“I think we can send a message and say, ‘You want to be in America? A. You better be here legally or you’re out of here. B. When you’re here, let’s speak American,'” Palin told CNN’s Jake Tapper in an interview that aired on "State of the Union” Sunday. “I mean, that’s just — let’s speak English and that’s kind of a unifying aspect of a nation — the language that is understood by all.
The above statement were the views aired by Sarah palin in an interview with CNN on the issue of illegal immigration.
Apparently as you can see from the interview, she is a "Trumper"
Palin’s comments were in response to the dustup between Republican presidential hopefuls Jeb Bush and Donald Trump after Trump suggested candidates not speak Spanish while on the campaign trail. Bush, who speaks Spanish, called Trump intolerant.
“I don’t know what choosing to speak English or Spanish in a conversation, what that would have to do — somebody opposing it — with tolerance or not,” Palin continued. “I think it’s a benefit of Jeb Bush to be able to be so fluent in Spanish because we have a large and wonderful Hispanic population that is helping to build America, and that’s good, and that’s a great relationship and connection that he has with them through his wife and through his family connections.”
Trump, the current frontrunner in the race for the 2016 GOP nomination, has said he would consider Palin for a post in his administration.
Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, said she would consider the position of energy secretary in Trump’s cabinet.
“I think a lot about the Department of Energy, because energy is my baby,” Palin said. “Oil and gas and minerals, those things that God has dumped on this part of the Earth for mankind’s use instead of us relying on unfriendly foreign nations.”
