Does anyone know how much it costs us hardworking taxpayers to get a non-English-speaking child through school or family medical treatment?

You figure that every child has to have an interpreter for themselves as well as their parents every time there needs to be communication. This isn’t cheap, and God only knows how many different languages there are.

All this is tacked on to the cost of supporting them with more and better stuff than the average citizen has, and they expect it. Also, I don’t think that either the child or the parents want to learn. If they did, they wouldn’t be speaking in their native tongue when out in public. They would at least try to practice English.

This is America and the main language is English and only English, as it should be. Give them all a time frame to learn, or say goodbye.
