"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.”

It should be noted that she was speaking plain “English" to the reporter...or is that her version of American speak?
And... if she was speaking American, as a proud Alaskan, was she also speaking Alaskan? A state that contains several indigenous languages? Shouldn’t she know all the languages of her land?
So to all of you Australians, Canadians, and other "so-called" English speakers. Before your next visit to the U.S. perhaps you should take a few language courses in “American.” Gotcha'
