YouTube - " I Had To Leave Because I Couldn't Speak Spanish
I watched the video and something seems a little fishy to me. The woman comes up to the podium and tells her "story" and then the councilwomen conveniently comes in with a well prepared statement about her own issues concerning Spanish. She brings up the issue about the ballot and then all the rest about or country needing to make English official......etc. I think that woman was a plant. I don't think what she claimed happened ever did. It is very possible that the councilwoman cooked the whole thing up so she could have a perfect segway into advancing her agenda. Politicians do this kind of stuff all the time. The council woman even conveniently mentioned her election; I wonder if when that was recorded was campaign time.

I don't see the need to have a WIC office for anyone- English, Spanish, Indian, Chinese speaker, whatever. No wonder California is bankrupt.

We have that WIC crap here in Arizona as well. If nothing else; the signage and intake counselors should be in English only.

Until we have a budget surplus, all that should disappear.

Have you ever been in a town they got hold of? It will go from a nice town too a crime ridden ghetto in a few years. It just makes me sick inside too see this happen in America.
Thank you well said, I see evidence daily of the blight created by the invasion!

When I learn Spanish is when I move to Mexico, Until then they can learn English.

Ditto.

If I decided to live in Mexico (legally), I sure as hell would learn Spanish as well.
