    misleading title of that article, obviously designed to stir controversy. The 3 were sentenced to learn english, get a GED and a job or they would be in violation of their parole. They had served 4 months in prison for conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

    I don't know what you are talking about , the judge will drop the charges if they get a GED.

    I guess only one of them spent time in jail, I read it earlier in the day and must have misunderstood. Nevertheless, they are obviously harping on the english requirement in the hopes that people will react to the title without reading the article.

    But I'll bite anyway, why should they have to pass an english test if they already passed a GED and got a job? Seems unnecessarily redundant no?

    How do you know they already have a GED , maybe they don't.They never had a Ged ( born in mexico?) , that's what pushed the judge to make that decision.

    To help legal immigrant to learn english is not "racist" , learning a new language is good for you no matter is the situation .

    Do you speak italian? I read that you went to italy before. Italian is a beautiful language,like french and spanish (latin).:)

    The LOONS want the test given in Spanish and they want you to learn Spanish because your the dirty American Capitalist war mongering racist White Mother F-cker.

    I wouldn't force them to learn English let them stay right where they are if thats what they want, the only people they will be able to communicate with is themselves and few Cops.

    The batty loony concept of Liberalism loves to crow about their favorite topic of self gratifying do-gooding slobberism, that being, "Diversity" then after they have mixed all these different people up together who all have different cultures and languages the Loons sit back and marvel at this beautiful thing they have done, they puff up their chests and say to themselves "how great and good I am", then somebody suggests "one language for all" "oh no" screams the loon, that will offend them, "oh god no"
    so now the Liberal Mush Heads have a schoolyard full of little immigrants all SEGREGATED into little groups of their own kind, the Liberal Dream of diversity just went up sh!t creek because none of these kids know what the f-ck the other kids are talking about---------:confused:--:singing:
