Certainly, the mechanics exist. What is at question is the will- and that is as much financial as it is political.

The will is lacking. It’s Arizona. San Luis provides translation for the office holders who only speak English because they recognize that their constituents are more comfortable with Spanish, but they won’t provide translation for Spanish speakers because state law says they don’t have to. The law requires English proficiency for office holders, but does not define it, and enforcement is by political whim. This woman was disqualified by a test that no one else had to take.
