Letter to the Editor: make English an immigration requirement

"This is a rebuttal to writer Anita Wadhwani's story, 'Police, Hispanic groups to attack language barrier.' (Feb. 20)"

"The system could tremendously cut down on [misunderstandings] — as well as taxpayer funded 'language training' — if lobbyists would lobby for, and legislators would legislate, a simple, yet effectively important, law: Require and demand that, not only Hispanic but all immigrants pass a certain level English equivalency test prior to legally entering and setting up household in America."
