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.
