Should Illegal aliens be required to learn English in order to become a resident in the United States?
I always hear the same argument that America doesn’t have an official language. It does, however, have a national language; which is English.
Here’s another fact, out of the 50 states, 30 have made English their official language.
The English language isn’t racist. It’s what we speak here in America. If you want to come here, you need to speak to where we can understand you and you can understand us.
Language is really one of the few things that holds a nation together.
Yes, Mr. Brokaw.

-white leftists that can only speak one language
And to answer your question, no. Illegal aliens go to the back of the line for cutting in front of the legal immigrants.
Yea if you cut in the lunch line in school, you got raped in the stall. The United States is much less harsher than students.
Moral of the story: This whole issue isn’t racist. It’s about how illegals ignore rules and principles because they feel they have a sense of entitlement and a right to enter the country without going through the standard process because they have some kind of a “higher priority” than other immigrants which is prejudice and selfish. It isn’t fair for immigrants trying to enter legally to be pushed away due to illegal immigrants getting more priority over them. Wall will be effective, if it doesn’t, then the public will see it and will make trump less popular among voters, including conservatives. And isn’t that what the left wants? To have Trump fail? If it’s so ineffective then why not let him fail? It’s because they know it will be effective but they can’t tolerate Trump getting credit for something.
I would assume. How else they gonna pass required English and civics tests?
Illegal should be sent home.
Exactly! And if and on if they self-deport are they ever consider for the opportunity to return. No illegal should EVER. Be eligible to be a citizen, the best they should be a leader to hope for is to be a permanent resident, never eligible for any assistance.
If you want ANY of those benefits, then leave now, and re-enter legally.
While that would be nice, we wouldn’t be the land of the free if we forced citizens to learn English.
Illegals get citizenship?
They can if they apply for asylum.
Huh, get citizenships? They can get a visa but the will still be llegal.
Then they can apply for citizenship. Maybe I’m wrong. I’ve never been illegal.
If it so easy why are there 11 million illegals? Let the whole world in and have a mass citizenship party! Better yet claim the whole world are American citizens all at once.
You are not trying hard enough!
Lol! Never said it was easy. I was just answering the question.
Ron ... the current estimate is 22 million illegals. Not one of them should EVER be eligible for citizenship OR any government assistance.
Illegals should self-deport and apply for legal status if they EVER want citizenship.
How could this be enforced on people that do not have legal documentation to be here?
Az .. illegal aliens have NO right to be here.
I’m asking how to enforce something onto people who are hiding from the government.
Some English would be beneficial. I don't think you need to be totally fluent though.
No, they should be deported .
I do not think they have to learn English, you know free countrie and all but I do think the basic knowledge of English (the majority speaking language in the USA) is important to get by in America.
Local ... you realize that you’re not helping legal immigrants with that pathetic position, right?
Most definitely I’d love to learn Spanish but why should a American citizen not be able to speak our primary language when they can only benefit from it?
Illegals shouldn't be able to become citizens ever. For anyone wanting to come here they should learn English.
Rather, they should have to learn English.
Yes yes yes yes hell yes, fvck yes, sht yes, holy hell yes, yes, ye. Yes....learn English or gtfo! Assimilate to us....you know how much time, resources and money can be save just on only printing docs in English? Language barriers? Time? Resources?
I wish my mom would. She's been here almost 30 years and she can barely speak any English.
Yes. It’s called ASSIMILATION.
I think that when all citizens of a nation share a language, then a sense of community can be sustained.
Having one neighborhood speak only English while the neighborhood next door only speaks Spanish will quite clearly result in cultural divides and create an in cohesive society.
The United States does not have an official language.
Yes, but it is the most used language in the United States
As well as the language most learned to achieve success... worldwide.
It is considered the primary language
