I would like to thank Fabiola Santiago for speaking truth to power. Her June 12 column, Some say ‘sí,’ while Rubio says ’yes,’ regarding Sen. Marco Rubio’s English-language proficiency amendment to the immigration bill was right on.
The proposed amendment is nothing more than pandering to his tea party base, regrettably, at the expense of so many others of Hispanic heritage. I wonder if his parents, if faced with meeting their son’s language-proficiency test, would have been able to cross that hurdle. There are many adjectives that come to mind when I think of the senator, but one truly fits the bill: sinvergüenza — shameless!
