One Louisiana official doesn't want Mexicans to speak English, and he's trying to deny funds to a local library in order to keep Latinos from accessing the resources.
Lindel Toups, who sits on the Lafourche Parish City Council, wants to route funding away from a library and into an area prison. His justification? Well, the Biblioteca Hispana section helps Spanish-speakers learn English. According to him, that’s a bad thing.
