Huffington Post: Frederick County, MD has established English as its official language. "In a 4-1 vote on Tuesday night, Frederick County commissioners approved the English-only measure that would bar any foreign language from being used in government documents but would make exceptions in instances where there are public health and safety concerns and for tourism and trade." The president of the commissioners board of the county suggested that it would deter illegal immigration. More likely, he's interested in deterring anyone who isn't a monolingual English speaker. The commissioners were inspired by the work of ProEnglish, an English-only advocacy organization.
