What I can envision happening, starting with New Mexico, will first be demands for official bilingual status and then after that is firmly established, new demands for a special status along the lines of Quebec in Canada. In the US govt already is doing the bilingual thing with documents and such but in Quebec they have worked hard to ban English altogether from day to day living. Many quietly still make sure their kids can speak English so that they can function outside of Quebec but in my travels, once outside of tourist spots, you are hard pressed to find anyone who speaks English. 100 years ago pretty much everyone in Quebec was bilingual.
