Found this while looking into another question:
New Census Bureau Report Analyzes Nation’s Linguistic Diversity:
Population Speaking a Language Other than English at Home Increases by 140 Percent in Past Three Decades
The number of people 5 and older who spoke a language other than English at home has more than doubled in the last three decades and at a pace four times greater than the nation’s population growth, according to a new U.S. Census Bureau report analyzing data from the 2007 American Community Survey and over a time period from 1980 – 2007. In that time frame, the percentage of speakers of non-English languages grew by 140 percent while the nation’s overall population grew by 34 percent.
It makes me wonder if the English-only advocates are trying to douse a fire with a water pistol.
