IMMIGRANTS SHOULD LEARN ENGLISH

Something that affects all Americans is immigration. Where are all these people going to live? What are they going to do to support themselves? How will they interact with others who don't share the same language or customs?

I think these questions need answering, especially now that many Cubans are trying to immigrate to the United States. In Florida, it's hard to go to buy something or communicate with people simply because they don't know how to speak any English, and that's what bothers me. This is an English-speaking country and if immigrants want to be a part of it, then they should learn to speak English.Maybe there should be a standard English test that the immigrants should be required to take if they want to become citizens.
