Sarah Palin Tells Immigrants To ‘Speak American’ (Video)

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is in the spotlight again after she said something unintelligent.

In a recent discussion with CNN’s Jake Tapper, she praised Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush for speaking fluent Spanish, but made it clear that immigrants in the United States should learn to speak “American.”

Opposing Views reports:

“I think that it’s a benefit of Jeb Bush to be able to be so fluent in Spanish because we have a large and wonderful Hispanic population that you know is helping to build America, and that’s good, and that’s a great relationship and connection that he has with them through his wife and through his family connections.

“On the other hand, you know, I think we can send a message and say, ‘You want to be in America, A, you’d better be here legally or you’re out of here. B, when you’re here, let’s speak American, I mean, let’s speak English, and that’s a kind of a unifying aspect of a nation is the language that is understood by all.”
