Illegal Immigration ALIPAC - Voters Reject Obama's call for Bilingualism Barack Obama said yesterday that instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English, Americans need to make sure your child can speak Spanish. A national telephone survey conducted last month by Rasmussen Reports found that U.S. voters overwhelmingly disagree with the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Eighty-three percent (83%) place a higher priority on encouraging immigrants to speak English as their primary language. Just 13% take the opposite view and say it is more important for Americans to learn other languages.
