I had both my liberal and conservative students agreeing today on this language thing, it's funny how very many would vote for these laws, but our representatives on either side never seem willing, perhaps based on keeping the population group's votes. Whether for or against, I appreciate issues like this being brought up and getting the discussion out there. I like the way this guy has an unapologetic southern accent, says we speak English point blank, and the way he's charging at the camera in one scene. ha
Of course we were discussing the whole Arizona bill today about asking for i.d. papers of suspected illegal immigrants, and the difficulty of an American citizen who's latino not feeling harrassed and what a complex issue the whole thing is, although again every one of my non-Mexican students were all for anti-illegal immigration, but either side just doesn't really seem to know what that means, reform what??
From OKlahoma, there is a legislator trying to make it impossible for illegal immigrants to aquire a birth certificate when having a baby in Oklahoma, aricle here. I'm not completelyl sure if that would even be legal though under our nation's constitution.... any constructive thoughts?
