American is Not a Language

                           A few weeks ago at high school in Cliffside, New Jersey, a substitute teacher got frustrated and said to a group of students that were speaking Spanish the following words” U.S soldiers are not fighting for you to speak Spanish they are fighting for you to speak English” One of the student that was involved name Vianery Cabrera responded back to by “I laughed first of all, that’s not a language,” Vianery told NBC News. “I have the right to speak Spanish. I have the right to speak English. I have the right to speak whatever language I speak, and that’s my right. There’s no law that says that I should or I must speak English.” The student responded to this by pulling the fire alarm and getting everyone out of school and there they protested.
