Arizona and Spanish: A Toxic Mix

First, the state of Arizona decided that it would allow police to stop anyone who looked like an “illegal immigrant” and arrest them.  Just because a person has an accent or speaks another language shouldn’t mean that police have the right to arrest them!  But now the Education Department in Arizona supposedly has ordered school districts to get rid of teachers who speak English with “heavy accents” or who don’t speak English like a native American!!  Next thing the state will probably do is eliminate the Spanish language program altogether!!  What will happen if other states do the same thing?  Will learning Spanish become obsolete?
