Circumstances will dictate the immigrants learning English. Unfortunately, by the second and third generation no one speaks the heritage language any longer. What's the problem!. 4 years ago from a Libertarian in Tempe, AZ
People who have llegal access to this nation under our current ImmigrationSystem should be encouraged to learn English. It will be difficult for the elederly, but my grandparents,while fluent in their native tongues, were able to learn to communicate... 4 years ago from a Republican in Bristol, RI
Yes, it is the language of our countries most important documents. We should also remove multilingual translations and the government should provide free language courses. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Waite Park, MN
Not unless the US makes English its official language. If that happens then yes. 4 years ago from a Libertarian in Lewisburg, PA
If they want to work here and make a home here, they should need to have some path to learn English. It's great to celebrate diversity, but without a minimum level of common understanding (language) it's difficult for societies to function. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Coyote, CA
It should not be required but encouraged. Part of moving to a new country is not only bringing along your traditions but also adopting new ones. Its a melting pot, not stew with Italy here and Mexico there. Everyone must blend together. 4 years ago from a Libertarian in Corpus Christi, TX
Yes, and demonstrate fluency to earn citizenship. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Candler, NC
Yes, and remove multilingual translations from government documents and services AND offer free / affordable English courses. 4 years ago from a Republican in Lexington, VA
If they seek U.S. citizenship, they should still be required to be conversant and capable of reading and writing in English. Otherwise, they should be encouraged to learn English and have available resources that they can access. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Newcastle, WY
Absolutely. This country used to be a melting pot where the different cultures "alloyed" to become a strong hybridized society. Now immigrants seem to want to come , but keep their own cultures and this is dividing this countrymaking everything... 4 years ago from a Republican in Brentwood, NY
No, but encourage English education and provide access to ESL programs. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Highland Park, NJ
