This letter is in response to Matt Milner’s article of Thursday, April 10, entitled “Jurisprudence in Espanol.”

Mr. Milner failed to point out the fact that legal U.S. citizen/taxpayers already pay the bill to offer immigrants FREE “English as a Second Language” courses. Taxpayers also pay to hire interpreters for these people.

Now, it appears that when immigrants refuse to take advantage of the opportunity to learn English, the taxpayers are again being hit with the bill for court officers to learn Spanish.

Why are United States citizens the ones who always have to pay to accommodate those who refuse to assimilate themselves to our society? This certainly doesn’t do anything to encourage immigrants to learn English (The Official Language of Iowa).
