  • Trump’s White House off to Slow Start With Spanish Speakers, Activists Say

    WASHINGTON — The Trump White House no habla español. Well, un poquito. After a succession of administrations that embraced Spanish-language content, President Donald Trump's White House is all but ignoring Spanish speakers even though he has a robust online presence in English. His administration has yet to offer a Spanish White House website. It has eliminated the position of director of Hispanic media outreach. And its Spanish-language Twitter account is heavy with English text and features sloppy translations. White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in January that the administration had its "IT folks working overtime" to roll out a...

    "There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn't mind who gets the credit" - Ronald Reagan I have not had a lot to say in quite a while, and I have explained much of why that is here. Transcribing takes up a lot of time. In addition to the transcription, the other major project that I have been putting time into is getting a speech from one of the Founding Fathers translated into Spanish. I have a full transcript of one of George Washington's speeches up on my Original Sources...

    American students now pledge allegiance to Mexico. They sing its na- tional an- them. And it is sanctioned by the state of Texas. Sound absurd? It is. Last month in a Spanish class at Achieve Early College High School in McAllen, Texas, students recited the Mexican pledge of allegiance and were instructed to memorize the Mexican anthem. Moreover, they had to wear red, white and green - the colors of the Mexican flag - as they fulfilled their class assignment. Public high schools no longer promote American patriotism, but they are doing a superb job of cultivating loyalty to Mexico....

    MIAMI -- South Florida U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen will deliver the Republicans' response to the President's State of the Union in Spanish. Ros-Lehtinen is expected to speak Tuesday night immediately following President Barack Obama's address. Her speech will be aired nationwide by Spanish-language media. A spokesman for Ros-Lehtinen says her remarks will cover the same themes as the response given in English by U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis. Ros-Lehtinen will deliver the speech from Miami, where she is tending to her ailing mother. Read more:

    A San Antonio Democrat on Monday chided President Bush before an international Spanish-speaking audience for vetoing children's health insurance and ignoring the needs of America's Hispanic citizens. But state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte insisted beforehand that her message would be positive. She was selected by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to deliver the Democratic Party's nationally broadcast Spanish-language response immediately after Bush's State of the Union address Monday night. "I am not taking a shot at the president," Van de Putte said from Washington early Monday, where she taped her remarks for broadcast later...

    Van de Putte picked to give Democrats' Spanish response to Bush speech AUSTIN – Sen. Leticia Van de Putte has never been one to shy away from a fight, whether leading fellow Democrats on a 45-day walkout to New Mexico in 2003 or standing alone last year in support of a controversial plan to vaccinate young girls against a sexually transmitted virus. Her skills as a lawmaker in a Texas Legislature dominated by the opposing party propelled her to the presidency of the nonpartisan National Conference of State Legislatures – the first Texan and first Hispanic in that post. And...

    The Culture: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants employers who require English in the workplace to be sued for discrimination. Workplaces like the House of Representatives? To continue this editorial in English, press one. Supporters of open borders like to point out we are a nation of immigrants, which is true. But until recently, the newest immigrants were largely legal ones who didn't just come to America, but also wanted to be part of America — to be Americans. America was called a melting pot of different cultures and ethnicities. The process of becoming an American was called assimilation. That included...
