Feedback to the "Spanish as a Disability" story. . . . .

Dear Editor --

Re: "żIs Spanish a Disability in Oxnard?"

Not really. Not any more than the 100-odd other languages spoken
natively by other Oxnard residents. The native speakers of those other
languages, however, are mostly all here legally and most all of them are
endeavoring to Americanize themselves. Speaking and reading and writing
English fluently figure heavily in their efforts.

Despite that, there are some who find English impossible. As a crossword
puzzle solver, I agree!

So, for those folks who refuse or who cannot learn English, then one of
their ethic/cultural/national civic groups or organizations could make
translation arrangements for them. In the case of Spanish-speaking
persons, perhaps an ongoing process for Oxnard's civic meetings could be
made via the local Mexican consulate.

I see no reason to further burden the Oxnard taxpayer. And I'm firmly
opposed to favoring one immigrant group over another.

How do you justify equating having a disability With
speaking Spanish?

Why do you state that "people with disabilities who
are being most economical depressed and socially
discriminated against group in the nation" are catered
too these fact are from the Harris poll.
