Need help with this--

Should English be declared the official language of the US? List three effects that you believe such a law would have. Then write one paragraph explaining your position.

I think it should be declared the official language, but I'm not sure what effects it would have...can someone please help?

Thanks

    I agree, however, it depends only on what official language means. Does that mean in a criminal trial a non-English speaker does not have an intrepreter? Does it mean a child not speaking English entering school does not get ESL support? Does that mean on the border roadsigns are not in Spanish and English? (ALTO does mean STOP).
    So the effect I am thinking on is to make it official language, but do it rationally, not cutting out public safety, fair trials, and civil rights.
