The delay in reauthorizing the Voting Rights Act has nothing to do with racial discrimination. It has everything to do with expecting US Citizens to have a basic use of the “national language:”
The Washington establishment is shocked at the discovery that Americans don’t like the idea of the federal government forcing local governments to provide foreign-language ballots. That’s one more indication of how out of touch our leaders are with grass-roots America.
Congress will make a terrible mistake if leadership doesn’t allow representatives to vote on King’s amendment to delete the requirement for foreign-language ballots from the Voting Rights Act. We don’t want to be a bilingual nation and suffer the problems of other countries with “linguistic division.”
