Arizona Candidate Asked To Prove English Fluency

This year, Alejandrina Cabrera put city officials of San Luis, Arizona in the hot seat. Twice, Cabrera and the group she heads, For a San Luis with a Future, launched unsuccessful recall drives against the mayor.

Now, Cabrera, who is vying for a seat on the City Council, finds herself in the hot seat.

Last week, the council approved a motion asking for verification that Cabrera meets a state law requiring any person holding office in the state, county or city to speak, write and read English.
