Lucio Delgado, born blind, had been studying English for the past six years since coming to the United States from Mexico as a teenager, learning by listening in school and on the radio. He practiced all the civics questions that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officers would ask him for the citizenship test. He got a vision exam by an optometrist so he could prove he is legally blind, asking in his application that he be given the test in Braille. But then came the big problem: the reading portion of the exam. The agent said they received his request for Braille, but, unfortunately, USCIS did not have Braille available. Still, for the record, the officer gave him “three attempts to read a sentence” in English. And, predictably, whether the print was large or small, Delgado couldn’t read what he couldn’t see.

      Maybe Jackson should listen to all the black voters in the South first before making statements like this.

      Hmmm. Does not appear this guy practices evidence-based medicine. That tells us how much we can trust him — not at all.

      High price to pay for happiness. On the other hand, except in the Middle East, he hasn’t started WWIII yet, so I guess it could be worse.
