What about the other languages?

This following is a letter that was sent to Congressman Crowley:

I resent that your latest newsletter mailed to me was printed half in Spanish. Queens prides itself in being the most ethnically diverse areas of the world, so what about all the other languages that are spoken?

Our government unites us as a people and so does our common language. How do I as an English-speaking person know what you are telling the Spanish-speaking people?

Congressman, unite us don't divide us. Make English the official language of the United States for all government business, and we'll save lots of money just from printing everything in different languages.

Living and growing up in Queens, I know there were many languages spoken around the neighborhood, but in school English was spoken. There were always waves of immigrants in New York, but why now are our schools not performing and students not graduating?

You are not really helping people by catering to them. Immerse them in English, it will help them be successful.

Sincerely,

Richard Polgar
