Is it becoming more/less common for latino en america to not speak spanish?

I am just curious, I met a kid whose whole family is mexican but they did not teach him spanish so he can be more americanized and he told me he hates when people assume he knows spanish. Is it becoming more common for 2nd/3rd generations of latino people in america to not speak spanish, or not know it fluently?

  4. yes it is becoming more common for latinos in america to not speak spanish. I’m bilingual and can honestly say that it is so much better than only speaking one language. It has saved me from many situations. some parents don’t realize the damage they are causing by not teaching their home language to these children. Better jobs await those who speak more than one language!!
