You Now Know Why I Detest Going To The Post Office

A new study done by the Center For Immigration Studies (CIS) finds that 67% of Hispanic immigrants have a “below basic” understanding of the English language, making them functionally illiterate (in English) in their daily lives.
Even more surprising: English language proficiency was not strongly correlated with the length of time said immigrants lived in the US.
In fact, the study observed almost no difference in English language skills between newly arrived Hispanic immigrants, and those who have lived in the US for 15 years.
