It’s, unfortunately, nothing new that most states offer driver’s license exams in other languages, like Spanish in Florida and California and Arabic, here in Michigan.
But did you know that in Alabama the state offers its driver’s license exam in TWELVE(!) languages other than English? And last week, Alabama Judge William Shashy upheld this multiple-language offering, in a lawsuit filed by ProEnglish.
Just to remind you, here is one of the Arabic street signs we have in Michigan:
We give kudos to Alaska, Maine, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Wyoming, all of which require residents to take their driver’s license exams in ENGLISH.
If we continue to have unfettered borders, unlimited/uncontrolled immigration, and absurd accommodations to language and cultural differences, the character of our country will continue to degrade downward. Judge Shashy and other spineless Americans like him are the cause.
