What a Bunch of Horseshit

(LOUISVILLE) -- Prosecutors, public defenders and judges from Jefferson County will begin a Spanish language immersion course aimed at easing the transition of a growing number of immigrants in the court system.

Beginning in January, 21 people in the inaugural class will include attorneys from the Jefferson County Attorney's Office, Commonwealth Attorney's Office, public defenders and district judges. They will go through a year of multicultural training, including an intense eight-month language course.

The officials will finish their training with a trip to Mexico, where they will live with a local family in Morelia, the capital of Michoacan, for two weeks, studying Spanish, observing the culture and visiting the local courts. The program is similar to the one used by Louisville police that ended with nine police officers visiting Mexico earlier this year.

Jefferson County District Judge Angela McCormick Bisig says the idea is to help non-English speaking immigrants navigate the court system more quickly and feel more comfortable making decisions that will affect their lives.

Bisig says more than 6,500 Spanish speaking people were in Jefferson County courts in 2005, a 51 percent increase over 2004. While the courts provide interpreters, many people who appear in court do not speak English.

I'd make the court systems as hard to navigate as the damn Rio Grande.

I'm sick of catering to everyone else except ENGLISH SPEAKING AMERICAN CITIZENS!!!
