Do all Latinos in the U.S speak Spanish fluently?

     It depends on how you define "Latino"...

    Is a person born in the U.S. to Latino parents a "Latino"? if so, I guarantee you that most of those people speak little to none Spanish at all... 

    Now, even Latinos who moved to the U.S. as teenagers and have been living in the U.S. for many years, end up speaking broken Spanish... It's not easy to speak a language fluently if you live in a nation where such language is  not the national language.  In Miami you find lots of Latinos, many of them don't even care about learning the English language yet their Spanish isn't that good either..

    No. For example, Rafael Eduardo ("Ted") Cruz (Cuban father, American mother) raised in Texas can't say more than a few words in a terrible Spanglish. On the other hand, Marco Rubio, born in Miami (Cuban parents), speaks perfect Cuban Spanish.

    No.  Some, like Ritchie Valens, could not speak it at all, and had to learn "La Bamba" phonetically.
