Language Magazine;Oct2009, Vol. 9 Issue 2, p10
The article presents the deportation proceedings for Cirila Baltazar Cruz who speaks a language that has no English. The Department of Human Services in Mississippi views that her inability to speak English made her unfit for her newborn child, which made them take the child. The state found that she is a prostitute after her language has been translated. However, her supporters, including the Southern Poverty Law Center, claim that the quandary came up from inadequate translation.
