Learning English for Legalization - Here We Go Again

November 18, 2009

At the end of last week, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano announced that the Obama administration would pursue immigration reform legislation in 2010. In her speech, Napolitano reiterated that under the plan promoted by the administration, illegal immigrants would have to register, pay fines and all taxes they owe, pass a criminal background check and learn English.
