Instead of paying attention to bilingual education, Congress should concentrate on making everyone proficient in English so that we can all speak and understand each other.

This congressman needs to start supporting legislation that is based on the American language and not Mexican. Does he not get paid to be a United States Congressman. If he wants to represent Mexico then he needs to run for office there.

I was born a German, then became a naturalized American citizen. I learned English in school. It was total immersion. My German is poor. I wish it were better. I do not think, however, that the American tax ought to pay for a bilingual system when total immersion has proven to work time and again.

My grandparents learned to speak English when they came to America. They also insisted that their children speak English as well. Had there been a bilingual program in place at that time, I doubt any of them would be speaking English today.
