Yes, but allow for a period of learning to become able to read and speak English effectively. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Eureka, IL
It should be their choice. If I were to move to a foreign country I would want to communicate so I would try to learn that language. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Franklin, TN
English is not the official language of the United States, so why should they be required to learn it?. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Elizabethtown, NY
No, But quit providing them translators at tax payer expense. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Rowlett, TX
The immigrants who have the most difficulty learning English are mothers with young children to care for. They may not have the opportunity to attend classes. Also, some people have an easy time learning a second language and others find it more... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Nedrow, NY
