So by selling this book, you're endorsing the employment of illegals.

Remind me to NOT visit your site, or buy anything from you, ever.

Why would you say that?

We are in no way advocating illegal practices of any kind. I am sure there are many legal applications for this book. I am sorry if we offended you or anyone else by providing this book. Our intentions are to provide a product that people need. We do not endorse any illegal activities.

i think that may be a touch extreme there 5.0. i think english should be spoken in the us, but what will be, will be. or "que sera, sera" if you prefer.

It want matter if you hire them or not somebody else will, they are here to stay whether we like it or not. This country has so many different breeds it want be long they are going to have to come up with new nationalities. There want be any thoroughbreds left in the United States they will all be mutts.

Its a HORRIBLE idea!!!

It has US learning THEIR language - the exact opposite of the way it should be.

Try this...
Make a Spanish-to-English book that we can give to the employees, cheaply of course.
