My BFF married a frenchman, and imported him. (lol) He's a sweet guy, and they are great together. But he speaks, well, French. And then English. NOT AMERICAN. English. It's different than ours, and he doesn't "get" slang, or some of the silly things we Americans do.
So, there's a free government program nearby to help with "English as a second language". He went to get a little help to make himself more marketable, and guess what? No help for him! Only people who speak Spanish get help.
The area they live in has high rates of immigration, every country of the world. But no help for any other language. I think this is very discriminatory. Do you?

And people wonder why we assume that most illegals are from Mexico and other places south of the border. LOL. That really is pathetic, OP. It's too bad they don't have programs that aren't just geared towards ONE national origin.

Very discriminatory and not right.
What the name of this free government program?
