Century of the Common Iowan: Summit on Immigration Today in Marshalltown
Excerpted from this post at Century of the Common Iowan
... This session included a question and answer session with a panel that includes 2 members from the school district, a person from the Chamber of Commerce, the director of the Community College, and a Marshalltown resident who immigrated from Mexico over ten years ago. Most of the questions pertained to education because most of the panel is from the education field. Here is one of question that was asked that had a great answer from one of panelists (which recieved loud applause)... Q: Should it be a requirement to speak English when someone passes the border? A: It wasn't a requirement when my Grandfather came to this nation.
