Date: Tue, 19 Sep 1995 20:29:04 -0400 From: "Cynthia L. Moore" Subject: English Only The discussion's gotten so polite over the past few days that I thought it might be good to mix it up with the English Only topic again. I had my law clerk look for some law review articles on the subject. He came up with "Declaring English the Official Language: Prejudice Spoken Here." It appeared in the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review, Vol.24, 1989. It's somewhat old, but the background it provides is good. It includes an equal protection analysis of legislation introduced by Rep. Norman Shumway (R-CA). (I believe someone had mentioned the English Only might create problems.) The article opens with: "If English was good enough for Jesus Christ, it's good enough for me!" (tongue in cheek) and does not present a balanced view of the issue, but a strongly anti-English Only position. Nonetheless, it makes for very interesting reading.
