No, it's a fine language. But English is and should remain the OFFICIAL language of America, its government, schools, etc.

Otherwise, speak Spanish all you want. Fine with me.

Well, to the point of the article, such as it is, I and other Americans should not have to yield to the tribalism Latin Americans (let's face it - most illegal aliens are Latin American) bring when they invade uninvited.

Sure, America is a melting pot. Our current immigration laws, the most liberal in the world, recognize and honor this fact. However, the influx of new culture must be controlled, lest we wind up looking like the oligarchies and dictatorships so many flee to come here.
