Rubio Toughens Bill's English Language Requirement

The International Business Times' News article Rubio Toughens Bill's English Language Requirement explains an amendment Senator Marco Rubio introduced to the 2013 Immigration Reform bill that would require undocumented immigrants to learn English before they are given permanent resident status.

I espeically enjoyed Jeff Myers comment on the article: "Yes, great idea. I can see many trying to game the system by merely registering for a class and then not attending. But more importantly, there needs to be federal funding for these adult education English as a second language classes. States have been cutting adult education funding for years. English fluency is a public health and public safety issue!"
