California University Now Paying Employees to Learn Spanish


by John Urban | Top Right News

Just when you think things can’t get more insane in America’s Sanctuary State — California —  it does exactly that.

Back in January we reported on how the University of California system made a generous and shameful pledge to help illegal aliens earn a college degree — at the same time they are slashing aid to citizen students to the bone.

And despite a staggering $5 million in loan assistance to them — illegal aliens were still complaining they didn’t get tuition for FREE.

And now as they bring in thousands of illegal aliens into the UCal system — students, workers, and faculty — they seem to be realizing that a great many of them do not speak English.

So what is their solution? To fund a program to help them learn the language of the United States?

Surely you must be joking….this is CALIFORNIA, after all.

No…UCLA has instead announced it will now foot the bill for its employees to learn to speak Spanish under a new program launched this month:

Employees can take the class during working hours as well as get the cost of the Spanish course – $177 – reimbursed by their department budgets, campus officials told The College Fix.

“It is important as a university and employer that we are on the cutting edge providing our staff with the necessary tools needed to meet the future,” Lee Walton, a UCLA diversity coordinator, said in an email to The College Fix. “The exciting opportunity for a staff employee to learn a language during working hours is priceless.”

The new class is offered by UCLA’s “Staff Diversity and Compliance Office.”

According to campus officials, the program has allowed managers “to speak Spanish with their staff members” and they “have noticed improved morale in the workplace.”

Wonderful! So in addition to crossing right over the moral hazard of permitting illegal aliens to invade the U-Cal system, UCLA will completely surrender to the language of the invaders themselves.

UCLA has about 21,757 full-time employees. At $117 per head, that is a potential cost to UCLA of over $2.5 million to essentially create a satellite campus for Universite de Mexico.

Is it not bad enough that California dishes out $10.5 BILLION each and every year for the cost of illegal aliens, or that in L.A. County alone, illegal aliens receive $650 million in welfare payments every year?

No wonder so many Californians are signing on to a plan to divide the state up into six pieces.
