We’ve got more anti-immigrant legislation working its way through the House.
If passed, the bill would “require that commercial driver’s license tests be given in English.” ( Currently the test is given in 7 different languages. )
Do I really need to explain why this is a bad idea?
It does nothing to help non-native English speakers integrate into English-speaking society and it discriminates against would-be drivers on the basis of national origin.
It’s also really bad for business. Foreign companies do not want to locate in a state that creates barriers for skilled foreign workers and their families.
I understand why xenophobic Republicans support this kind of anti-immigrant legislation, but could someone please explain to me why two Democrats ( John Otterman and Sandra Harwood ) are cosponsoring it?
