I think everyone has the right to speak whatever language they choose, but what bothers me the most is not being able to find a job in El Paso if you are not bilingual. I grew up in El Paso and it hasn't always been this way. I guess it's not how good you are but who you know nowadays. I went into a local store and the lady couldn't help me because she didn't speak English. What is wrong with this picture? I have to speak Spanish to get a job but she didn't have to speak English? WOW

Habla Espanol Numero Dose...basically every 800# across our country says that now so kinda tells you something.

Everyone does realize if your here legally and did everything right we offer free classes to teach you english?

Stop the double standards because mexico doesn't offer that. Your documents at the city hall are not in english like we do in spanish and english.

Like others said if you go to another country its not their responsibility to make everything in your language.

ohh hush this is also a country where many languages are spoken..therefore english is a must but you can still get a nice job even if english is not your main language.....

The United States does not have an official language, although Approximately 337 languages are spoken or signed by the population, of which 176 are indigenous to the area English is the common language.

English is the primary language in the United States of America. If we go to Italy do you expect them to speak English just because you are there?

THIS HIT A SOFT SPOT ON ME, I'M TIRED OF GOING INTO A PLACE AND THEY TELL ME...YOU SPEAK SPANISH...BECAUSE THEY CAN'T UNDERSTAND OR SPEAK ENGLISH. DON'T WANT TO SPEAK ENGLISH THAN GO BK WHERE YOUR SPANISH IS WELCOME WITH OPEN ARMS THIS IS NOT MEXICO THIS IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, YOU WANT TO WORK/LIVE HERE THAN FOLLOW THE SAME RULES/LAWS WE HAVE...When Mexico was a safe town to visit, I enjoyed it, but I gave them the respect and spoke their native language..so I deserve the same respect

Just tell them that you prefer to speak English. I am bilingual, but prefer English. I also give credit for the ones that attempt to speak English. I am sure if they continue to practice. Soon they will be fluent. Spanish is my first language. I am proud to practice my Spanish.

Because, believe it or not, there are lots of places outside of El Paso where English is still the spoken language.

Why would they need to speak English?

SO THEY CAN GET IN ALL THE LINES; CHEESE LINE ,HUD LINE ,WELFARE LINE, LONE STAR LINE, FREE EDUCATION LINE. OOPSS, THEY ARE ALREADY THERE, EL DIARIO TOLD THEM.

Because this is the United States and English is our language.
