English should be the official language of this country. After all our constitution is written in English. Our laws are written in English. Our law makers speak English. A vast majority of our citizens speak only English. I do not have a problem with official documents and such being printed and distributed in other languages as long as they are for people whom speak English as a second language. In my opinion in order to be a U.S. citizen you should be required to speak and read English. Because if you cannot read or speak it how do you know what our constitution and our laws say.

Around here it would be a close second followed by Polish and Spanish.
