For all those that think that the United States should be monolingual and that the Spanish language should be eradicated, here is something to ponder. Nine states, three U.S. territories and hundreds of city’s, towns, counties and parishes have Spanish names.
Every few decades one group or another emerges that would like to stifle, repress or eliminate Spanish speakers from the Unites States. It will never happen. Spanish speaking people have been on this continent since before it was named (North) America.
There are an estimated 59.9 million Hispanic/Latino people in the United States, comprising 18.3% of the population. There are more than one million Hispanic/Latino residents in ten US states – Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York and Texas.
