Well since the Senate is hell bend on turning us into Mexico it seems very appropriate to speak Spanish on the Senate floor. Soon I will expect outrage if English is spoken.

It’s outrageous for a senator to give a speech in a foreign language on the Senate floor.

“immigration reform”

Another example of the kind of misleading terms liberals constantly come up with. This is like having a rash of bank robberies and stating “we need finance reform”.

“Global warming” ..b-but we set records for freezing temperatures last winter!...”OK, we meant ‘climate change’”

“Abortion”...but abortion is murder..”Oh we meant ‘planned parenthood’ and abortion is not murder, you’re just a participant in the ‘war against women’.”

Como se dice "NO" en Espanol?

Its all about minting new democrat voters, and cementing a Democrat-run nation far, far into the future.

And we need to remove all waste containers from throughout the Capitol complex. Just throw your filth on the ground. And legalize graffiti too. Want to spray paint the doors of the Rayburn Building? Help yourself. These idiots like Kaine need to go to East Los Angeles and get a feel for what we can look forward to in our cities.

Another brilliant, intellectual, “Progressive” genius trying to prove he’s so much more enlightened and brilliant than the knuckle-dragging, racist, bible-thumping,
gun-loving, Christian morons out there. /s/

One would imagine there are lots of bellies being filled with the obnoxious, low-down, adolescent antics of these so-called Progressives. (How absolutely loathesome, hateful,
despicable and odious.)

IMHO

So, he’s admitting that “immigration reform” is only intended to benefit Spanish-speaking immigrants?

What about all the other nationalities waiting to get in here? Are they just chopped liver?

Tim Kaine was handpicked and groomed by the leftist democratic machine. I have always distrusted him. The Virginian voter should have stopped him long ago.

There are plenty of Republicans who can offer counter- arguments in Spanish if we really need to go there.

Maybe native speaker Ted Cruz will offer a rebuttal in English, just to make the point.

we are spied on and the guy who tells us this is the target of attacks not the corrupt Govt.
We have now elected officials speaking in Spanish on the floor and now letting in millions of illegals who will be rewarded by breaking the law

Right now Megyn Kelly has some dopey Fed profiler on putting the guy down instead of looking at how obama is making an enemy list and spying on us all

SNOPES In a vote by an early Congress, ENGLISH NEVER became our language;Congress did vote to place all Federal laws in ENGLISH only. English is the de facto, but not the de jure, official language of the U.S. A number of individual states have declared English their official language, no federal law has ever been passed.

That said, English is required to become a citizen.

Therefor KAINE’s “Spanish” speech is an insult to those who spoke a different language, learned English and built this country, as opposed to the welfare system.
