English-Only Group Doesn't Make Effort to Hide Anti-Immigrant View
While efforts to make English the official language of the U.S. and eliminate bilingual ballot access are usually linked directly to efforts to restrict immigration or crack down on immigrants, some people might remain confused, thinking that groups like English First are focused merely on promoting the English language. Jim Boulet, executive director of English First, helps to clear that up by opposing expanding English lessons for “the illegals”:
He says it is not the responsibility of the taxpayers to pay for English lessons for people who are in the country illegally.
"It just seems like whatever the question is, the answer is the U.S. taxpayers will pay the bill,” Boulet says. “And then it’s oh, aren't the illegals so wonderful. They send money home. Well I'd send money home too if I didn't have to pay taxes or insurance."
