Speak English, or No Driver’s License

That’s the message Alabama gubernatorial candidate Tim James is sending to everyone coming into his state from another country, much less Mexico. “This is Alabama, we speak English,” says James in his campaign ad, “If you want to live here, learn it.” This is controversial, as it offends persons coming to the U.S. illegally or through a visa.

Um…. I’m sorry, what about the Arizona immigration law? Maybe I need to stop watching Carlos Mencia so much… but should states like Alabama make speaking English a requirement to operate a vehicle? You be the judge.
