Article doesn't indicate what policies would be different, that's why I asked you.

I don't remember a government telling me what language to speak. No, I only remember what my parents taught me for language. They had to do the same thing as children and their forbearers did the same thing. Now all those people who fail to even attempt to learn our language don't need any special treatment since all the earlier immigrants (mostly legal) learned the language as a part of wanting to be like the rest of us.

Some people just can't realize that illegal is a word that means the person who is one of them is a criminal for illegal (there that word is again) entry. I would say that most of those people are the ones who accept all the words about collectivism that come from the mouth of our Glorious Leader.

That isn't what he was saying! Yes, government in Md country is being conducted in English but also conducted in other languages with bi-lingual workers and documents in multi-language documents. It's a waste of tax dollars and discriminating against native English speakers in hiring practices.

The objection is mainly having to provide langauge services to illegal immigrants most whom are Spanish speakers.

I see it won't be a problem for you on a national scale.
