RAICES
🚨 FYI: Despite there being no official U.S. language, just denied someone the right to post a bond for their loved ones unless they speak English.

They arrived at the San Antonio ERO (Enforcement & Removal Operations) field office only to be told that they could not pay their loved one’s bond because they did not speak English and couldn’t understand the forms.

We can’t begin to tell you how horrified we are by what one rogue agent is calling a “new policy.” But we’ll continue to fight ICE’s BS.

There’s no law that says “English is the official language” in those words, but there‘s many that demand the use of English. E.g., English is required of the non-voting house rep of Puerto Rico, which disqualifies most Puerto Ricans from serving.

Also juries in federal courts, by statute, must speak, read and write English, which again disqualifies most Puerto Ricans from being jurors in their local federal district court.

The irony is that investigates and sometimes sues state agencies for engaging in this exact type of behavior.

Shouldn’t ICE be able to speak Spanish?
