Immigrants to U.S. must learn English

Immigrants to U.S. must learn English

  • Updated

In response to Luis Rivera's Sept. 12 letter, it sounded as though Sarah Palin and Donald Trump or probably, I'm guessing, anyone else who thinks immigrants in this country should speak English is wrong. Everyone knows this country is made up of close to 300 million people, and most are of immigrant descent of one kind or another. These immigrants (which I might add were legal) came from over 40 different countries, England, Ireland, Yugoslavia, Norway, Africa, Japan, Russia, Sweden, China, etc.. Can you imagine the mess it would be if all the immigrants who came here over the past 200 years kept their own language and we hired teachers in our public schools to teach these immigrants their own native language? As the techies say, LOL.
