Lesson in hypocrisy: 'They must learn English'
Arizona Republic
Jul. 10, 2007

"They must learn English!" Anti-immigrant forces have that stipulation atop their laundry list of what must be done before Spanish-speaking newcomers can ever be considered to become new Americans. Meanwhile, Arizona lawmakers ended their 2007 session without addressing a federal judge's order to increase state funding for English-language-learner programs. And how many phone calls of "They must learn English!" do you think legislators are getting? That would be my educated guess, too.
