If we we're to eliminate English and make Esperanto the official language, I bet these same people would bitch and moan about it.

If I decided to live in another country, I would learn whatever language is used there out of respect for the people and their culture.

If you want to live in the US, learn English. Period.

Might as well make everything in every language possible because we might "discriminate" someone. Fucking pathetic, they were just looking for easy money like most Hispanics do.

Yes Americans need to remember since they are under English rule they need to speak English. Their English lords and masters demand it.

You're such an idiot. There is NO official language of the United States. Until there is, STFU in all the languages of the world.

America was the place to go when others needed a fresh start. Now it's a pos because no one stands up for us.

DENVER (CBS4)- A group of Hispanic custodians at the Auraria Campus in downtown Denver are claiming they are victims of discrimination.

They’ve filed a complaint against the campus operator that could be reviewed by a federal judge.

What started out as a miscommunication over a schedule change for employees working the graveyard shift has become a full investigation by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

“Too many things have happened to me there that I don’t even know how to explain it,” said Auraria custodian Bertha Ribota.

Like the United States, Australia has no "official" language. People have pointed out Colorado has English as the official language. It is just a question of whose rules take priority e.g state or Federal.

My personal opinion if you move to a country you must learn the language spoken there and not expect to get pandered to in your own language.

That is right, if it wasn't for states like colorado, America would not have an official language. It is the states that have felt the need to take action.

How is society to function without a cohesive language?

Logic here. 10 learn English 300 Million learn Spanish?

A no brainer. Lawyer needs to get one.

Re: Lawyer: English-only is "discriminatory."
In Mexico, some of the native people esp. in Chiapas in the south don't speak Spanish. They are members of cultures that were there before the Spanish arrived, and they still speak those old "Indian" languages. Do they get to have official documents translated into their native languages? Do they get to require government offices to speak to them in a language other than Spanish?

Nope, didn't think so. :)
