But Jennifer Ng’andu, Director of Health and Civil Rights Policy Project at National Council of La Raza, thinks it's a terrible idea to delay launching Cuidadodesalud.gov.

"You need to roll out the Spanish language at the same time as the English," Ng'andu told Fox News Latino. "You need to make sure that the community has trust. It is a real concern that someone goes to a website, after all this fever pitch around October 1st, and then they walk away."

In the meantime, a Spanish-language paper application will still be made available come October 1st.
