Not requiring people to be proficient in English in order to become a citizen is beyond outrageous. Non-English speakers cost the country a fortune, not just in the schools, but also in all government functions and in healthcare. Once per year I go for follow-up testing in Boston for a cancer I had 10 years ago. Without fail I see people being accompanied by translators, the cost of which either gets added to healthcare costs or govt. entitlement programs cost. These aren’t family members accompanying grandma. They’re people on someone’s payroll.
