“As an immigrant to the U.S., I am not surprised by the strong support for official English among Hispanics,” said Mr. Mujica, who came here from Chile in 1965. “The majority of immigrants understand that coming to a new country means learning the language of that country. While individuals are free to speak the language of their choice, they cannot expect the government to provide information in every foreign language.”

As a descendant of Spanish-speaking Americans who never immigrated to the United States, I must remind Mauro Mujica that Spanish is not a foreign language–it was the language of people made citizens of the United States by annexation in the Mexican-American War.  I guess it’s convenient for Latinos who come from outside the US to want English as the official language.
