Re: “Ask a Mexican!

In this commentary, Hasta la Madre en Sta. Bárbara makes a common mistake, but one which deserves correcting: There is no official language in the United States of America. English is the common language of the United States. It is in that respect, the common language of this country, but it is not in any legal respect, the official language at the Federal level.

HOWEVER, English is the official language of U.S. states. Twenty-seven states have recognized English as an official language, either via statutory or constitutional law (or both). Louisiana, Maine, and New Mexico additionally recognize English as a de facto official language, but it is not, per se, codified as such.
