It's simple. It's called doing the right ....ing thing. I wouldn't emigrate to Mexico or some other Spanish speaking country, try to become a citizen or resident and sit back and say "I want to continue speaking English, you all should have to learn MY language so I can communicate". To me that's insanely arrogant.
What I love about America is that it's a melting pot for many cultures. Part of that *melting* process is assimilation. Knowing where you're from, but NOT letting it dictate where you must go in life. Speaking two languages is a blessing, not a burden. The sooner the rest of these people take their prideful heads out of their asses and realize that, the better.
