    Everyone speaks English there. All the road signs are in English, the governmental operations are conducted in English, official documents in English as well as the school system.

    And why does the government not declare English as an official language?

    English and Spanish are the official languages (a lot of Native Americans speak Spanish in NM). To me it's a waste of time and money. There is a lot that goes into making things official and spending that money on making a language official is wasteful imo unless its on a national level which would probably be even more wasteful.

    Do not let American media twist it man, United States even with riots and stupid stuff we are all American at the end of the day. Living here for 22 years coming as a first born American in the family, I go to McDonalds and it does not matter the skin color, ethnicity or person. I treat them with the same respect either way. They do the same. Politics will always breed hatred, rather liberal or conservative. Right or left, it will always seem like division, but deep down there is strength and while there is a 1% the majority all care for each other and in crisis we defend one another. It is something that makes me cherish USA honestly, and with all my travels and going to India, my motherland, Dubai, Prague and what not no where else in the world offers what America does for its citizens, this might be a rant, but a universal language here is just needed. While secondary languages should be taught with the same importance.

North of the wine producers it's essentially Southern Oregon/West Nevada/Idahoan whites. The Southern and Central/Southern Northern portions Spanish speaking populations aren't permanent either. Some have work visas and a lot have anchor babies but the federal government has cracked down a lot. Also Mexican Spanish is like simpleton Spanish imo. It's not very eloquent, I don't mean that offensively either; just most Mexicans speak peasant Spanish as most nowdays are Indian types, most the whiter Mexicans came here long decades and some even hundreds of years ago.

    Chicano's speak English and back in the day (not so much today) they used to look down on immigrants (even Cesar Chavez was highly against illegal immigration and a for a strong border). Most Chicano's (not the gangbanger heroin addicts) are very whitewashed and a lot especially the older lineages are heavily mixed with white.
    Not true, there are many cities where the Spanish is the most spoken language, and by far. And in the worst of case they speak both

    El Paso, Miami, Los ngeles, Laredo, Hialeah, San Antonio, etc, you can go there knowing only Spanish, you will have not problems to communicate.

    In Hialeah (Florida) 96% are Spanish speakers.

    Spanish was the first European language in Florida (of course in many other states), it has been the most spoken language historically (per years). Why in hell should be forbidden??
    Espaa para los espaoles! Spain for the Spaniards!

    Odd for you to say that and think that Cristiano. Thank you for the input though.

    That costs money too, money to print the extra forms, money to pass the bill etc. Its a waste of time to placate to minorities.
