Apparently not, because you would prefer to enable Spanish speakers to avoid the hard but necessary work of learning English.

I don't think it's my job to schoolmarm Spanish speaking Americans from Spanish speaking ancestry who live in Spanish speaking places that have been Spanish speaking parts of America since they day they became part of America. It's offensive and ridiculous this idea that we must withhold Spanish from people because it might result in them using Spanish instead of conforming to *your* language. I think Americans ought to learn Math too, but I don't think we need to make people pass a math test in order to be included in society. As if these people owe you something...as if you are entitled to decide what language other people speak based ONLY on what is best for you per
