From the NYT we learn of a recent proud moment in U.S. Senate history:
When Senator Tim Kaine, Democrat of Virginia, took the Senate floor on Tuesday to deliver a speech in support of animmigration overhaul bill, he did it in a way no senator had done before: entirely in Spanish.
“We are going to have hours upon hours of debate about this on the floor of the Senate, and taking 15 minutes to explain the bill in Spanish just seemed like a good idea,” Mr. Kaine said. “Latinos have so much invested in the outcome of the bill, people ought to know what the bill is about.”
According to records from the Senate Library, Mr. Kaine was the first senator to give a speech all in Spanish on the Senate floor.
Si! Se puede!
