What does this have anything to do with illegal immigration? It does not.

And an uneducated one as well. The phone service never asks to press a button if you prefer English.

If business owners have a right to accommodate foreign language-speaking customers, they should also have a right NOT to accommodate them. I do agree that this is not directly related to illegal immigration. However, we do know that the primary beneficiaries are indeed illegal aliens.

The question is why would they if they know how to speak English? Most Hispanic Americans are very proficient in English so why would they need to talk to some business person in Spanish or need instructions in Spanish over the phone?

Since the majority of Spanish speaking immigrants are LEGAL, your statement would be incorrect.
