I do wish those questions were allowed to be asked when someone applies for welfare benefits, healthcare or enrolling their child in school, however.

I believe these workes CHOSE NOT TO respond to this idodic question...and I bet laughed their asses off after this nut walk up and ask if they were "legal". Why, because I would do the exact same...LMAO.

You can ask any stupid question you wish...but dont take a non-reponse as a lack of English skill.

I never mentioned anyone being offeded by the question, yet you mentioned it as being offensive....very transparent.

I would have ask if they had a green card.
Whether they speak english or not, "green card" is one thing they DO understand.

If they were legal, there wouldn't have been a problem responding.
If they were offended, they can get over it.
