Apr 28 - Alabama Gov. Candidate Tim James: "We Speak English. If You Want to Live Here, Learn It"
 

 
VIDEO OF AD AT END

As Arizona's new immigration law has sparked criticism that it would target illegal and legal immigrants alike, one Alabama candidate for governor is betting he can win votes by bringing immigration-related issues to the forefront in his own state.


Republican Tim James last week released an ad calling into question the state's practice of printing driver's license exams in 12 different languages.


"This is Alabama," James says. "We speak English. If you want to live here, learn it. We're only giving that test in English if I'm governor. Maybe it's the business man in me, but we'll save money. And it make sense."


After receiving negative attention from liberal bloggers for the ad, James released a statement yesterday expounding his logic.


"We welcome non-English speaking people, who are legally in the U.S., to Alabama. However, if you want to drive in our states, public safety concerns dictate that you need to speak English," James said. "Political correctness may endear you to the Rachel Maddow crowd, but here in Alabama, the safety of our people comes first."


James' statement said it is important for the nation's governors to protect the interests of states as President Obama and Democrats in Congress press for more "permissive" immigration laws.


The issue of printing driver's licenses in different languages could be a legitimate issue, writes CBS News Chief Political Correspondent, the Atlantic's Marc Ambinder, "but the ethnic coding in the ad is unmistakable, especially because it's not the type of thing that voters in Alabama would care about unless someone deigned to bring it to their attention."


Ambinder also points out that Alabama could lose billions of dollars in federal transportation funding if it were to stop printing the exams in different languages.

a diversion if i ever saw one . don't focus on how racist that sh*t was, focus on how somebody runnin' for office in one of the most notoriously racist states in our country durring the segregation could get away with it in 2010, and on public TV no less... i beleive magicians call it misdirection

booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo o!

theres no official language in the usa! how bout making that a start then that would help this bulls**t crying argument. i see catering to multiple languages as opportunity. opportunity to better myself and expand my brain. I see it as a challenge to try and learn another language and not cry about it and try to convince everybody else to speak the language i already do. lol thats laughable. how easy is it to tell somebody else to learn another language and sit there and cry about it when people dont. dont speal your bulls**t arguments ive heard them all before and frankly they are lame arguments that pull no wieght except show stubborness and weakmindedness. watch me learn spanish pick up a bi-lingual job and make tons of money for me and pass on that knowlege to my future generations so they have a better chance to prosper in abundance as well. while all the half cup empty people continue to cry and say this is america speak english but do nothing at all. hahahhahhahahahahahahaha .

I guess I'm one of the few who don't anything wrong with this. Me personally, I feel if you want to be a citizen in this country, you should know English. Right, it's not our official language, but it's by far the most spoken language in this country.
