I can’t think of a single immigrant, illegal or legal, who refused to speak English. usually the illegals struggle, but they try.
I wish I could say the same of my own countrymen in regards to Spanish.
so be 100% honest: have you REALLY ever met an immigrant, illegal or otherwise, who refused to speak or learn English given the opportunity?
40 MILLION people in the USA speak Spanish as their primary language. that’s reason enough to learn.
I grew up in an agricultural area 30 minutes outside SF, I know ALOT of immigrants.
