    Santorum: English must be adopted by Puerto Rico


    "As in any other state, you have to comply with this and any federal law. And that is that English has to be the main language," Santorum told El Vocero, a San Juan newspaper. "There are other states with more than one language as is the case in Hawaii, but to be a state in the United States, English has to be the main language."

    Democratic Rep. Pedro Pierluisi, Puerto Rico's non-voting delegate to Congress, said today on CNN that Santorum has a "narrow and limiting view of what America is all about."

    Santorum supports Puerto Rico statehood with English language condition - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Is this the way to get votes for the GOP? Telling people that they have to speak English?

    Unfortunately for Santorum, there are no such laws on the books.

    Unfortunately for Santorum, there are no laws that state you must speak English in this country.

    If they want to be a state, yes they should speak English. If they don't they can speak Klingon if they so choose.

    There's no rule that says that, theres a shit load of Hispanics in Texas, New Mexico and California that don't speak a lick of English, maybe they should be severed from the union.

    Rick Santorum should fuck off to Saudi Arabia with his zealout backwards views.
