If we a duplicate of everything in spanish, why not the hundreds of other languages as well? Not doing that would be discriminating against people who only speak Korean, French, etc etc etc right?

Here's an idea, make Iowa like some parts of Florida where spanish is the primary language. Now that would make our illegal friends feel welcome~!
