    Should English be made the official language of the USA?

    What are the advantages
    What are the disadvantages

    Should governments (Federal, State/Commonwealth, local) be required to provide forms in non-English languages?

    Should schools be required to teach students in languages other than English.

    It needs to be the "Official " Language because of those who cannot grasp the obvious and refuse to assimilate. BTW if we stop catering to Spanish many illegals would deport themselves.
