alien losers are still leaving. The anecdotal evidence is all around me

Whatever you want to tell yourself. I don't see any proof from a reliable source, just you saying what you want because you don't like immigrants.
