Rep. Bobby Schilling (R-IL) stirred up controversy, on Tuesday, for a statement he made back in April when he claimed that Hispanics had trouble learning the English because they had not learned Spanish, reports RawStory.com.

Rep. Schilling said: “One of the biggest problems is, you know, I’ve got some Hispanic friends is that a lot of those folks that don’t know English, is primarily because they don’t even know Spanish. They don’t even know their own language. So that’s why you’ve got these teachers coming in helping them to try and get them better with their own language and then kind of teach them. It’s a pretty tough battle.”

A recording of his statement at a town hall was posted online by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, reports the Quad Cities Online.

Rep. Schilling is running against Democrat Cheri Bustos and Independent Eric Reyes.
