Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

Executive Order 13166 I looked this up to try to find when the Federal law was passed which required government to conduct business in other languages. I discovered that in communities with refugees from Arab countries that they have benefit programs furnished in Arabic. To me this spells trouble. Since very few Americans can read or write in Arabic those hired to provide services will no doubt be recent immigrants themselves. Do you really believe that they will deny whatever service is available? As more and more communities develop with large populations of Arabic speaking people the possible abuse is without limit. It is time to correct this program. I look to this new administration to start correcting the hugely expensive give away programs.
