You have to go down a bit, but here are the key paragraphs:

It is currently an elective for students studying to become doctors, but Ms. Gonzālez wants her course to become a requirement for new physicians. Relying on translators is not efficient, she says.
"I kind of have mixed emotions, because I kind of feel if you're going to be in this country, you've got to learn English," Ms. Gonzālez said. "But at the same time, I recognize the fact that we have people from all over and it eventually ends up saving money because you're helping these people before their health gets out of control."
Language isn't the only thing that can separate a Hispanic patient and his doctor. There are cultural divides as well.
American doctors often refer their patients to other doctors, not realizing it's harder for most Hispanics, who generally work lower-wage jobs, to repeatedly take off from work, Ms. Gonzālez said.
Hispanics are also more likely to use herbal remedies and nontraditional healers.
Dr. Dubin said he has come across Hispanic patients who believe taking hot chili peppers will cure them. He teaches students to negotiate treatment rather than insult the patient. For instance, an antibiotic can be used along with the chili peppers.

SINCE SAN ANTONIO & HOUSTON ARE SANTUARY CITIES THEY WILL PROBABLY WIN OUT ON THE SPANISH. I HAVE COMCAST CABLE IN HOUSTON AND 90 % OF THE CHANNELS ARE IN SPANISH. AND GOV. PERRY CAMPAIGNED AGAINST ILLEGALS THEN TURNED AFTER HE GOT ELECTED, HE AND BUSH ARE BACK STABBING TRAITOR BUDDIES.

Based on the article, the title of this thread should read: One Hispanic in Texas wants to Require Doctors to learn Spanish

Not "Hispanics (plural)" and not "force" - You are distorting the facts of the news article.

Give it time and the whole La Raza gang will be pushing for it, just as they did for all teachers and pricinples to learn and know Spanish because the little kiddies are apparently too lazy to learn English.

Amen! This whole Illegal aliens/borders/INVASION/sovereignty/Mexico issue has me so fired up...and IMO it's the most glaring & disastrous failure of Bush's presidency!

I voted for the man twice, and now I feel like a total fool for doing so!

Thank goodness for term limits! Come Jan. 2009, I really won't be too sorry to see Bush go.

Maybe by then he'll have a chance to go down and run for president of Mexico.

It's sad it took 50 years for blacks to make gains like getting great teaching and administrative jobs in schools only to be forced out because they don't speak Spanish.

The prez and the gov will be called traitors as soon as a terrorist comes across the Mexican border and kills a lot of Americans.

Yes, you are absolutely correct!!!! I do feel for the blacks of this country. About the time they start making inroads to the middle class, the government brings and allows immigrants, legal and illegal, to take that away from them.

I've been thinking that too. It is beyond ludicrous for the Bushies to be waging a "global war on terror" while ignoring the fact that people are waltzing over our southern border like water through a colander—and we have no idea who they are!
