Do you have any idea how much money could be saved if America just required English to be spoken? Billions!
If you are a foreigner and you get arrested, we contact your consulate, and they must provide an interpreter, not us.
Then we send your miscreant ass home, if you are not here legally!
But that’s not the way it works in Liberal’s Utopia. In the Era of Nothingness, we must now provide interpreters in jails.
From an article I read:
Spanish interpreters are in place in the Maricopa County, Arizona, jails as part of a settlement reached in a two-year-old discrimination complaint filed by federal officials against “America’s Sheriff” Joe Arpaio.
“The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office changed many of their practices after the commencement of our litigation, and these agreements ensure that progress continues and the constitutional rights of the people of Maricopa County will be protected for the long term,” Deputy Assistant Attorney General Mark Kappelhoff said, according to The Washington Times.
The settlement, reached this week, means that federal authorities will also be able to demand information on any workplace raids deputies perform, according to the Justice Department, and a ruling is still pending on charges that Arpaio’s deputies discriminated against Hispanics by targeting them during traffic enforcement procedures.
The terms of the 26-page settlement call for Arpaio to provide bilingual services for jail inmates and members of the public, including providing classes in Spanish and other languages for inmates, The Washington Times reports.
The settlement came following a unanimous vote on Wednesday by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, reports the Los Angeles Times.
The agreement settles three of the four charges made against Arpaio, who calls himself “America’s toughest sheriff.” The Justice Department had charged him with punishing jail inmates for speaking Spanish, retaliating against public officials, and conducting workplace raids targeting Latinos.
I think Sheriff Joe shouldn’t punish inmates for speaking their native tongue. However, he shouldn’t have to accommodate them. And if they only speak Spanish, they aren’t Americans, so deport them.
That Sheriff Joe was forced by the courts to do such nonsense shows just how far Left America has gone. This man runs the most efficient and cost-effective jail in the nation, but instead of learning from him, Liberals penalize him. They want to make an example of his diligence, as what NOT to do!
