US Hispanics Got The Memo

and more important, can apparently read it.

English Use on the Rise Among Latinos | Pew Research Center's Hispanic Trends Project

A record 33.2 million Hispanics in the U.S. speak English proficiently, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data.1 In 2013, this group made up 68% of all Hispanics ages 5 and older, up from 59% in 2000.

And the growth in the US Hispanic population is mainly from US births, rather than new immigration.

Hopefully it will put a cork in the political demand for a "National Language" amendment to the Constitution.

As well as an end to the ridiculous assertion that immigrants aren't learning English. We've had that discussion here a few times if I recall.

Yes, what a shame it would be if Americans accidentally became bi-lingual.
