There was a time when all immigrants, who came to this country and became citizens, had to learn English. How can they function in this country without it???

This is what should be done. We will ask that all people coming to lie and work in this country learn English. We would ask kindly. If they refuse and get into trouble and are required to have an interpreter, then, they should pay the cost of that interpreter, all of it.

From what is normally reliable sources I've recently learnt that a new law is in the offing requiring all
judges and lawyers in the U.S. to be bilingual.
Primarily Spanish and English but it looks like also
Portugese, French and Mandarin can qualify in stead of Spanish. About time USA turns more international.
