Rather than encouraging Spanish-speaking people within our borders to learn English, the U.S. government has unveiled a Web site loaded with information --- totally in Spanish, Grumpy Editor has discovered.
It contains immigration information along with a number of categories, including one sure to garner a number of clicks: government benefits and financial assistance.
A search feature finds links to federal, state and local government resources --- also in Spanish.
If there are unanswered questions in the material, the site promises an e-mail response in two business days --- in Spanish.
If dialing a government representative is easier, a toll-free number is provided with an option to speak with an information specialist --- in Spanish.
After noting the popularity of the Spanish-language Web site, will decision makers in Washington --- to be fair and balanced --- initiate other U.S. government Web sites in Italian, Portuguese, French, Greek, Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, Chinese, among others?
