Compare and Contrast: English Only

"The opposition is full of demagoguery and lies,” [English Only Sponsor Eric Crafton] said. “All we’re talking about is routine governmental business, and if people are here and they’re here legally and they’re starting a business or they’re getting a marriage certificate or they’re doing business in front of the council, it’s supposed to be done in English.”

Crafton also said the bill has nothing to do with illegal immigration and that its purpose is simply to reinforce English as the traditional language of our government.
