If DHS hired employees who cannot communicate, then fire the employee plus the the HR personal who hired the employee. Only hire employees who speak English. Communication only can occur when both parties speak a common language. Bilingual is great when your at home or with family, but a common language is paramount. I'm sure the French or Germans have language proficiency standards. The story of the Tower of Babel would be a learning point.
When I first read this I thought it was referring to employees not performing. I then read the summary and was left wondering. Finally I read the "in depth" and now it sounds like an equipment issue. We have spent millions since 2001 and haven't fixed the problem. Whether it's poor employees, poor training or poor equipment it boils down to incompetence. Do we really need a bill to straighten this out? No wonder government is so messed up.
