Republican Carlos Gutierrez, the Secretary of Commerce for George W. Bush’s second term, said English should not be the official language of the U.S. government on Sunday.

Speaking on a panel on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Gutierrez said Republicans should lead on “comprehensive immigration reform” and the DREAM Act, while getting rid of “things like English as the official language of government.”

Gary Bauer, also on the panel to discuss the road ahead for the Republican party, jumped in and claimed Gutierrez was spouting nonsense.

“Seventy-five percent of the American people believe that English, sir, is the official language of the United States,” Bauer said. “I don’t understand why you would jettison 75%… in the idea that it’s going to get you votes.”
